2023 Self-Care Massages!
2023: A Year for More Self-Care
Well, if you're anything like me, you're probably feeling super pumped for the new year and ready to tackle all of your self care goals with gusto.Start the year off right with the annual self-care goals like picking things up and putting them back down, again and again... Sitting in silence and trying really hard not to think about stuff, eating more shrubs and leaves, hobbies like frolicking... the options are endless!
Okay, but honestly, is there a better way to kick off the year than with an amazing massage?
I mean, seriously, who doesn't love a good massage? It's the perfect way to reduce stress, improve circulation, and increase flexibility (which let's be real, we could all use a little more of). Plus, massages can help alleviate those pesky muscle aches and promote relaxation and overall well-being. Can't beat that!
But wait, there's more!
Not only are there tons of different types of massages to choose from (Swedish, deep tissue, sports, shiatsu, the list goes on), but you can also make massage a regular part of your self care routine. Just set aside some dedicated "me time" and schedule a massage once a month, or even once a week if you're feeling the need to really connect to your body and start to reset the defaults. You may also want to consider setting up a standing appointment, like every other Tuesday, throughout the year so you don't have to think about it. It's like the gift that keeps on giving.
Massage is just one way to treat yourself well, let's not forget about all the other self care practices that can help you start the year off right, exercise, meditation, eating healthy foods, hobbies that fill our cups, and spending time with loved ones. Just remember to make self care massages a priority and you'll be off to a great start in the new year. Happy massaging!
