I think I need a vacation. Early this morning, while on my Uber (use my code r0gtb for free credits by the way!) car going to domestic airport road, I was dreaming of the beach. Then my thoughts shifted to scheduling another spa session at Neo Day Spa. After a minute, it moved on to the next thought of having to clean up my files next week. After a minute, I thought about another thing, then another, then another. I need to stop.
I feel tired. When I answer messages on Facebook, I usually answer using voice messages already (which is a new thing that I love doing! It’s so convenient. You should try it!) since I always multi-task. What people don’t know is that I’m so busy that I answer their messages while crossing the street, while eating, while writing, etc. Haha!
I then thought of adding this little something to my blog. I will record some of my thoughts during the day. This is my first recording and pardon some mistakes in my grammar, because honestly, I think I was half asleep here.
I just listened to this now! Haha! Don’t you just find how weird your voice sounds when you record it? It seems like it’s so far from how you perceive it to be? Anyway, I’m digressing.
WE DESERVE A BREAK!
Yes, people! We deserve to take a break. It’s so weird that everything I feel sleepy in the afternoon, right after lunch, I just feel the need to text my husband and to ask him if it’s okay to sleep. Then he would obviously tell me that it is. I just realized it now that that’s the way I am. Deep inside I feel like I need to ask permission from someone… anyone if I plan to take breaks. Haha! That’s the thing about being your own boss. It feels awkward to take these little breaks that we actually deserve.
Last week, I had the most wonderful afternoon at Neo Day Spa. I had the most amazing massage… ever. We tried out Neo Day Spa’s Zen Spa package.
The Zen Spa Package was just the thing that I needed to destress after a whole month of intense working. The package is composed of a 60 minute body scrub of your choice and a 90 minute whole body massage. My husband and I occupied the couple’s room. I loved the look, feel and mood of the room. Upon entering, you would immediately see the the two massage beds. On the side, it had a sink that you can use with a mirror and a shower area that is at the corner of the room. The room is lit just right, mostly from natural light that comes in from the window. The temperature of the room is adjustable, so if you feel too cold or warm, you can easily have them adjust it.
For my scrub, I chose the young rice body scrub. This scrub is made from fragrant ground jasmine rice mixed with a velvety cream. This treatment helps remove dead skin by using the conditioning, soothing and softening properties of rice starch. My husband on the other hand chose the lemongrass option. He loved the smell of the scrub, although his scrub felt stickier than mine. Both achieved the results of having smoother and glowing skin.
After they scrubbed our bodies, we were wrapped in plastic for a few minutes and then we were given time to rinse it off in the shower.
For the next 90 minutes, we had our massage. It was the most relaxing experience I have ever had in almost three years. I haven’t had time to book a massage until this came along. Thank you to my friend Nikki from AskMeWhats.com who encouraged me and gave me this opportunity to pamper myself.
Lesson of the story is that we all deserve to take breaks! We shouldn’t feel that we don’t deserve it. I even love this advice from my idol, Timothy Ferriss, author of the 4-Hour Work Week, where he says that you should take mini-vacations if you can. We need to feel rewarded, even for just a bit or for a while, so that we won’t feel tired or so that we won’t feel that we’re missing all the fun. Life is fun! Let’s relax and take a break!
