It’s another week, and you are ready to be at your most productive. However, even though you cannot clearly point out why, you feel a bit different. Did you know that chronic stress is also known as the silent killer? Little by little you build up your stress level throughout the day and without you realizing it you are filling up your stress bucket. The right kind of massage can help you relieve some of that stress and can help you reverse some of the negative side effects of chronic stress in your body.
Here are the top 5 signs you need a massage this week:
1. Everything seems to irritate you
One of the most common side effects of being chronically stressed out is the fact that even small things that would normally be perceived as insignificant tend to bother you.
2. You feel like you are carrying a backpack full of rocks
People experience stress-related tension in different parts of the body. The vast majority of people will tend to accumulate tension in the upper and middle back area.
3. You do not feel romantic (and it’s been a while)
When you are stressed out on a daily basis, it is hard to keep the flame going.
4. You are gaining weight!
Cortisol, the main stress hormone, makes you gain weight very fast. The higher the levels of chronic stress you experience, the more cortisol your body will produce and the more weight you will gain.
5. You have trouble sleeping
Chronic stress can significantly affect your sleep patterns. The higher levels of stress you are experiencing, the more difficult it will be to have a consistent good night’s sleep.
Having a regular massage session by an experienced professional can help you release tension and relax. Give yourself a few minutes of wellness this week and discover the many benefits of a relaxing massage at Spa La Posada.
For spring 2012 designers are inspired by diverse influences, showcasing a range of styles and lifestyles, from free and playful and light and breezy, to contemporary classics. Colors likewise reflect these differing moods, encapsulating vivid brights, soft muted tones and fun-loving pastels.
“Consumers look to spring for renewed energy, optimism and the promise of a brighter day,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “They have learned how color can help them alter a mood and provide the vitality and enthusiasm that enables them to experiment with new looks and color combinations.”
Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone’s outlook this spring. Providing a jolt of energy, Solar Power radiates warmth and cheer.
Fanciful Bellflower, a distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity. Scintillating and sexy, Cabaret is a sensual and intense rosy-red — an excellent choice for summer clothing and cosmetics.
Sodalite Blue, a classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. Like an anchor to a ship, this dependable shade works with every color in the palette. Cockatoo, a tactile blue-green, is sure to make your spirits soar. This unusual hue adds a whimsical touch to the palette and will surely make a statement this spring.
Margarita, a piquant yellow-green, lifts spirits with its refreshing and stimulating glow. Reminiscent of a blossoming garden on an early spring morning, fragrant Sweet Lilac evokes the fresh scents of summer. This delicate pinkish lilac adds a touch of romance to any wardrobe.
Natural versatile neutrals add practicality to this season’s brights. Driftwood, an adaptable blend of beige and gray with a slightly weathered feel, and Starfish, a perfect warm summer neutral, complement all colors featured in this season’s top 10.
For an ultra-bold vibrant look this spring, try mixing Bellflower with Tangerine Tango and Cabaret. Combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Cockatoo for a subtle alternative, or combine Margarita with Sweet Lilac and Driftwood for a more practical variation. Solar Power is best juxtaposed with Sodalite Blue. For a safer bet, add a natural neutral like Starfish to the mix.
For over 18 years, Pantone, the global authority on color, has surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season’s most important color trends. This report previews the most prominent hues for spring 2012.
