We’re Putting A “Spring” In Your Step!mellisa
WE ARE ABOUT TO PUT SOME ‘SPRING’ IN YOUR STEP
What a stunning time of the year when everything seems to change around us, and nature promises new life and hope.
Nature has a way of responding after the long dark Winter months. The days get longer, the nights get shorter and literally, Spring is a breath of fresh air.
It is as though we are being rewarded for being so patient, waiting for the bird song and the imminent display of beautiful flowers which are about to burst into colour.
So what better way than to spend some healthy outdoor time with your family?
TAKE A WALK ON THE ‘WILD SIDE’
Spending time in nature is an ideal way to escape the madness of everyday life and the outdoors has an amazingly positive influence on both adults and children alike. Research shows that outdoor activities reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety and obesity.
YOU OWE IT TO THEM
In general, children tend nowadays to spend a lot less time outdoors. This can affect overall health and the child’s wellbeing.
Being outside in natural surroundings also stimulates creativity and avoids what is known as nature-deficit disorder, a term used to describe alienation of humans from nature.
Interestingly, there is an older study which showed that the view from a hospital window when looking at nature (trees, gardens, etc), helps patients recover quicker than if they were looking at a bland brick wall.
NOW THAT OUR HEALTH IS SORTED, IT’S NITTY GRITTY TIME
Now Ladies, we need a serious talk! We all know, use and understand the happy-go-lucky phrase:
“Oh, but it has been so cold, and I have been in hibernation. I haven’t shaved my legs because I wanted the hair long enough to wax, and I didn’t bother about blades for underarms because I wear long sleeves in Winter, blah blah blah”!
It’s time. No more excuses. Let’s get down to it.
HAIR – THE ‘WANTED’ KIND
It goes without saying that your hair should always be clean and well-conditioned. Hairstyles should always suit the shape of your face and you should always use a decent brush which does not break your hair.
Go on! Be bold and make a change. We dare you!
HAIR – THE ‘UNWANTED’ KIND
Unwanted hair on hands, legs, underarms and other body parts should be regularly removed. Remember the ‘hibernation’ season is over now.
Remember those eyebrows that also need shaping and facial hair which may need a wax or thread.
This may sound like a bit of a mission, but Mommy Wellness has it under wraps!
Have a look at the options that we offer!
There is nothing better than a healthy, glowing skin. Layers of makeup is just not going to cut it!
Besides drinking lots of water and having a regular intake of fruit and veggies, your skin needs good care.
Gentle cleansing, good moisturising and a strong sunscreen with a minimum 25 SPF is just not negotiable.
Do not rule out a good facial.
It does wonders and Mommy Wellness will advise the facial that will suit your skin type.
HANDS AND FEET
Very important and highly visible!
Hands and nails should always be immaculately clean and nails well-manicured.
Feet for some strange reason are often overlooked. A good pedicure every two to four weeks will keep your feet healthy, clean and pretty!
Cracked heels are an absolute no-no and a real turnoff. A good foot cream should be applied after a relaxing foot massage.

AND JUST WHEN THE GUYS THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO GO INTO THE WATER
There is no escaping
It maybe by popular belief, but it is not necessarily true that rough, rugged and ready males are real men. Times have changed and men have started taking personal grooming very seriously, and for good reason.
That charming car mechanic no longer has any excuse to have greasy hands, dirty finger- nails and a rough skin, just because he is a mechanic! Those days have hopefully come and gone forever!
Mommy Wellness has amazing packages for guys! There is nothing sexier than a well-groomed man!
Call us and choose your pamper package!
IT’S SEPTEMBER! DON’T FORGET SECRETARY’S DAY!
This year we celebrate Secretary’s Day on 5th September.
Although never on the same date every year, it always takes place during the first week of September.
Instead of the usual flowers or choccies, why not do something different this year?
Spoil that lady who manages your diary, reminds you of your Wedding Anniversary and of those special Birthday occasions (keeping you out of lots of trouble, just saying). She is totally worth it!
Mommy Wellness will suggest the perfect pamper package to relieve her aching computer neck and back pain, or even suggest a luxurious manicure or pedicure.
We promise to return her as good as the day she started!
