Back to School With SpaFinder Wellness - Toronto Teacher Mom

Back to School With SpaFinder Wellness

Thursday, July 25, 2013



So here we are, midway through summer and the often dreaded return of school days looming on the horizon. The countless trips to the pool, theme park, ice cream parlour, it's all been fun, no doubt. But is has likely left some parents with little time to just chill. And by 'some', I'm referring to me. Even when I'm not running about shuttling the kids to soccer or piano lessons, it has proven to be quite difficult to find the ever elusive 'me time' so many moms and dads long for.

Summer vacation is without a doubt my most favourite time of the year. It provides us teachers a time to reflect, re-energize and renew our passion for the profession before starting another school year. With two children of my own, however, I spend most of the summer running Camp Mom and keeping up with the ol' blog. When do I get a vacation, you ask? Well, if I pack up the kids for a weekend getaway chez mes parents, that's about as good as it gets. Don't get me wrong. They run the best bed-and-breakfast that only grandparents can afford to their direct descendents. And I always feel a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders when I'm there. Yet, sometimes, I simply yearn to be alone with me, myself and I.

SpaFinder Wellness understands the desire to feel happy and healthy, and the undeniable need to relieve stress, and find balance. Dedicated to sharing inspiration, experiences, and information to help you find and share your personal path to wellness, SpaFinder.ca has made it easy to locate and book spa, wellness, yoga, Pilates, weight loss, fitness, and salon services at various locations across the country. You can also purchase SpaFinder Wellness Gift Cards - the gift every teacher everyone wants (and needs!) and the only spa and wellness gift card accepted at over 20,000 locations around the globe.



Recognizing that it's time for your vacation, SpaFinder.ca has offered up a $50 SpaFinder Wellness gift card to one of my readers here on Toronto Teacher Mom. That is enough to take advantage of the "Love Yourself" Mondays pedicure deal at The Briars Resort & Spa or 30 Days of Yoga at 889 Yoga + Wellness Spa right here in Toronto. 


To be eligible to win, you must be a resident of Canada and will need to submit your entries via the Raflecopter form below.

My mother passed away in early July, and I have been caring for my disabled brother. Trying to find a place in a group home for him has been a challenge. I could use some de-stressing right about now!
