Is your New Year resolution to take better care of yourself?

Is your New Year resolution to take better care of yourself?

We all know the routine. For some, it’s become a tradition. Before the ball drops in Times Square, most of us have made our New Year’s resolutions. In some cases, we may have even broken the new resolutions that we’ve just made.

Every holiday season, as we indulge (and overindulge) in holiday treats, we promise ourselves that once the New Year arrives, we’ll take better care of ourselves, in every way. That means a new outlook in regards to our bodies, minds and spirits.

The reasons behind these resolutions vary from person to person, but usually, they are a reaction to the differing stresses that play such a major part in our daily lives.

Job stress, family issues and other outside factors can contribute to pain and stress in daily life. The New Year often serves as the motivation we need to get in shape and learn to cope.  According to recent statistics, many Americans are making massage one of their top New Year’s resolutions.

A majority of Americans said they experienced more stress this past year than in previous years, and that they’re looking for new ways to deal with that increased stress with methods including massage therapy. In fact, about 75 percent of Americans each year say that their New Year’s resolution is to focus on taking better care of themselves and achieving a more complete work/life balance.

Massage is an effective way to relieve stress and a great way to relax as compared to other methods such as drinking a glass of wine or another alcoholic beverage or even exercising.

Relaxation is very important to health and wellness, and massage can be very relaxing. Regular massage therapy is an important part of overall physical health and well-being.

Massage is a significant component to achieving overall health, wellness and relaxation. Massage therapy helps to improve circulation, alleviate tension and contribute to a more comfortable and stress-free lifestyle.
