Sometimes you just need to take a time out.

Self care should find it’s way into your daily routine. When you’re devoting some time to yourself by nourishing your mind and body you are likely to become less stressed out overall.

Parenting is hard work and you deserve a chance to spoil yourself.

Don’t know where to start?

We put together a list of activities to help jumpstart your new and improved self care routine around the Westchester area.

Plan a trip to the big apple.

You can only pick up so many legos before you go crazy. You deserve a day with other adults. Get dolled up with your girlfriends and head to a lunch date in the big apple. Visit the MoMA or the Botanical Gardens for some visual stimulation and inspiration. After lunch, why not have dessert somewhere else? The world is your oyster and it’s YOUR day out.

Spa Day

Have you been dodging your reflection lately? Sounds like you need a trip to the spa for a refreshing facial. Angelface Day Spa has you covered with a huge list of services and packages that will leave you glowing from inside out. They offer a luxury half day and full day of pampering with their friendly and professional team of estheticians. If facials and massages aren’t your thing, why not book a fancy pedicure. You’re constantly keeping up with the kids and you deserve to kick back and be pampered for a change.

Have a Good Hair Day

Nothing feels more liberating than a fresh haircut and color. Book a trip to a salon like The Beauty Parlor in Dobbs Ferry to refresh your look. Who doesn’t feel more confident and beautiful when they get out of that salon chair?! Splurge for a full color or even try something new for refreshed new look. Visiting a fancy salon will give you that extra sprinkle of luxury and you can get some expert care for your neglected locks. The Beauty Parlour even offers treatments for tired, dull, dry or unmanageable hair.

Mani and Pedi

Whether you’re popping in for a solo retreat or a day out with friends, a mani-pedi is never a bad idea. The Red Door Salon and Spa at the Westchester is a modern luxury salon to restore those dainty digits of yours back to perfection. They feature high end foot baths and essential oil massages to relieve aches, pains and tension. You’ll have beach ready nails in the dead of winter and leave feeling like a million bucks. While you’re at the Westchester, why not browse around and give yourself a little retail therapy.

A little self care goes a long way.

Put some responsibilities on the back burner and focus on your emotional and physical rejuvenation. Self care should be an important part of your routine as a parent, it will help you manage stress and stay the confident beauty that you are!
