Many people consider relaxation to be a treat or something they don’t have time for, however this should not be the case. Making time to relax and unwind on a regular basis is a vital part of achieving a healthier, happier lifestyle.

If you don’t find the time to relax you put yourself at risk of suffering from stress, which if left can have a negative affect your lifestyle and health. Making the time to do something you enjoy helps keep stress at bay as it lets you take your mind off day to day worries. Relaxation can also improve your motivation as when you go back to normal routine after you’ve unwound your brain should become more focused and active.

Another reason to relax more is that it can boost your immune system. When you lead a busy lifestyle and forget to take time for yourself, your immune system can suffer. Being constantly on the go your body doesn’t have the chance to focus on building up its immune system, as all of your energy is focused on the task at hand. So take a seat and put your feet up every now and then so you can give your body a chance to repair and refresh itself!

Having a regular relaxation routine can also help improve your sleep, and getting a good night’s sleep is very important. If you’ve got money, work, social or family problems on your mind it can be hard to switch off at night and get a good rest. Relaxing helps your body switch off and gives you time to enjoy life and remember what you work for. It also helps you become more motivated, so you worry less about your problems and are able to focus and deal with them better.

People have different ways of relaxing. Some people may prefer to relax alone in a peaceful quiet environment such as spa or putting their feet up binge-watching their favourite programme. Others may prefer to relax with others by going out for meal and a few drinks or enjoying activities together such as playing sports or hitting a few clubs.

At The Stable we offer an environment where you can relax alone or socially. Our state-of-the-art sauna and steam room are ideal for quiet times, and the heat will certainly help you unwind. You could also enjoy a massage with one of our professional masseurs who will make sure you don’t leave the room feeling anything but blissful! Alternatively if you’re more of a social relaxer, our Lounge Bar is great for kicking back and enjoying a few drinks, whilst our spa pool – one of London’s biggest – is suited to those times you want to enjoy some spa therapy in the company of others. Our gay bathhouse is open to male visitors and we encourage a calm and safe atmosphere so our guests can get the most out of their visit.
