The Zen Den #SpaWeekGossip Recap – Ways to DeCompress

26 Aug

The Zen Den opened with a bunch of stressed hot messes . . . The source? Cars, school, houses, work and traffic were calamities most contended with.
But @SpaWeek deigned @asmithonline the Queen of Chaos & bestowed a $50 Spa Week gift card upon her!

Ready to relax, we chilled with some of our fave spa soothers – which most of us prefer to enjoy in solitude. Massage, pedicures, reiki, reflexology & mudwraps literally and figuratively cool us off! Especially if they involve mint. All available during Spa Week for $50.

Another key to relieving stress? REM inducing sleep!. See this story from @SpaWeek here. Some spa ways to get it? Chamomile mist, lavender, music, tuning out tech, @SpaCat , wine and Spatinis

At the end of a calamitous day our homes become havens when they include bubble baths, DIY facials, Snuggies and robes like these stylish de-stressors Tune out tunes? Check out Dreamweaver

@SpaWeek helped us #SignOff from the tech we’re tethered to w/ counted breathing, set tech times & schedules. Blackberries under the pillow a no no!

Art of the Spa premiered the #SpaHome secret weapon to creating calming casas: personal peace palaces called Me Nooks

Some partygoers prefer to escape the house and shop, hang out with girlfriends, go to the bookstore and walk. Even the beach – our ultimate escape – is only a click away. Respite rites you can do anywhere include visualization, laughing and breathing slowly.

Now, a bunch of blissed out buddha-nistas – The Zen Den closed..

Still frazzled? No worries The Zen Den will open for business again soon, in the meantime. . . you’ll always have this recap!
