Let me just start by saying, I’m an over-thinker. So I can have several unfinished conversations with myself in the time it takes you to read this paragraph.

We’re so fortunate to have SO many great day spas in Adelaide and I’m slowly making my way around Every. Single. One. “Research”, I tell my husband. But, if you’re like me and your brain thinks a thousand thoughts a second, it’s hard to switch off, even when you’re meant to be relaxing.

Here are 15 things I think about while  getting a massage. Can you relate to any of these?

1. Why did I wear a lacy G? She’ll think I’m a SL*T. Should have worn Bonds.

2. Hmmm, what should I have for dinner? I think there’s frozen lasagna in the freezer. Oh, actually, I’m feeling a bit bloated. I’ll have salad.

3. Oh crap, I’ve got an itch. Quick, run your hands over it, come on, get it. GET IT! God, she’s nowhere near it! Concentrate on something else, it will go away. Or will it?

4. Don’t think about the kids. I wonder what the kids are doing right now?

5. Hurry up and ask me If the pressure is okay, so I can say, “No, can you please go a bit harder.”

6. Oh God, I should have eaten before I came, my stomach is about to rumble. I’ll have to do the uncomfortable fake laugh and say, “Oh sorry” eight hundred times.

7. When she whispers in my ear to turn over – should I talk to her? Or just flip? Is it rude if I don’t chat to her?

8. I need to send those emails. Then I’ll cook dinner before getting the kids. Wait, I probably won’t have time to do that before I get them. I’ll cook when they get home. Stop thinking – enjoy this.

9.Yes, right there! My God, this is Heaven! I should do this more often. Why don’t I? I deserve it. Shit, the itch is back. SCRATCH IT! AHHHHH.

10. Can she see my cellulite? I bet she thinks I’m gross. Wait, everyone has cellulite — even Miranda Kerr. Maybe I should flex, so she can’t see it.

11. Did I just dribble?

12. I wonder what time it is? I think she’s been going for about 40 minutes and she’s not leaving enough time for my feet. Should I tell her I want my feet done? Nah, she’ll think I’m being needy.

13. Oh that tickles, think about something sad so I don’t laugh. Oh shit, that’s so ticklish! Quick move to another spot.

14. Oh no, she’s opening my legs to get to my thighs. She can see my skanky undies. Oh shit.

15. Don’t fall asleep. Don’t fall asleep. Don’t fall asleep — or you might let one rip!


I wish I could be one of those super relaxed people who falls asleep during a massage. But then again, how boring would that be?!
