Banish the winter blues with twilight at Elements
The nights are drawing in and the temperature has dropped, the hats, gloves and coats are out in force. Getting motivated to work in the dark mornings can be hard work and the evenings aren't much fun either.
Has the bleak winter weather taken the wind out of your sails too?
You are not alone.
Around 3% of people in the UK are diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder but there is a milder form which affects around 21% of the population in the UK known as a sub-syndromal seasonal affective disorder, also referred to as ‘winter blues’.
Yes, it's cold and dark, but why does that make us feel so low? The science behind it suggests that the lack of daylight causes a decrease in the levels of serotonin, which is the mood-regulating hormone and an increase in melatonin which is the hormone that makes us feel sleepy in the dark. Cue a much-needed, mood-boosting pick-you-up.
Elements Boutique Spa offer three Twilight Spa Packages that will help banish those winter blues and leave you feeling relaxed and pampered. The perfect way to make use of the long dark evenings.
Immerse yourself in a sense of inner peace while your worries and stress all evaporate away. The warmth of the plunge pool will ease your aches and pains whilst you look out into the enchanting starlit scenery of the Somerset Levels.
The Twilight Packages are perfect for those with busy schedules, offering the opportunity to catch up with friends or spend some romantic time with your partner with the benefit of the luxury treatments, thermal facilities and choice of luxury food platters (subject to package choice). Each Twilight package includes a glass of Prosecco on arrival so you can start your evening in style. You are one white robe away from an evening of sheer bliss.
Indulging in some me-time will feed your soul and leave you feeling nurtured and beautified. You will return home to inevitably a good-nights-sleep and feeling ready to take on the world again tomorrow (in your hat, scarf and gloves, of course).
