a spa experience that was truly pampering
After snowmobiling at Sundance, Joe and I spent the afternoon at the Serenity Spa at our hotel, the Westgate Part City Resort & Spa, which was such a treat! Attending the Sundance film festival is far from a vacation. The movie schedules are crazy and shuffling to and from events in the snow during the overcrowded week is exhausting so a time out was much appreciated. This was the first time I felt truly relaxed at a spa in a very long time.
The Serenity Spa at the Westgate is beautiful. Typically when I try a new spa, I, like most New Yorkers, am in and out as quickly as possible, because I'm often running to a meeting before and after. Instead of taking advantage of the pampering spas provide, I typically look at getting a massage or facial as a necessary service to either clean out my pores or work on my body that's always so tight from working out. I guess you can say that the services more like errands than anything else.
This trip however, I actually unplugged for hours and enjoyed all of the amenities the spa had to offer before my massage. There was a co-ed hot tub, (which felt so good after snowmobiling), sauna and steam room and I allowed myself the luxury of time to take advantage of all three. When my masseuse asked about the pressure, I said (and probably for the first time), "I just want to relax." Normally, I always get deep tissue massages and find myself wincing in pain on the table thanks to all of my knots.
This afternoon reminded me that sometimes, I have to take a break from the hustle and bustle to just unwind. I left feeling relaxed with a clear head and happy heart.
Do you ever give yourself a real break? How so?
