Looking Forward to Spa Days
You could probably use a stress-relieving massage at Chicago’s Spa Space more than ever these days! But with Covid-19 continuing to dominate the headlines every day, there are still no spa massages in Chicago, and no facials, either. But you can definitely look forward to scheduling a massage at Chicago’s premier day spa – and, as it turns out, having something to look forward may be the next best thing.
As the pandemic continues to bring hardship and suffering to so many in Chicago, it’s easy to get depressed. Feeling blue is totally understandable, but that doesn’t mean you have to give in to it.
Having something to look forward is one of many tools you can use to fight the blues.
The Benefits of Having Something to Look Forward To
You might not be able to look forward to a fabulous Chicago spa day, but there are things you can look forward to. And it’s important to make sure that you always have some of those things on your calendar.
Atlanta therapist LeNaya Smith Crawford knows that meditation and mindfulness are powerful tools with lots of benefits. “However, during particularly stressful moments in time, like our current pandemic, it can be more beneficial to have something to look forward to,” she told the HuffPost.
The benefits include:
- Having something to look forward to on your schedule gives you a reason to be optimistic about the future. “These days, you may have to come up with smaller treats to look forward to in the immediate future. Instead of the concert you were hoping to attend later this summer, think about the tie-dye kit that’s getting delivered tomorrow,” Kelsey Borresen posted on HuffPost recently.
- “Anticipation implies a future reward, and rewards are powerful motivators,” Smith Crawford told HuffPost. “Anticipation also creates discipline,” she said. “It helps with delayed gratification. This teaches us that if we can be patient, a greater experience — or reward — is upon us.”
Here at Spa Space, one of the most innovative day spas in Chicago, we definitely have something to look forward to in mind – seeing you again soon!
