Feeling Blue?

With Christmas now a distant memory, the cold weather beating down the door and a long way to pay day, it’s no wonder researchers have denounced the 20th of January as officially the ‘most depressing day of the year’, also known as Blue Monday. However, at Feversham Arms Hotel we have launched an exclusive ‘calming’ package designed to combat stress and the blues, which is available for 24 hours only.

It is estimated that 79% of the publication suffer the most on Blue Day, with depression and stress at its highest point – a theory first formulated by psychologist Cliff Arnell. His theory is based on the ‘hibernation effect’, a time of the year when we feel tired, don’t exercise, stay indoors and eat comfort food. And it’s not just the individuals that suffer, with an estimated £93 billion in lost productivity for businesses across the nation.

The unique package, is centred completely around relaxation to ensure the recipient makes it through Blue Monday unscathed. After checking in and leaving your troubles at the door, your day begins with a trip to the Verbena Spa where you can enjoy the Heat Experience’s facilities including a steam room and aromatherapy room. Don’t forget to take a dip in the outdoor heated pool, where you’ll find your mood instantly improved due to the endorphins released from a vigorous swim. After whiling away the time in the spa, you will then be whisked off to indulge in the Anne Semonin Thermal Stones Experiences, which works to relieve stress at the deepest level through heated black basalt stones that massage the whole body for a holistic and energising therapy for the mind, body and spirit. 

Once you have been fully pampered in the spa, you can then retreat to your suite where a gift bag will be waiting for you, complete with a self help book and mood lifting goodies. Then enjoy an indulgent meal via room service for some much-needed ‘me time’, with many of the delicious key ingredients – let’s list them - picked due to their positive benefits. And after the delicious meal, finish off your day with our library of rom-com DVDs, which have been scientifically proven to reduce stress.
