Does Your Brain Need a Break?

After the holiday excitement, it’s easy to get stuck in a “wake up – eat – go to work – come home – watch TV – go to bed – repeat” kind of routine. Some people have Valentine’s Day to look forward to, others have winter vacations to give them a chance for a breather, but what do you do when your next three day weekend is in February or even as late as May? It’s time to break up your routine and give your mind a break from days and days of work. It’s time to visit our tanning salon!

If you want a mini break from your day, come visit Nova Tans in Windsor for a few minutes in one of our deluxe tanning beds. You can plug in some headphones and imagine yourself lying on a beach at some remote location. Or you can simply stop by and have a chat with one of our tanning salon experts. We’re more than happy to lend an ear so you can vent about the ski conditions in the mountains.

In the meantime, here are some tips on how to take a few minutes here and there to relax your mind.

Look & Feel Healthy Schedule a Spray Tan

Turn the Volume Up

When you’re beginning to feel the drain of the repetitive routine, sometimes all it takes is to play your favorite song a few times on repeat. Get in the car and take a drive on a sunny Colorado day (there have been quite a few recently), turn the volume up, and let the words and rhythm drown out the sounds of the day to day stresses. Or if it’s too cold outside, put on your favorite pair of leggings and have a mini dance party in your living room! We won’t judge you.

Grab a Pillow

When stress is building up, it can feel amazing to just let it all out in one big yell, or growl, or cry, or squeal. After a long day of work, come home to your favorite pillow and give it a big scream! You can yell at your boss, your friend who isn’t calling you back, or your boyfriend who isn’t putting the seat down. Whatever it is, just let it out.

Go For a Walk

We understand that everyone has busy schedules and it’s hard to get out there and exercise, but if you have even just 10 minutes to walk around your block, your heart, your lungs, and your mind will thank you. Take in everything around you, the trees, kids coming home from school, the sun in the clouds, breath in the fresh air! Even if you have to stop walking for a minute to take a picture of a footprint in the snow, it’s a moment where you’re not thinking about whatever has been clogging your mind.

Visit Our Tanning Salon

No, we’re not therapists or big teddy bears that you can hug to relieve stress, but it’s surprising how relaxing a couple minutes in a tanning bed can be. Three to seven minutes of warm lights, relaxing music, and an opportunity to think about chomping down on an ice cream cone that you’ve been missing out on because of the freezing temperatures can help your mind find peace from a hectic schedule.

If it’s time to refresh your tan or simply time for a break, visit our tanning salon in Windsor today. We’re here for whatever you need.
