Ahhhh vacation mode……That feeling of bliss, escape, and some R&R. The craving to escape weekly project deadlines, meetings, long commutes, or any other stressful situations makes me want to go on vacation and be in vacation mode. I dream of booking a vacation to a place that is different from my own. Sometimes booking a holiday to a different place isn’t always in the budget or the days aren’t always available. For times where I can’t go away and want the benefits of vacation mode at home, I think a good day spa does the trick
I’ve had the privilege of going to two day spas and boy are they lovely! As a result, I felt so calm,relaxed and wanted to stay because . It was a different world… I like to describe it as a bubble of bliss. The outside world and time didn’t matter, I could lounge around and be present.
Day spas have lounge seating where you could sit and relax. You can sip on some herbal teas, snacking on fruit, or reading a good book. I find its not necessary to bring a phone if you really want to disconnect from the outside world. I brought my phone with me to Instagram the moments (of course). But I never looked at my phone, it stayed in my pocket for most of my visit.
Also, it is a vacation like experience because the staff were so courteous and kind. They ensured that my experience was a pleasure. As I was walked throughout the facility, there was always a lovely staff member at every door way ready with a warm smile who was attentive to my needs and pointed me to refreshments, like fruit infused water.
The robe and slippers given by the spa reinforced the idea of escape. Like on vacation I wasn’t wearing clothes that I’d usually wear at home. I traded my jeans, sweater, and shoes for robes and slippers. Lockers are given to place personal items, so no need to worry or think about what you walked in with.
And how could I forget the massage! One of the main reasons to go to a day spa. I think the massage treatment sets the foundation for the vacation like experience. It gets the muscles relaxed and the body de-stressed. Overall, it instantly puts me into pamper mode and starts my spa day in the right direction. So I chose a massage treatment that is relevant to my physical discomfort.It’s important for me to choose wisely.
As a result, I want to help you find the perfect day spa so you can experience ‘vacation mode’ at home.
So here are a list of amenities to look for when choosing a spa:
If you don’t want to go solo, try visiting the spa with your significant other, close family members or friends, its perfect for reconnecting.
