Stress is very dangerous, and dealing with it can be time-consuming. Though very few of us can afford to spend an hour a day meditating or doing yoga.

Whether you’ve got three young kids, or a demanding career, staying centred, healthy and stress-free can seem an impossible puzzle, but we’re here to give you our solution; spend those days you had planned for a weekend getaway in pure relaxation and recovery at a quality spa location instead.

The best spa centres know all about the different factors when it comes to decreasing stress in the body, from physically kneading out knots and tension in massage, to eating well and beautifying, a quality spa trip covers all the bases and will have you feeling calm and Zen in no time at all.

Quality Spa Breaks Can Help You Feel Healthier and Less Stressed

Why is Stress So Dangerous?

The big question: why is stress so dangerous? Why do we need to avoid it like the plague? Well, it can have a veritable catalogue of negative effects on the human body, mental, physical, short and long term, none of them good.

There’s a reason why heart disease and strokes are the biggest killers after cancer, and that’s stress (among other things). In the short-term, you’ve got insomnia, weight loss / gain (sadly tending to be the opposite of what you want), premature hair loss and greying, and a predilection to all sorts of issues.

But bear in mind that when it comes to stress, it’s not the short-term issues that are the problem. It’s the long-term ones.

Bear in mind that when it comes to stress, it’s not the short-term issues that are the problem. It’s the long-term ones.

Long Term Affects of Stress

Living under stress for long periods is spectacularly bad for you. It’s aging, increases risk of all manner of disease and conditions, and drastically increases your blood pressure.

That’s not even considering the mental health issues. Living long-term under dire stress can induce mental breakdowns and all kinds of problems. Remember, many mental health issues aren’t born of weakness, but of being too strong for too long.

That’s exactly why you need to start looking at treating your stress, and becoming a happier, more relaxed person. The best places to start are diet and exercise, as well as taking some time for yourself. Fortunately, a quality spa trip is all those things rolled into one, making it the perfect emergency treatment.

Why Spa Breaks?

Okay, so you want me to prove I’m not just flogging spa breaks, right? That’s fair enough. One of the biggest factors when it comes to dealing with stress is simply taking steps to deal with it, especially in the long-term.

A quality spa break gives you a chance to lean back, get some distance from your life, and experience a wide variety of healthy, relaxing treatments.

There’s theories out there that say that stress is cumulative, and can build over time. All the more reason to get out of the house, and get your stress and tension sorted. What can spas do for you?

Spas offer treatments and activities like saunas, massage, yoga, meditation, manicures and facial treatments. It’s about covering all the bases; exercise, stress, diet and beauty. Get those nailed down, you will feel better, calmer and happier.

Stress is very dangerous, but a quality spa trip covers all the bases and will have you feeling calm and Zen in no time at all.

  1. Haha, I knew that stress was bad – even evil! – but I didn’t know I needed a spa break to fix it!! Seriously though, I can see that a spa break IS a good way of starting the stress-fixing process – if nothing else it would break the pattern and re-program your mind set which in turn would make it easier to deal with the problem. I’ll start with a massage, thank you!!!

    • Haha a spa break is the answer to everything :D It really is a fantastic way to reprogram, and remove yourself from the bubble of problems we create in our everyday lives.

      Massage is my way of decompressing too :D!

  2. I study Neuroscience, so tonnnnns about stress! I always go to the spa on spring break to rest and recharge!

    • There’s definitely science to it! What an interesting field to study – I’ve always been fascinated by the human mind :)

  3. Your article is on point. Although Spas are pretty expensive here in Washington, DC, I try to scrape my pennies and go a few times a year. Life here can get too fast-paced and stressful .

    • Possibly the best value money can buy, is the chance to de-stress, re-program and just escape.

      Glad you enjoyed the post :)

  4. You’re completely right… I always feel SO much better after I’ve had a relaxing spa day. Sometimes it worth paying a little extra to make yourself feel better, especially when it comes to stress which can have so many effects on us.
    Get me to the spa right now!!!

    • Absolutely – a really great way to make sure you’re at the top of your game always :)

    • I’m glad we could encourage a spa break Ella – health first! Always :)

  6. I love the spa. Stress definitely is a killer or at the very least make you sick. I was just saying I could go for a nice massage. This is pushing me in the direction to do just that.

    • Stress can absolutely make you physically sick – it’s so important not to underestimate it, and to take care of our mental health. Glad we could push you towards a spa break :)

  7. Hi Meg,
    You are absolutely right. This word of yours “A quality spa break gives you a chance to lean back, get some distance from your life, and experience a wide variety of healthy, relaxing treatments.” is a universal truth.
