When is the last time you did something just for you, something that made you feel good? As women, we tend to put our needs last. Women – particularly mothers – are often the caregivers for their families. Yet it is easy to forget that we need to focus on ourselves, too.
Practicing self care makes people happier and more productive and gives them more energy.
Self care can take many forms. It can be physical activity, such as taking a walk or attending a fitness class. It could be something that relaxes you, like getting a massage or gardening. Or it could be engaging in a favorite hobby, like reading or cooking. It doesn’t matter what you choose, as long as you’re doing something you enjoy.
For some people, taking time for themselves can feel like a luxury. If you share that sentiment, why not ask for a gift certificate for an activity that relaxes you? I have several clients who say they would never have booked their first massage if they hadn’t received a gift certificate. Now they realize that self care is a necessity, not a luxury. And they not only continue to book massages, but they also purchase gift certificates so their friends and family can also experience the benefits of massage therapy.
With Mother’s Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time to introduce the mom in your life to the benefits of self care. It doesn’t get much easier than a gift certificate for a massage. It’s a one-size-fits-all gift that won’t end up in a landfill or rot in the fridge. And it’s the perfect gift for the woman who devoted so much of her life caring for you.
Take care of the moms in your life with a gift certificate for massage therapy. You can order them on my website or drop a hint with your husband or kids. Or simply treat yourself. You deserve it.
