3 Alternative Ways To Enjoy Summer

Summer (or the dry season) is one of the anticipated seasons of the year. This is the time when most of us are in vacation mode. Oftentimes, we use this season to reflect, relax, and rejuvenate.

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t appreciate the heat, don’t fret, as you can still experience the summer feels with these 3 alternative ways.

Are you ready? Here we go:

3. Body / Foot Scrub

Body or foot scrubs are essential nowadays due to our stressful lifestyle. As what experts and wellness advocates say, we need detoxification to flush out bad toxins. At Ahavia Spa Lounge, their scrubs services help detoxify by removing any bad blockages in our skin to rejuvenate.

In case you’re wondering, Ahavia offers two of their best scrubs services:

  1. Silky milky Scrub – this helps whiten dark spots, exfoliates, and moisturizes our skin.
  2. Botanical Scrub – this has antioxidant properties that help fight free radicals and helps keep the skin elastic.

2. Massage

Admit it: everything is literally just a tap away. We are more comfortable sitting than walking. As a result, we develop a sedentary lifestyle.

Massage, in its simplest form, isn’t only for relaxation purposes, it’s also a form of treatment.


“We have to remember that our body is designed to move and not to sit,” says Krystine, Ahavia Maria Clara branch owner. 

And because most of us are office-based, we complain about frozen shoulders, backache, and worse, the carpal tunnel. These body problems are due to poor blood circulation.

With that in mind, Ahavia Spa Lounge offers various massage services like 50% off their VIP rooms for every purchase of a 2-hour massage.

1. Meditate

One vital reason why I love meditating is the flexibility for me to rethink and reassess life. It prevents me from going postal! :)

When all else fails, mediate.

This is what’s lacking nowadays: reflecting on our surroundings. We must reflect on things that have impacted our lives. In fact, studies show that meditating and listening to music are proven to effectively lessen our anxieties.

Realistically, we often forget to sit back, relax, and rekindle with the things we really love doing.

Let’s not forget: love yourself first and everything will follow.

Ultimately, summer is here for us to enjoy the best things in life: family, friends, and yourself.

If you have nowhere else to go this Holy Week, choose to fill your empty tanks by investing in your body, mind, and soul.
