We are now 2 weeks into January 2020, how are you doing on your health goals and other resolutions?
January 17th is referred to as "Quitters Day" which is the day which statistically is the average time people fall off and say "I quit" my New Years Resolution. Don't be that guy! We are here to help you reach your goals this year.

We are all about self love and self care at Wish Rock Relaxation. The best description I've heard has come from motivational speaker Rachel Hollis, who explains it according to the old adage "You can't pour from an empty cup."
We hear over and over that you can't pour from an empty cup; that you should practice self care, fill your cup, then give that full cup to others. And the process repeats itself: fill, empty, fill, empty. Does that sound exhausting to you, too?
Now picture a vase, and visualize all the things that will fill it, such as going on a date with your spouse, hitting the gym every day, enjoying a bubble bath or your massage chair. As you do these things your vase fills. If you continue to do these things, your vase will overflow.
Where does it overflow to?
Your kids, spouse, coworkers, strangers. Giving, not your full cup, but your overflow- doesn't that sound much better?
What I'm getting at is, any goal you've set for yourself in 2020 can best be accomplished when you begin with self care!
How do you generate motivation?
1. Be true to you. You know what works for you better than anyone, so you’ll have to build routines that work best for you... no matter what anyone else thinks.
2. Create leverage. You choose your story. Do you want to create the vivid, beautiful picture of what accomplishing your goals will mean for your life? Or will you always wonder what would have been if only. Stay connected to the version of the story that’s stronger than your excuses.
3. Use momentum. Set daily goals, even if they are small. Persistence is the muscle we’re honing. Seeing progress helps you continue step by step towards your ultimate goal.
4. Celebrate and reward yourself when you make some progress. It will help your confidence to keep going when the going gets tough.
5. Be intentional with who you surround yourself with. You are a reflection of the people you spend the most time with, so choose those people carefully. On the days you don’t have it, you may need some to rub off on you -- and that’ll only happen if you’re in community with a driven crew.
6. Give yourself grace! You will have days in this chase where you fall off track and if you’re too hard on yourself, you’ll take far longer to get back up. Be kind to yourself, dust yourself off, and get back up and keep going.

How do you envision your self care?
Massage chairs have health benefits beyond simply feeling amazing and giving your body a break. They can take you away to an unbeatable state of relaxation right from the comfort of your own home. But they are also known to promote many health benefits. Purchasing a massage chair is much more than a decadent indulgence—it’s a choice to invest in your health and improve your overall well-being.

Designed by NASA, zero-gravity takes the stress off astronauts' bodies as they escape Earth's gravitational pull during lift off. This reclined position in which they sit (at a 90/90 degree angle with the knees and hip positioned at 90 degrees with the spine) distributes the stresses of takeoff across their bodies in a much safer way and removes all pressure from the spine. It also promotes circulation in the legs and reduces swelling, increases your lung function, and enhances your relaxation! Check out this blog post that describes zero-gravity more in depth.
There are times in life when you just need a helping hand to stand up and sit down, due to mobility challenges, pain, or lack of muscle strength. A lift chair can be a great solution, especially for those who may live alone. Using a chair that helps you stand will conserve energy, ease the burden of care on caregivers or family members, and increase safety from falls and the possibility of broken bones. If you, or someone you love and care for, could use this help then Lift Chairs should be something to consider. We invite you to take a look at this blog post, Wish Rock Relaxation's Lift Chair Buying Guide!
