National Relaxation Day is Celebrated on August 15th


Posted August 10, 2020

In the hustle and bustle of today’s technology driven world, it’s easy to feel compelled to check every email, text message, task list and social media message. In an article published by the Cleveland Clinic, psychologist Susan Albers suggests disengaging from technology as a method of relaxation. “We forget how to relax because we’re always plugged in, which re-emphasizes that sense of constantly having to do something,” says Dr. Albers.  “Relaxing should not be viewed as a stopping point, but as a necessary pause.”

Although technology is our connection to the outside world and is critical to communication, commerce and common knowledge, it’s important to get off the grid from time to time and live in the present. Taking the necessary time to relax and unwind will restore energy levels and provide a sense of renewal and perspective. Get lost in your favorite book, take a nature walk, bask in the sun or even go for a swim. Like most others, my phone is glued to my hand and I’m always accessible. Therefore, I know how important it is to take the necessary pause to unplug and mentally recharge.

This month, celebrate National Relaxation Day by visiting your local Planet Beach, where you can enjoy a private spa experience without the need of an attendant.  At the touch of a button, you can enjoy an automated massage, facial or weight management session.  Planet Beach takes pride in offering a variety of automated services and quality products that work in unison to help members achieve their ultimate beauty, wellness, and fitness goals.

All the services offered have a relaxing element, but you will immediately experience that off the grid sensation as soon as you walk through the door.  Stop by your lunch break or spend your weekend relaxing your mind and body so that you can give it your all when it’s time to plug back in.  To visit a location near you, log on to
