Working On Stress Management With A Spa Day

superadmin - 10th July 2014

As we go through life we get caught up in so many daily activities that we forget to work on our stress management in order to help our bodies and live a healthier life. Remember to take care of yourself so that you are able to take care of others. This is wise advice that instinctively we all know to be correct, but that women often have a great deal of difficulty following.

This past week I was visiting with such a guest who was having a spa day at the resort. Half of our guests visit Lake Austin Spa Resort for fun and relaxation, to celebrate with a friend or to just get away.  The other half by my estimate, come because they need to work on stress management while dealing with unfathomable life challenges. Whether it is divorce, death, illness, job or career change, parenting or something else, I am often overcome when speaking with these guests about the challenges they endure. I found myself face to face this week with an incredibly brave woman who told me of the difficulties she has been dealing with for the past several years. I was struck by her words, her strength, and her positive outlook in the face of immeasurable struggles. When I asked her how she found us, she simply told me that she had several friends that told her she had to put her own oxygen mask on if she was going to make it another day. I was truly honored and humbled that she had chosen Lake Austin Spa Resort for a much needed spa day and for putting stress management to the test.

It is in times like these that I am reminded that the Lake Austin Spa Resort community, with its nature, the peace and quiet, the staff and guests, can be so healing. A spa day can lift all of the stress and the negativity away and leave room for renewal and a happier outlook. I left this guest with a hug and a smile and an offer to do all I could to make her stay enjoyable and relaxing. It seemed so small in light of the burden she carries each day, but I also left that conversation with the resolve to write this note to remind myself as well as each one of you to blow away those things that are pushing you down and focus on stress management every day or with a spa day.
