Is Your Skin Taking a Beating this Winter? A Hydrating Organic Facial is the Cure!

Right now, our skin is taking a real beating. With the gray skies of northeast Ohio, the fact that we are spending most of our time inside, and to top it all off, there is little or no humidity in the air -- it isn't any wonder that our face looks ashen, wrinkled, and dry.

We drink plenty of water and try to moisturize. This works for a little while, but what we really need is some extra TLC to treat our winterized skin.

Callatis Spa is just the place to go! With Valentine's Day around the corner it is the perfect place to go to look extra special for the man in your life. Make sure to ask your special someone to purchase a Callatis Spa gift certificate for you!

4 Hints to Make Your New Year's Resolutions Stick

Happy New Year, Everyone!

As we start the new year, most everyone has great hope that this will be their best year ever. You will lose those 15 pounds that you have put on over the years. You will exercise more. You will come home from work earlier so you can spend more quality time with your family.

And the list goes on and on....

But what about a resolution that puts yourself first? One that you can stick to all year long?

Most resolutions are vague and lose momentum about the end of February. You don't see the weight peeling off your body, you have missed several days at the gym, or you were just slammed with a big project at work that is cutting into your family time. It is now that you feel like a "resolution" failure. But, it doesn't have to be that way.

The key is finding time for yourself and creating a balanced life. Balance can be created by giving yourself time to re-energize yourself. And one the best places to do so is at a spa.

Here are 4 great tips to keep your resolution going all year long:

Tip #1: Write down clear, measurable goals. 

Here is an example of an unclear goal:
"I am going to take better care of myself." 
A clear goal has 5 elements, that are indicated in the following acronym -- SMART which stands for:

Specific: I will take natural supplements plus walk 15 minutes every day and go for an hour long meditative massage every two weeks.

Measurable: You will know whether or not you achieved these results, because you have set specific goals.

Attainable: This is where you ask yourself if you have the time and desire to make these goals happen.

Realistic: Are these goals realistic given all the demands in your life? If the answer is yes, keep the goal. If it is no, you will need to revise it.

Timely: Can you achieve these goals in 2013? If the answer is no, revise the goals.

Tip #2: Visualize what your life looks like when you achieve your goals. 

See yourself calmer, balanced and healthy. See your skin as clear and flawless. See your tension displaced with happy and calm thoughts.

Tip #3: Get to the source if you find you are having a hard time meeting your resolutions. 

This is a time to ask for help. Perhaps you need to ask your partner to watch the children when you go for your massage. Or ask your co-workers to walk with you during the lunch break. Or have your children pitch in with household chores. Whatever the situation, finding out why you can't make your resolutions happen is the key to overcoming those obstacles.

Tip #4: Reward yourself with every accomplishment. 

If you have been sticking with your plan for 30, 60, or 90 days, give yourself a reward for the effort. Perhaps you get a facial with your next massage appointment. Or you buy an iPod so you have music while you are walking. Whatever it is, make certain the reward is comparable to accomplishment.
