The Importance Of Self-Care This Winter

The Importance Of Self-Care This Winter

  • December 10, 2018

Winter is upon us. The holiday season is here, it’s sweater weather, the ski hills are open, and hot chocolate is an appropriate beverage choice at any hour of the day. While there is much to look forward to throughout the snow-filled months, it’s also a busy and somewhat difficult time of year.

The Winter Blues

The fatigue that shows up around the same time as the snow is directly related to the changes in seasons, as many of us sense a drop in our energy levels and mood. Self-care is important year-round, but the colder and shorter days of winter present a different set of challenges to overcome. There are various things to do in preparation for the winter season, the holidays, and the new year. From changing your car tires to looking up turkey recipes, reading wish lists to Santa to making your own list of resolutions, we find ourselves with very full plates.

The Gift Of Wellness

We are so concerned with everyone and everything else this time of year, we tend to forget about ourselves. Our mental and physical health become less of a priority when we get busy with the daily grind of our everyday schedules, but we shouldn’t feel guilty taking time for ourselves this, or any other, time of year. It is a giving season after all, why not give yourself the gift of wellness? Whether that means learning a new winter sport, reconnecting with nature, cozying up with a good book, or going to the spa.

The spa experience at Thermëa offers respite, a relaxing getaway, and a break from your routine. It’s like taking a vacation, without having to travel a far distance or worry about packing.
