All this back to school talk already has me in a tizzy and it’s not even started yet. However, when the schedule begins to weight on you, your breathing starts to turn into panting, and you feel like it’s a mad sprint everyday just to get the basics done – it’s time to take a time out. And breathe. And Exhale.
While sleeping probably sounds like the right plan, it’s actually a little mix of R&R with a twist of exercise that can get you on the road to restoration. A recent moment of OMG had me stop in my tracks and take a trip to Exhale Spa at The Highland in Dallas.
Tucked away in the busy, upscale hotel (where you’ll also find John Tesar’s Knife), you can escape all the mess with several options to just get away (even if only a few hours.) And surprise – just because it caters to visitors, you can definitely find a home at this place!
My day started off with one of the most amazing yoga classes I’ve ever taken (and yes, I’ve taken a lot.) Not only did I feel like I should be in the middle of India, we worked through postures and a small dab of meditation that brought me back to my center space and stretched some things that I forgot I had. Thank you, Kristen for that Power Yoga class! (Believe me, you should dust off your well-being even if you don’t have time to do the living room table.) However, if you don’t feel inclined to downward dog, you can hit the barre!
Only seconds after the class feeling about 10 years younger and my brain actually caught up with the rest of me, I shimmied to a fantastic brightening facial with a technician that I should share her name with you, but I choose not to so I can still get into to see her! She not only got my skin back in shape, but gave me the rundown of all the things I should be doing to keep me feeling like I’m in my 30s and not looking like I’m twice my age. Remember, taking care of your skin isn’t something you should think about…it’s something you should be doing every day.
Afterwards, a little time at the pool gave me the perfect trifecta to make my day (and my well being) complete. And that was only three hours!
Do yourself a favor and make sure to open that agenda and make time for yourself now. Not after you already needed it six months ago. Your body (and your family) will be shouting namaste with you.
