The modern world is full of hectic schedule and overambitious aspiration of each human being. Today we have lost our emotions and societal behavior in the race against time, money and comfort. In the wake of achieving our lofty and commercial aspiration human behavior has become more stressful in order to achieve more productivity. According to WHO report, every third person in the world is victim of stress leading to depression and finally reducing the efficiency of productivity. As far as relationship between stress and productivity is concerned both the actions are inversely related which means, when stress factor increases it causes loss of productivity. If we consider the scientific relationship same can be explained that every matter is productive when it is in its normal state of configuration. Even psychological research emphasize that when you are in stress you deviate yourself from normal approach if work which decreases your efficiency to more productive. A creative and productive mind requires healthy and open thinking. Some people work better in stress but that too has limited application restricted to particular level.
But for increasing productivity and adding efficient productivity requires controlled activity of body, which can also train your body and mind to prepared for hard times where you can handle the stress in more effective way. For instance, when I went for my body spa I felt to so rejuvenated and prepared for all weather to deal with any adverse circumstances. To avoid stress one just needs to visit a spa and get a head or foot reflexology to be refreshed so that one can handle the stress in more effective way. The ambiance too helps you feel relaxed. Color Cafe is just the right place for it and my second home also. In short the ambiance is like a palace or temple. The first rule for improving the productivity and avoiding stress is to make a planned goal and work for it. A visit to a salon & spa can give you the confidence and fresh mind to achieve any and every of your ambitious goal in life or work. Secondly, life is full of uncertainty and no one can predict that what will happen in the future, but what is in our hand is to work with positive attitude and with all our happiness by fixing the goal or aim in small quantum and be prepared for the worst and do your best which will automatically enhance your productive approach. If you need to be productive you must work with ease and without stress. It is always good to take your work seriously but it does not mean that one must handle it with stress which can lead to loss of efficient productivity. I am an advocate for the corporate world, my job involves me traveling all over the country. However the moment I step into Color Cafe, I forget all my stress, worries, tension and leave my work behind. I start restoring all my energy. After work it is my first priority to visit Color Cafe. My husband is always surprised when I return home active and fresh as a daisy! So in order to be productive you have to work smartly without any stress. For this we have to plan, be punctual and take things with smart approach which will automatically be productive and add happiness of mind.

A busy week is a part of our life. Exhaustion, stress, tension and work pressure are few of the most common and frequent emotions a person can feel in today's world. In this, finding time for refreshment and relaxation is extremely difficult. Time and weekends are the most important thing that we have and a person thinks twice before they invest it somewhere.

However won't it be amazing to feel not only rejuvenated but also ready to jump right back into your work packed schedule? Won't it be nice to have a fresh and healthy mindset when you get back to your tasks? And won't it be nice to have a break without looking for faraway holiday destinations?

Well, here is where a Salon & Spa comes in. An all-in-one solution.

Let's understand it through an example.

We have two people here. Mickey and Donald. Now Mickey is the CEO of a Multinational Company. He works day in and day out. Donald is the General Manager in an another company. He too, works extremely hard. Weekend arrives. CEO Mickey and GM Donald, both are to work for an important presentation on billion dollars Investment in share market for their client on Monday. Both of them are very stressed and exhausted after a long tiring week. GM Donald goes home and gets straight to work. Where else CEO Mickey books an appointment for a body spa therapy, foot and head reflexology. After the spa, he gets home, refreshed, recharged and highly energized and goes out again with his family for a lovely dinner. He then gets to work.

On the other hand, GM Donald who got right to work had an argument with his family, is over-stressed for his presentation, has anxiety, is making frequent mistakes while preparing his part of the presentation and isn't fully focused on work.

Monday arrives. GM Donald is late because he worked late at night for the presentation without sleep. Whereas CEO Mickey has arrived an hour early to look over the set up for the presentation and recheck everything twice.

During the presentation, GM Donald messes up a lot and CEO Mickey is cool, calm and collected.

We can all guess who handled the presentation well.

A break is what one needs before and after a busy week. CEO Mickey, who de-stressed himself was ready to work. Whereas GM Donald who was working without a break didn't think about recharging himself.

The concept here is very simple. As long as your body is refreshed, your mind is in a state of peace.

A salon & spa helps in both. Peace of mind and refreshment of body. Self care is one of the best things a person can do for themselves. It not only affects you but also your loved ones, your career, environment and work life.
