I have been hearing from my clients, friends, and fellow New Yorkers that the level of stress in the city is very high right now. The uncertainty of political events both in the US and globally is creating a lot of anxiety for people, and people are looking for better ways to deal with it.
Don’t forget about the basics:
- Eat healthy, get some exercise.
- Hug your loved ones.
- Feel your feet on the ground.
- Meditate if you can sit still long enough!
- Don’t watch or read upsetting news right before bed.
And of course, nothing is better than Esalen relaxation massage for a time-out from the crazy, with 90 minutes or more in a quiet oasis away from the world. In this time just for you, your only care is whether you prefer scented or unscented oil, and whether you want a light touch or a deeper stroke. There has never been a time when massage could be more beneficial than right now. It is amazing what a difference a few hours away from your everyday life can make.
You will return refreshed, with a new perspective, more energy, and a feeling of well-being that will carry over into all parts of your life, and even impact the people around you.
Be the pebble in the pond that helps everyone you know feel a little more able to deal with these troubled times.
