Living in the country has many advantages. I have lived in busy capitals and travelled extensively before I had children and moved to the countryside. Much as I love living here, I found that I missed the company of like-minded people and the friends I left behind. I missed that sense of community and infrastructure I had when I was living in London.
Becoming a mother was the most profound and the most extraordinary job I have ever done. I have built and run my own business before, but nothing compares to the demands of parenting my three children. Being a Virgo, I wanted to do the absolute best I was capable of. I forgot that endlessly giving and expanding my energy unilaterally, was going to have consequences. In the end, I got so depleted that it forced me to realise that I needed to find balance. I had to put something back, if I were to stay so committed to giving.
I have seen many luxury spas with conveyor belt service and industrial size manifold approaches. I have also seen and experienced cramped, restricted and limited spaces for treatments and exercise. I wanted a more bespoke, caring, intimate, gentle but stimulating centre for those who may prefer an exquisite, precious place of rejuvenation, recovery and workout. I wanted Wellington Wellbeing to be a welcoming warm hug. I do so hope it is how you will experience it.
