SPRING HAS ARRIVED

Spring is officially here and I must say the winter was not all that bad.  I think it was because we had all our Canadian Snowbirds staying home for the winter and they brought us the warm weather.

What are you looking forward to this Spring? Sitting on a patio, going to the cottage, walks down by the lake or being able to gather with family and not freeze your tush off?

Put me down for all of the above.  When meeting a friend for a walk down by the lake on one of our warm days, I was amazed at all the people who you knew were family, (masked on) going for a walk together, it was so good to see. 

Bring on the HOT weather!!

Happy Easter Everyone.

IN THEIR EASTER BONNETS APRIL 5TH 2015

WE ARE FULLY REOPENNED – SUPPORT YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

WE ARE FULLY OPEN!

How has everyone been, have you felt that you have been under house arrest without the ankle monitor?

We are so grateful to be in a business that supports people’s Mental Health.

Our Mental Health wellbeing has been on everyone’s minds. We are not meant to be away from family, not to be able to hug people, not to be social, not to laugh together.   We are human beings; we need physical touch and social interaction to be healthy!

These are some of the things that I use to support my Mental Health.

  • Meditation – I use Insight Timer, a free App on my phone. It has free guided meditations; morning and night.
  • Journaling – in my 5 Minute Journal purchased from Amazon: morning and night
  • Deep breathing when things feel like they are closing in. Short inhale, long slow exhale: 3-4 of these when needed.
  • Walking Maggie outside is the best but when weather does not permit the treadmill has to do. Maggie is sad.
  • In January when we had 3 weeks without sun, I could feel myself going down the rabbit hole. I purchased a SAD Light for light therapy. Best purchase ever! Verilux $52.97 on Amazon. Good for our Snowbirds that could not get south.
  • Watch funny movies and laugh out loud.

It’s worth the effort, take care of yourself. Be well.

 WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE ARE NOT GOING FOR A WALK?

WELCOME 2021 OPEN FOR RMT MASSAGE, ESTHETICS STARTING JAN.23/21

We are welcoming 2021 and even though it is not getting off to the start we were hoping for, it is a new beginning. 

My wish for the new year is that our Estheticians can join our RMTs and come back to work on January 23rd and that it will be our last lockdown ever.  My positive thinking last April, when I put up the Easter decorations, didn’t work out as I had planned but this time, I’m hoping it’s different.

My second wish for the new year is that we get to celebrate milestone events again. Like weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. The event that I’m looking forward to is my oldest granddaughter Charley becoming a teenager. I’m not happy about it, but she has turned into such a beautiful young lady inside and out. 

Whatever 2021 brings, my wish is that you find the things that bring you joy and happiness.

Happy New Year!

“FALLING ASLEEP COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS”

“Falling asleep counting your Blessings” is a line from a song in “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney.

This year at Christmas it may be hard to think about counting your blessings with all that we have been through.  It’s human nature to focus on the bad things before the good.  But this Holiday Season lets change that.

My blessings are for clients like you who have been there for us; for my wonderful staff that roll with all the changes like champions; for my family/friends that put a smile on my face when I don’t feel like smiling; for living in a great place like Canada.

Now it’s your turn.

Merry Christmas

Please shop local this Christmas Season and support your local Small Businesses. We need you!

Something to look forward too

Do you need something to look forward too?  I have always need this, it could be planning a vacation, going on a vacation or a get together with family and friends.

This year when closing the cottage, it was more depressing than other years, but why?

Normally there would be other things planned that I would be looking forward our fall vacation. But not this year.

So, what are you doing to have something to look forward too?  My husband suggested that we pick a room and clean it from top to bottom.  I didn’t like that idea at all!!

One idea I came up with was, each member of our bubble take a turn cooking a new appetizer or dish for games night.

At the Spa we have decided to give you a few new things to look forward to in the coming months.  This month we have Karrie-Ann Knox who is a BioFeedback Practitioner coming in.  She will use her BioFeedback machine to scan your body for any stress or energy blockages. I have had this done and it is very helpful to manager your health.

If you can think of anything else that we could pair with a service at Spa Sedona I welcome suggestions.

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE! Attitude of Gratitude, as the Motivational speakers would say.

At Christmas my daughter-in-law, Joanna gave me a 5-minute Journal. Each day in the journal you start with writing down three things that you are grateful for.  There have been days in the last six months that it was hard to come up with three.  But, we all have so much to be grateful for; even in these unpredictable times.

These are just a few things that we can all be grateful for: the beautiful summer and now fall we are enjoying; family and friends; our pets; modern technologies that make our life easier; the changing of the seasons; we live in Canada!

For me, when things are not so good, the excitement of my dog, Maggie when she sees me makes me feel so grateful. 

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy Autumn.

 

HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED

In the last month we have watched as a woman joined Joe Biden as his running mate in the US presidential race. Plus, here in Canada a woman became the first Federal Finance Minister in history.

When I hear the great accomplishments of these women I think of my first position as a bank manager in Pickering.  I was doing a loan application for a very accomplished woman to buy a car.  The application was submitted to credit department but it was returned because they wanted her husband to co-sign on the loan.  WHAT!!! This client made more money than her husband, could carry the loan by herself, had assets of her own, plus the car was for her! (I get worked up just writing this) I was not going to let this one go.  With many back and forth conversations with credit department, speaking to the head of the department and even getting my regional manager involved the deal got approved without the husband’s signature.  This doesn’t seem so long ago but it just shows how things have changed.

Let’s celebrate how things have changed by taking care of ourselves first. Come and take advantage of the Special for our new amazing Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid Facial. 

PS – I have always purchased my own cars with a few funny stories to be told on another day.

CANADA UNITED 2020

The summer of 2020 is a summer we will never forget.  We will forever measure experiences against this time.  You will be saying things like “I remember the time I stood in line for 3 hours for a roll of toilet paper”.

We are now in Phase 3 and open for all our services.  Thank you to everyone who have booked in for services. We really appreciate your support.

Support is what small businesses need to recover from this set back. 

My favourite post on Facebook was a picture of a handmade sign in front of a small business that said “Remember when we supported your kid’s sports teams, school fun fairs plus your Church Bazars and fundraisers with donations?  Now I need your support.”

RBC and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce plus other Canadian companies have joined together to help Canadian Small Businesses called “Canada United”.

 I am proud to support @GoCanadaUnited and their initiative to help local businesses. Visit GoCanadaUnited.ca for more information and show local some love. #CanadaUnited

From Canada United:

Give local businesses your business today, or join us August 28, 29 and 30 for a national Canada United Weekend. We want the country to come out and get inside local shops to help them recover and kickstart our economy.

Thank you for your support.

Sherry Robinson
