Motherhood is known to be both a rewarding and a tiring job (with the emphasis on tiring). It can sometimes be all consuming and leave you feeling like you’ve lost a little part of yourself. It’s times like these that you need a break. A chance to recharge, refresh and get your glow back.
If you’ve got any friends who are mothers, chances are, they’re feeling the same. Reach out to them and see if they feel that a short getaway would make them feel better. Hint: it almost certainly will. Once you’ve got a group together, you can start looking for the perfect spa break. You can browse through loads of amazing looking spa breaks with Voyage Privé before you pick the best one for your group.
Reasons to book a spa break NOW!
In case you need any more convincing, I’ve compiled a list of excellent reasons why you probably need a spa break right now.
A child-free break can soothe the soul
As much as you love your children, sometimes you just need a night off. Being responsible for the general wellbeing of another person (or several other little people) can be draining. Taking a night or two away and making yourself a priority will provide a well-deserved rest.
A spa break is perfect for this kind of self-care, because you’ll have plenty of time to unwind. You’ll even have a comfy bed to get a good night’s sleep in – you’ve probably got a lot of catching up to do.
An uninterrupted rest followed by a lie-in will help give your body the boost it needs. Even if your children have been sleeping through for a little while, the freedom of waking up naturally over being rudely awoken by a school-day alarm or a little person will leave you feeling well-rested and fresh.
Ease those aches
Be sure to book in a full body massage during your stay to ease those aching muscles. Parenting a little one can be a tense time, you’re constantly on the move and are often used as a climbing frame. Your muscles can become tired really easily and before you know it, they’re in need of some TLC.
To keep those muscles relaxed, go for a gentle swim. Float on your back, visit the steam room and kick back in the hot tub. Water can make you feel weightless so enjoy it while you can , before you’re needed back in the real world.
Time with friends will help you find yourself
Once you become a parent, it’s more difficult to get time to do the things you did before having children. Spending time with your friends can help you feel more like yourself and less like just someone’s mum.
Reminisce over the good times, listen to the music you liked before you stopped following the charts and enjoy feeling like a person in your own right again.
Refresh your skin and discover new products
Book a facial and a body exfoliating treatment to brighten your skin. We can all feel a bit dull when we’re tired and run down. Get dead skin cells buffed off and an all-over moisturising treatment to revive tired skin and brighten your body.
Our skincare routine can fall by the wayside when the kids come along. Having a facial means you can ask an expert about what your skin needs. They’ll usually introduce you to new products and you can often purchase the ones you love when your facial is done. Skin changes with age, so what might have been oily in your early twenties, might have switched to combination or dehydrated skin as you get older. Coming home with a new skincare routine can help prolong that refreshed feeling long after you’ve left the spa.
