How a relaxing massage might help you find your muse
There is a reason why they call it massage therapy. Going to a spa, or having a professional masseuse come to your home is a great way to get rid of the tension and stress that living in the 21st Century brings to you. Relaxing away the stress can help clear your mind, making it easier to find inspiration and come up with new creative ideas.
It was my girlfriend that introduced me to the concept of setting aside a little me time. Before her, I would have never thought of booking an appointment at a spa and getting myself some nice and relaxing massage therapy. Before she convinced to try it out, I figured that a man’s man like me had no business going to one of these places where people get pampered. Before her, I would live with all the tension and stress that came with the living in the twenty-first century, letting it form into nice tight knots in my shoulder and back muscles.
Thank God for girlfriends.
After experiencing my first rub down from a licensed massage therapist, I began to understand why it was called a therapeutic massage in the first place. Having those tight knots worked out of my muscles allowed me to fully relax for the first time in a long time. This deep relaxation helped me completely clear all thoughts and worries out of my mind allowing me to feel completely refreshed and renewed for the first time in months. This emptying of my mind then allowed room for fresh new ideas to enter my mind, allowing me to go back to work with a new found sense of purpose and enthusiasm.
Next time you feel the stress and tension building to the point that it has become impossible for you to concentrate on the creative task at hand, it is time to treat yourself. Book an appointment at local spa, or have a massage therapist come to you and let them work out all that inspiration blocking tension that is keeping your muse from you. After a nice relaxing afternoon of this, you will find yourself refreshed and your creative self free to take on new ideas. If you cannot spare the time to get yourself to the spa, try out one of those massage chairs at the mall, or get a loved one to rub you down. However you get the tension and stressed rubbed out of you, your body and your mind will thank you.
