Happy Thanksgiving everyone! What are you giving thanks for this year? I’m thankful for my husband, my kids, my close friends, my job that I love, and my blog and all our readers!! I am NOT thankful for this round of flu that is going to have us put off our turkey dinner until Saturday! My husband is out of town, and I’m recovering while my youngest is just getting started. 2/3 down = postponed Thanksgiving dinner.
I almost knew that I was going to get sick even before I got that first sniffle. I push myself very, very hard. I work over 50 hours a week at my job, and the kids have SO many activities. Plus, I have traveled a TON lately and I could feel my body start to shut down from exhaustion and stress. My body works HARD. And honestly, I treat it like crap. Trips to the gyms are not as often as they should be, and more often than not I wake up sore at 1 am when I’ve passed out from exhaustion on the couch. Honestly, I know it’s not going to be manageable at this level forever.
Massage Envy’s newest campaign “Because”, is out to help those of us who put ourselves last to rethink…check out this video…
I DEFINITELY have a TON of “Because” moments every week, and I pretty much don’t do anything to help get rid of that stress! Massage Envy believes that total body care is integral to wellness, and wants to help us achieve that! By giving us time to check in with our bodies and relax, massage can help us manage every-day stress and pain. Treating our bodies well shouldn’t be a luxury – it should be part of creating a healthier life and improving our well-being too! Us parents work hard – and it’s important to take time for ourselves to unwind and refresh, and if you’re home is anything like mine, that’s the first thing to go when schedules get busy.
I’m definitely going to be checking out Massage Envy’s membership plan… I have so many “Because” moments they are hard to count these days, and I definitely need to manage my stress better. You should to – I’m sure you have your OWN “Because” moments! Take time for yourself and visit Massage Envy! You can also check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
