10% off Spabreaks.com bookings and vouchers for Blue Monday 2023
Beating the January blues is something we’ve all been trying to tackle for a long time. A month known for its dark weather, sad moods and hibernating post-Christmas. This year, Spabreaks.com is working to flip this stereotype on its head, turning Blue Monday into You Monday with 10% off all Spabreaks.com bookings and vouchers.
The current cost of living crisis is having a significant impact on mental health and wellbeing. According to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, 49% of therapists say their clients are cutting back on activities that benefit their mental health, such as gym and sports club memberships.
As we’re now having to decide more carefully what we choose to spend our money on, we want to make self-care more accessible for everyone this Blue Monday. Shaking off the traditional connotations of Blue Monday and turning it into a day for you, shedding light on the importance of looking after your mental health and wellbeing which is often heightened by the January blues.
Spa recommended ways to turn Blue Monday in You Monday
Aromatherapy for mental wellbeing
Aromatherapy can be used in a variety of ways, in skincare, in massages and treatments. It’s a great way to tackle the feelings that dark January days bring. Spa treatments are an easy way to incorporate the benefits of aromatherapy such as brightening and calming your mood.
Light therapy to improve wellbeing
Light therapy is a great substitute for the little sunlight we have access to in January. Lack of light leads to a lack of vitamin D which can begin to get us down.
Exercise to boost your mood
A great way to boost and balance your mood in January is through endorphins produced by exercise. Whether it’s a walk around spa gardens, a few laps in the pool or a power gym session, our selection of spas has something for everyone.
