I believe all moms should have a day off. Or an hour or two off, every week. It’s when you just go out, do what you want to do, or just relax.
Sometime last April, when my sister-in-law and her family stayed at Sofitel Philippine Plaza, I took the chance to check out on Le Spa. I used their facilities, as my SIL’s guest, and tried the jacuzzi and sauna. It was such an experience! The warmth of the water and the gentle back massages it gave relaxed me. The sauna was also relaxing and cleansing. Just like taking your mind off from worries, even for just a moment.
That spa moment had its part two after just a week. Fred and I went to Wensha Spa in Pasay. When I saw that the jacuzzi was kind of crowded, I opted for the massage. The therapist was very good. She hit all the right aching spots and gently eased the tensed nerves. The service was so good that I forgot what type of massage she used on me. I believe it’s Swedish massage. The peppermint oil was so calming that I almost dozed off!
Seriously liking the idea of relaxation, I will now make it part of my regimen. Be it at the comfort of my home, or the massage beds or chairs of a spa, relaxation should help me manage stress and balance work and family life. Day off, anyone? :)
