And relax… 3 reasons to put your feet up and enjoy a pamper this springtime

With the hustle and bustle of every-day life, sometimes we just need a little rest and relaxation to recharge the batteries.

Now that we’re into April and Christmas is four months behind us, we think early spring is the perfect time to put your feet up and dedicate some time for a little bit of TLC. Here’s why…

1. Warmer weather means a wardrobe refresh

As we move into seasons, we’ll be packing away those big cosy jumpers, warm trousers, toasty socks and big boots. We’ll be swapping our wardrobes for the milder weather, and this means shorter sleeves and summer dresses. The perfect accessory to this is a glowing tan, and with so many fantastic options available, you can enjoy having bronzed skin without the risks of sunbathing. The best way to get your skin prepped to perfection for either a spray tan or a self-tan is to exfoliate and moisturise. The Lakeside Hotel & Spa in Windermere offers an Aveda signature body treatment, with different options including a body polish, back treatment and body wrap, take a look here. While you’re there, you could also indulge in a manicure and pedicure thanks to the spa’s fabulous hand and foot treatments - then you’ll be ready to slip into those open-toe summer sandals.

2. The new year enthusiasm of going to the gym might be wavering

Everyone knows what a challenge it can be to keep up that classic new year’s resolution of moving more and eating less. Especially when it’s four months in and the post-Christmas enthusiasm after all the festive decadence might have slipped. But there are a number of superb gym facilities that you can enjoy during a spa getaway. For example, Armathwaite Hall has amazing spa and gym facilities, including: 16m infinity edge pool,1.2m deep and overlooking beautiful gardens. Wallow pool ideal for those not so confident in water 1m deep. Dance/exercise studio, from circuits to Yoga to relaxation - there’s something for everyone.

State of the art gymnasium with life fitness elevation series and USB work out memory.
Personal training, fitness assessments and MOT health indicator tests.

3. And our final reason… because sometimes you just need a little ‘me’ time.

We all lead busy lifestyles, and taking some time for a bit of rest and relaxation is quite often exactly what’s needed after a busy period, either at work or in our personal lives. Sometimes just setting aside a day to indulge ourselves can do the world of good. And bidding farewell to the stresses of everyday life is even better when you can do it with a massage. At The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa, the expert team of therapists there create each signature treatment blend individually for each guest. This is because it is believed that each massage should be unique to the person and their needs. Their signature treatments range from a Swedish back, neck and shoulder massage (£35 for 25 minutes) to a hot stones full body massage (£75 for 85 minutes), with plenty of options in-between.
