Happy New Year

Absolute Body Balance
Best Raleigh Massage 
In the forefront of everyone's minds right now is their new year's resolution and how they will continue them for the entire year. What I'm going to discuss today is one of the biggest obstacles, in my opinion, that easily breaks a New Years resolution: seasonal/post holiday affective disorder, or just general lowering of your mood in the winter.

The winter months go on forever and the cold weather can really take its toll. It takes away motivation to even get out of bed, let alone get out of the door. There are more cloudy days, rain and wind and less sunshine to brighten our days. With the dread of a winter that doesn't seem to have an end, what can you do to keep your spirits up and your resolution on track?

There are many things people use to make it through the winter and one of those very successful options is massage.  With a heated table, relaxing music, and soothing lighting most people don't need much more convincing. Though, those aspects of massage are nice, there are many other qualities to draw someone to a massage office.  With already feeling low, any type of ache or pain is going to be exaggerated.  Keeping up with massage can reduce these extra stressors that can be the breaking point in your resolution. Massage can also release "feel good" hormones that help you to let go of stress and take a break from worrying.  It is important to let yourself be free from worrying, even if it's just for an hour.  Never letting go of stress and always being worried can lead to things such as: anxiety, depression, digestive problems, heart problems, weight gain, sleep problems, and memory and concentration impairment.

While massage is not the only thing that can help with seasonal depression, it is easily accessible, only takes an hour of your time, and is less expensive than a vacation. Absolute Body Balance offers a new client special, $55 for your first one hour massage. Call 919-841-9344 to schedule or visit
