November is notorious for turkey, pie and Black Friday. Thanksgiving is always a good reminder to voice thankfulness every year. As we sit around a table filled with good food (did we mention pie?), and family and friends, please make sure those special people in your life know you’re thankful for them. After all, what is life without those who mean the most to us (and a little shopping for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday)?

Black Friday savings are BIG, so you’ll want to check out this month’s spa promotions before you do anything else! We’re excited to promote special savings, plus so much more! 

November is the gateway to the holidays, and it’s a season that can be very busy and stressful. Take time to relax, give yourself much-needed grace and visit us for a respite from the holiday madness. ’Tis the season to step-up self-care. Cheers!

We’re convinced there’s not one person on this earth who doesn’t love a long, hot shower to relax and rewind. A rain showerhead is one of the best investments you can make for your self-care. What makes it so different? Larger, softer droplets of water drench you in a luxurious, spa-like shower EVENT. Yep, we’re swooning over a showerhead over here!

This time of year can bring out stress in all of us, but it’s important to remember that celebrating the holidays should be joyful and fit YOUR ideal of celebration -- not anyone else’s. If that means saying no to hosting, or any or all the extra activities, then do it! Stick to what makes you and your family happy.

The holidays are notorious for weight gain woes. As soon as Thanksgiving arrives, it’s as though the universe is pointing us out like Uncle Sam: “We want YOU to eat this pie.” 

Okay, we’re being dramatic, but it takes incredible self-control to reach New Year’s without a few added pounds. We aren’t suggesting you abolish all the joy of holiday eating, because that’s unrealistic and no fun! Instead, use the following tips to strive for balance and moderation when you’re holiday party hopping.

 

Keep Healthy Habits During

The Week
Since the weekends during the holidays fill up fast with food-indulging frenzies, it helps to keep your diet and exercise routine during the week as normal as possible. If you want to add some pizzazz to your regular meals, use Pinterest or Google to find healthy meals that incorporate new spices, vegetables or ingredients you don’t usually use. This will help you feel that you aren’t missing out on indulgent meals. Also continue your weekday workout routine whenever possible. Fit in your healthy habits during the week so you can treat yourself on the weekend!

Only Eat The Foods You Love
This is a game of “Rate your Food!” Before filling your plate with everything in sight, take a moment to rate it on a scale of 1-10. Then, choose only those foods that you rated as favorites, in the 9 or 10 range. Healthy options, like fresh veggies, make the perfect way to balance out the other not-so-healthy food.

Avoid Going Back for Seconds
The goal is moderation, folks! Going back for seconds is a slippery slope to overeating and regret. If you want a taste of everything, take small sample-sized portions to save yourself from overindulging. Remember, if your body is not familiar with fried, greasy food or a lot of alcohol, it’s best to take it easy and avoid feeling sick or uncomfortable after the fact.

Sleep Is Sacred
Get eight hours or more each night and your body will function better. Sleep affects so many areas of your body and mind, including weight gain and eating habits. Did you know that the more sleep deprived you are, the more hunger hormones your body creates? Getting enough sleep also will help you avoid sickness during the holiday months, because no one has time to be sick!

Keep Stress Levels Low
Stress typically goes hand-in-hand with the holidays, but this year we challenge you to stay stress-free! This might mean adjusting your lifestyle and learning to say no when too many activities are stacking up. Whatever it means to you, go for it! Stress can increase cortisol levels which are directly related to weight gain, too. Less stress will help you stay healthier and in turn, you will keep the weight off!

These simple strategies lay a foundation for a healthier holiday season and a happier one, too! Happy and healthy is the name of the game!

Reserve a weight loss treatment or a body contouring treatment for the holiday season.

Boost Your Immune System Naturally This Winter

Image

Last year’s flu season was one of the worst in history. We are already dreading the increase in sickness here at the med spa. In preparation for the winter season, we thought you might like to join us in staying cold-free and flu-free, too!

1. Increase Your Fruits

And Vegetables
Healthy eating isn’t just beneficial for your weight. Many people aren’t aware of the benefits that foods have on your body and organs on the inside. For example, broccoli and other cruciferous veggies can help your liver function more efficiently. Avocados are helpful with adrenal function and hormone production. The saying, “you are what you eat,” is true in so many ways. Food can be extremely healing!

2. Take A Mushroom Supplement
We gushed about mushrooms a few months ago, and they top the immune-boosting list here again! If you aren’t a fan of eating mushrooms, or you just want to make it easy on yourself (guilty!), consider a mushroom supplement. If you only do one thing to boost your immune system this year, we dare say this should be the one.

3. Vitamin C For The Win
Vitamin C is great when you get it from the right sources! We aren’t suggesting three glasses of orange juice per day, because ... sugar. However, eating fruit and veggies high in vitamin C is a good option. Another option is taking a liquid liposomal vitamin C supplement, which absorbs into your system quickly and efficiently. If you have  a sensitive tummy, liposomal C is easily digested and causes no irritation to your gut.

 

4. Don’t Smoke
We don’t want to sound like your mother, but smoking is detrimental to your immune system. It’s also damaging to your health in so many other ways, but that’s an article for another day! Smoking also raises the risk of respiratory infections, including pneumonia. We know smoking is a difficult habit that’s hard to break, so consider reducing the amount you smoke ever so slightly each day. You’ll feel good knowing you’re making a change for the better!

5. Take A Daily Probiotic
Probiotics are a smart way to balance and improve your gut health, which is directly linked to immune functioning. There are so many probiotic brands out there, so it might be best to speak to your doctor about the best options.

6. Add Ginger to Your Diet
The health benefits of ginger feel a bit like a secret because they aren’t often talked about, but many tout it to be a superior addition to your diet. Ginger helps to detoxify your body and eliminate toxins within your organs. Who knew a little root could be so rad! Not sure how to add it to your diet? Ginger is delicious in tea and it can pep up meat, too.

Take your health into your own hands this winter! Implement these easy foods and lifestyle changes to boost your immune system and stay healthier. Let’s kick sickness to the curb, together!

Use this with your leftover turkey, or try deli slices, too.

It’s delish both ways!
