5 Reasons Why Moms Need Massage in Fall Most of All
Just because the kids go back to school in the fall doesn’t mean moms get a break. In fact, you’re probably running yourself ragged taking the kids to and from school and to those afterschool activities. Don’t forget all the events that come in fall too, like Halloween parties, plus Thanksgiving and Christmas with family soon after.
With so much going on, it’s important that you take a step back and take the time for yourself. And there’s no better way to do so that with a massage to set you right. Here’s why!
1. Stress relief supreme
You’re the head chef, homework helper, and all-around all-star of the home. And if you have a job on top of that, you’re truly a superhero. All of those responsibilities bring stress in heaping amounts so take time to get a massage. It helps keep your stress hormones balanced and takes the tension buildup out of those muscles.
2. Improves depression and anxiety
It’s a common misconception for people to think that busy people don’t suffer from anxiety and depression. You’re only delaying putting your health first by ignoring those things. Instead, get a massage and help put the balance back. With a massage, serotonin and dopamine are released to balance your moods and reduce stimulation of anxiety and stress.
3. Stronger immunity
Massage is also known to promote a greater presence of your body’s natural pathogen-fighting cells. If you don’t have time to get sick, make time for a massage and beat an illness before it beats you.
4. Deeper sleep
Moms notoriously get less sleep. You go to bed way later than you should and then have to get up early to make sure everyone else gets out the door on time. Lack of sleep can do a number on your health though. And if you try to put your head down on that pillow at night and sleep doesn’t come thanks to all those thoughts roving your brain, a massage is just the answer.
With the release of serotonin from your massage, you’ll be on your way to those sweet dreams. And as a side bonus, deeper sleep allows your cells to refresh so you’ll wake up with more beautiful skin!
5. Pain reduction
When you sit in front of the computer to work all day and then pick up your little ones in your arm, you put too much strain on your neck and back. Instead of suffering through the pain, get a massage to boost that blood flow and relieve strained muscles. Then you’ll be back to Super-Mom status in no time!
