“She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the Universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.” ― Ariana Dancu
Ginkgo Spas celebrate women every month, but August is when it is done officially. We celebrate the strength and unity that womanhood means. But being a strong woman requires that you also take care of yourself, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
What does it mean to be a strong woman? Women are natural born leaders, and are known to drive change, motivate others as well as take care of the people around them. Women are also prone to stress and the effects of chronic stress can be compounded. You only have one body, you need to ensure its resilience. It is time for better maintenance — a healthier lifestyle — to repair itself. Face it: It’s time to recapture the forgotten sense of well-being!
We look at 5 unique characteristics of a strong woman.
1. Strong women are Resilient
Being a resilient woman means you are able to adapt to stress and adversity which can come in lots of different shapes. You are able to bounce back after being stretched like a rubber band and still maintain your form. You don’t shy away from change and are often at the forefront of innovation.
2. They know it’s ok to Ask for Help
But you also know that it doesn’t make you weak to ask for help when needed. Every strong woman knows that she can rely on her friends to help carry her burdens. Strong women surround themselves with other experienced and valuable people.
3. They value themselves and others
Strong women know that their value doesn’t come from others. They don’t back down when facing criticism and rejection. They believe in themselves and can see the best in people. This makes them a strong motivational force that will tackle challenges head on.
4. Never give up
Fear can be crippling and keep us from reaching for the stars we deserve. Strong women know that not trying is failing, but failing while trying is just another stepping stone. Determination to succeed and to learn from experiences and mistakes is what makes a woman strong.
5. They don’t sacrifice their Sensitivity
Through all the challenges and adversity, a strong woman remains sensitive, thoughtful, and caring. Continuously taking care of those around her with compassion and grace.
Because you are always taking care of others, we are giving you an opportunity to come and restore some of that strength that is needed from you every day. Our Massage Treatments are designed to relax, rejuvenate and revitalise, and during August we have fantastic Women’s Month Spa Specials that are designed to make you feel and look your best.
