How to Treat Yourself When Your Kids Go Back to School

 

When your kids head back to school, it can seem like the perfect opportunity to tackle your to-do list; having children at home for months tends to put the brakes on our personal projects and goals (or even just the laundry routine!). Before you leap back into full-on productive mode, consider taking a few hours off and heading to a local day spa instead. 

You’ve heard it a hundred times before, but it really is true: self-care is the only way to replenish our physical and emotional reserves. You can’t bring your A-game without taking time out to give yourself some TLC. Once you’ve found one of the following highly recommended spas in your area, book a mani/pedi, massage, facial, an appointment to update your hair, or all of the above; most of these spas can do it all.

Men, please don’t think this advice is just for the supermoms out there; these day spas will pamper you equally well, and we’ve noted the spas that specialize in treatments just for men – perfect for you hard-working dads.

Congratulations on making it to the start of another school year. Now please, treat yourself!
