When filming for Buying Blind wrapped up last year the crew gave me a voucher for the day spa at Crown Casino. I was feeling in need of a bit of a treat so I indulged myself by doubling the value of the voucher for a four-hour stint at the spa.
Who knew you could actually relax for that long??? It was a super-hot day in Melbourne so I got there early to escape the oppressiveness of the city. I enjoyed some heavy-duty relaxation in the steam rooms, before a Reiki session, body scrub, body wrap, and full oil massage. By the time I floated out the cool change had arrived and Melbourne was calm and balmy and beautiful.
I’m learning that it’s so important to give yourself permission to take time out. It’s not always easy when you’re juggling life and work, but it’s nourishment for your soul and gives you a chance to stop and reset.
PS: If someone gifts you a voucher I highly recommend adding some money to it if you can afford it and extending the experience for a super-indulgent pampering experience.
