His Eyes were glazed over!

I so wish I had taken a photo to show you. He (my husband) WAS back to the SPA.

Working seven days a week and not allowing much ME time, I insisted my husband join me for SPA week last week at the Ponte Vedra Inn SPA in sunny Florida.

We arrived around noon time for check in bathing suit in hand and ready to escape. I booked an appt. for an Old World Exfoliating body treatment to slough off dead skin cells , detox and moisturize to  shed away his stress. I WANTED my sweetie back. The nice guy whose on a life high… Not Mr.Tension!

The guy who helps Santa every year! 

After you are welcomed back to PARADISE by the spa receptionists and locker room attendants. (Though we were 45 minutes from our home.) We felt we had landed on a private Island. We got undressed into their cozy spa robes and slippers. 

This spa is awesome and breathtaking. It’s design and layout makes you succumb to RELAX and be taken away for the day. He rejuvenated in the whirlpool, steam room and sauna. “Good Bye to toxins and Hello sweat”. He melted like the witch from the Wizard of OZ !

He drank, Spa water, ate fresh red apples and relaxed beside the pool.He swam his laps and enjoyed a cool afternoon in the sun. It was a gorgeous day!

Later, he joined me for a late lunch in the spa lounge cafe.  The menu was delightful and delicious as usual.

He had the salmon cooked to perfection. I had a unique salad with watermelon, chick peas and lathered in lovely dressing greens. Endless sparkling water was served along with a yummy roll.

He came out glazed eyes,starry-eyed and…  he was Prince Charming again.

THANKS  to Ponte Vedra Spa and INN you did it again. Can’t wait to go back…we  feel awesome and still are daydreaming about our time in the sun and at your spa.

This time to partake of the spa and all its amenities BEFORE the holiday rush and to buy gift certificates! If you come to sunny Florida or are passing through over the holidays or early next year. Discover this beautiful place. A real spa! A gorgeous SPA  boutique AND services to relax and delight your senses.

Love yourself, take care of yourself…if you don’t , WHO will?

You must address your stress!

The weather outside is delightful but stress is kinda frightful.

As a business owner I have no time to spare and write  in my blog. I am like you trying to get it all done and my  work done. Since I too am stressed I had to share with you a few ways that help make my exhausted mood  too.

Always eat a good breakfast ! Drinking coffee or tea simply won’t do. You must nourish your body, to do everything you want it to do that day.

Keep hydrated. Drink lots of water.

I am not a doctor nor to I pretend to be one. However, I found a product from Bee-Alive that helps you under stress and has a unique blend of mood balancers. It’s called Rhodiola Plus.which really is a mood enhancer, mental & physical stress support. If you have questions consult your doctor for his input before using.

Snack on some fruit or crunchy veggies during the day. NOT cupcakes and chips.

Sprinkle the sheets and pillow cases with lavender baby body powder. Its soft scented and is very relaxing  and helps you rest better.

Take a warm bath in epsom salts after a long, hard day. Epsom salts do wonders for your muscles and you can soak those cares of the day away.They cost a dollar and will give you over 6 baths.

If  you have time to spare book a mini massage at the mall they have a relaxation station.Or go to a chain or your fav’ massage therapist. Massage works and the results stay with you for hours and hours.

Try a soothing  body lotion or hand cream. Soften  your skin with a scent that makes you HAPPY!  Wrap yourself in bliss…I love and do use this it is a mood adjuster for sure.

Chamomile  TEA drink some warm and cozy up in your bed or fav’ chair and read a book or write a letter or Christmas cards. It tastes exotic and you may add a dash of Agave nectar for sweetness. No milk nor cream please.

Listen to pretty music. David Young’s Bliss rocks my room and life with delightful soothing music.

I hope these tips will help you like they do me.

CHILL out and enjoy the reason for the season.
