Keri Glassman's Nutritious Life Tip: Pamper Thyself with Refresh Body
July 30, 2012 | Style & Beauty
Every other week on Hamptons-Magazine.com, I’ll focus on one pillar of a Nutritious Life, and give you a Nutritious Life Tip (NLT) Hamptons-style. Last time was all about Stress-Less Hostessing, now we’ll focus on how to Stress Less...especially when hostessing a party.
Pamper Thyself: Pampering yourself isn’t just about escaping the world and having fun. There are actually many mental and physical benefits from a day at the spa. Giving your body time for rest and recovery from a hectic and busy schedule doesn’t just leave you feeling super-charged and ready to take on the world—it also truly makes you healthier! Studies show it can improve mood, allow for better concentration, and even lower blood pressure.
Even little things, like a mani/pedi or taking time for a five-minute face mask allow you to reap the benefits. Despite the importance of some quality R&R, people often feel “guilty” about taking the time. Research shows we are one of the top “vacation-deprived” countries and 70% of Americans don’t use all of their vacation time. Get on it! Schedule in some YOU down-time NOW! Out of the 1,440 minutes in your day, you can take a few to spend solely on yourself.
NLT Hamptons-Style: If you're still using the excuse that you’re too busy to fit in some pampering time, excuses be gone! Available in the Hamptons (from Westhampton to Amagansett), as well as NYC, Refresh Body brings you all your favorite elements of the spa, right to your front door. They make it possible to get a massage after a long beach day and test your flexibility with a yoga class; all in your very own home.
Refresh Body’s services are available from 9 AM-10 PM and booking can even be done the same day. Sore from surfing or playing beach volleyball? Schedule a massage on your way home. New girls’ night activity? Try a group yoga class in your living room. It truly is the perfect service to pamper yourself. 212-242-4379
