While our on-site massage services are currently on hold, we’re working on new ways to provide services and products that would empower you to focus on your well-being in the comfort of your own home. Please stay tuned for our latest news.
With COVID-19, we haven’t experienced anything of this magnitude, so it’s hard to be mentally prepared for the pandemic, as it came so unexpectedly. While we navigate through these uncertain times, it can take a toll on all of us. Mental and physical wellness is now more important than ever.
Staying well during these times is very important; for you and your family. Here are a few ways to relieve stress and anxiety during these times:
Eat a healthy diet: Now that we’re at home more often and eating out less at restaurants, it’s a great time to eat healthier. Smaller portion sizes and being mindful of what you eat can help you take small steps to a healthier you. For more tips, read the healthy eating guide.
Meditation: This is a simple way to reduce stress and provide clarity to your mind. Here is an introductory video that is a great beginner’s guide to what it is and how it works.
Think Positively: Turn lemons into lemonade. You can either think negatively or think positive thoughts when dealing with a stressful situation. During the pandemic, we get to enjoy more time spent with family and have more time to do things we’ve been putting off doing for so long. Thinking more positive thoughts can make you feel happier and be more appreciative of the things you already have.
Get Outside: Whether it is a physical activity, garden, or going for a walk – being out in nature and getting active will reduce stress and raise your feel-good serotonin levels.
Aromatherapy: Aromatherapy is a treatment that uses natural plant essential oil – to promote health and well-being and is great for reducing stress, agitation, and anxiety.
Connecting at a distance: You can still connect with friends and family through a video chat, using free services like Zoom. Or head out for a walk – keeping six feet apart from others, of course!
We look forward to helping you reduce stress and relax once again at the office when it is safe to do so. When we do return to our regular on-site massage services, please be assured we will put strict measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety, as health and wellness are of the utmost importance to Soulful Indulgence’s philosophy.
Until then, be kind because it’s infectious! Stay positive and take care of yourself one another.
