Tips and Exercises to De-Stress and Relax

Relaxing on the beach on FlickrMany women spend thousands of dollars to maintain their beauty. Whether it's botox or plastic surgery, or something exotic like neck liposuction, they feel the need for a quick fix to their beauty issues. I'm not here to judge women who do use plastic surgery as part of their beauty ritual. I just want to share my thoughts on healthier, more natural ways to maintain your beauty. That's what this blog is all about and that's what I like to focus on. In this post, I want to share some tips on how to de-stress and relax.

Especially now with the holidays here, everyone is running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to shop for holiday gifts. And let's not forget the stress from work with end-of-the-year projects and holiday parties to plan for. If relatives and in-laws are coming in town to visit, that can add even more stress to your life!

I know people who are addicted to stress...and it's not a good thing. According to an article published at the Washington Post, there is a link between stress and aging.

I think it's important to give yourself the gift of relaxation this holiday season! One of my favorite places to go when I want to de-stress and relax is the spa. Oh, and the beach is a great place to kick back too ;)

I found out that Rue La La is offering a few spa getaway packages:
  • The Holistic Spa Boutique features four luxurious destinations - The Four Seasons in Boston, The Omphoy Ocean Resort in Palm Beach, Hotel Palomar in Texas, and the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica. Packages include hotel accommodations, two exhale fitness classes and massage sessions.
  • Exhale Mind Body Spa Retreat Boutique includes an ocean front resort with meals, fusion massages, and certified yoga classes. The retreat dates and themes are available include: January - Resolution: Transformation, February - Restore, Reenergize + Recommit, March - Yoga Spa Revival and April - Core Fusion Bootcamp.
Do you have any tips to de-stress?

  1. I wish I could just have one day where I do not have to worry about work and money and that I just have to relax and maybe sleep for the whole day while getting a massage and everything that spells "pamper".
