If you're anything like me, it's likely that "treat yourself" is high up on your list of words to live by. I won't lie to you, my spending habits get me in trouble sometimes. BUT, I am happy, and at the end of the day, that's all that really matters, if you ask me.
Obviously, it's unrealistic to spend a bunch of money on luxurious things for yourself whenever you feel the urge, but I am definitely an advocate for doing one nice thing for yourself every week, big or small. Not only does this help keep your mental health in check, it also keeps your skin glowing, your smile bright and shiny, and your wardrobe poppin'.
I find that a great way to treat yourself is to book a spa day. Even if you can't afford to go all out with the whole works, something as simple as a manicure, facial, or a massage can completely change not only your appearance, but also your mood. (Gentleman, if you're reading this, you should definitely consider a spa day as a present for your girlfriend, she'll love you, and she probably deserves it).
With all the great spas in Calgary, it's not hard to find somewhere that will keep you on top of your game. We've made a list of some of the best, and broken it down by city quadrant, for your convenience. Next time you're feeling extra boujee, book yourself an appointment - you won't regret it.
