Stress is inevitable. In fact, according to a 2018 study conducted by CNN Philippines, things we encounter on a daily basis cause it – bosses, deadlines, schedule, colleagues, and traffic, just to name a few.
But while stress is clearly unavoidable, letting it affect your health isn’t. Remember, your mind and body are inherently linked. When stress starts to feel like it’s taking over your life, you have to try to do something about it before it ultimately wreaks havoc to your body. And while getting rid of all the things that stress you out isn’t easy, taking time out for yourself is.
Before everything gets too overwhelming, make time for some me- time.
The ultimate way to relieve stress is simply taking the time to pamper yourself. Set aside a few moments out of the day to be alone with your thoughts as you indulge in a few moments of luxury and relaxation. Even for just a few hours, this takes you away from the worries of work, traffic and deadlines.
And as #NationalPamperingDay near, be sure to head over to Nailaholics.
This year, you have the option to choose from a dedicated menu of #NationalPamperingDay services: a manicure, hand spa, hand massage, foot spa, or foot massage. You can avail of any of these services for just P 10 on October 17 from 10am to 2pm – the amount of which will go to Nailaholics’ community partner, the La Verna Aged Care and Dementia Village.
It may seem hard to believe that such a small shift in thinking and habits could make a world of difference for your health and psyche. But give it a try and see just what a little pampering can do for you.
