Life is a balancing act, and it’s normal to lean in different directions at different times. Crystal Springs Resort offers some tips to help you stay in or achieve that balance, and take back some control of how you live your life. “A well-balanced person has a far greater ability to focus their attention and energy on attaining goals, taking productive actions and moving forward in a meaningful way.”*
Below are 10 tips that can help you find your balance, and with the help of the incredible array of amenities at Crystal Springs Resort, it’s easier than ever. Let us help you guide yourself to mental, physical and emotional equilibrium.
Disconnect - Shut off all electronic devices whether it’s for an hour before bed, or for the whole weekend. You’ll be amazed at the results. You’ll wake up more rested, you’ll come up with new things to do, maybe even pick up a new hobby. To practice, shut your phone off for just ten minutes and see how you feel.
Say 'no' - Even though being a ‘yes’ man or woman every now and then can introduce you to new things, it may also be overwhelming. Sometimes it’s ok to say no – especially when not getting any value from the request.
Stay Positive - This follows along with #2. If you’re not getting a positive influence or value from being around certain people, then don’t be around them. Surround your thoughts and space with positivity.
Treat Yourself - Every now and then, take some ‘me’ time. Sometimes, an act as simple as filing your nails can make you feel like a new person. Every so often, give yourself a gift of indulgence, such as a spa treatment at either Elements or Reflections. Try indulging in one of these signature treatments:
Art of Reflections Massage – Reflections Spa
Tri-Crystal Body Scrub – Reflections Spa
Chai Soy Detoxifying Facial – Reflections Spa
Sacred Stone Massage – Elements Spa
Radiance Jessner Treatment – Elements Spa
Detoxifying Mineral Mud Body Treatment – Elements Spa
Connect - NOT with the internet or your smart phone, but with your friends and family. Listen to what they have to say and learn from it. Whether it’s over a glass of wine from our world-renowned 135,000 bottle wine cellar or at one of our award-winning restaurants, spend some quality time in a relaxing setting and reconnect with loved ones.
Explore - Enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer. Go for a walk along one of our mountain trails, and discover the area's animals and plants with a hike through the Adventure Center at Minerals Hotel. If you need some inspiration on how to explore, watch a kid in action…children do it best.
Expand - Take a class, learn to paint or try something new that you’ve always wanted to learn. Minerals Hotel offers art classes and activities to help you discover new interests, such as yoga, stargazing, glow ball, cooking demonstrations and more.
Have fun - Why not hit the slopes or take a snowboarding lesson at Mountain Creek? A guaranteed blast! Or take a ride down the water slide at the 10,000 sq. ft. Biosphere tropical pool complex. Enjoy yourself and have a good time. Life is short!
Eat well - Overeating or eating the wrong foods will have a negative affect on your life. Monitor your diet, and remember that in most cases, everything in moderation.
Move it! - Exercise can boost your energy level which will help you concentrate better. Minerals Sports Club offers 80+ weekly fitness classes, with 7 indoor/outdoor nature pools, a 6,000 sq. ft. fitness center, basketball, racquetball & tennis courts, indoor track, sauna, steam room and much more to help you get active.
Discover what tips work for you to enjoy greater balance in life. It’s as simple as remembering who you are and what you enjoy. Henry David Thoreau reminds us "The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it." Your life is valuable – find balance and enjoyment in it.
