It’s tempting to spend your lunch hour at any number of Lower Manhattan’s shops and restaurants. But, rather than rushing yourself through a meal or running an errand while contending with crowds and chaos, why not treat yourself to an actual break?
Thread (140 Nassau St.) is an ideal salon for a self-care session in the middle of a work day, and here are five reasons why (as if you needed them).
Beauty Breaks Are An Easy Way To Decompress
We’re all so easily programmed to forego self-care and plunge ourselves into life’s ongoing to-do list. But you deserve real pampering, and what better way to divorce yourself from the daily grind than an express facial? And you’ll be back at the office fresh-faced to finish out the rest of the day.
Multitasking Isn’t Exclusively For Office Work
Why should you reserve the weekend for waxing appointments? Squeeze in a session in between meetings. Thread offers several waxing services for legs, arms, underarms, shoulders, backs, chests and stomachs. If you haven’t shaved in a week or so, you only need a few minutes to pop in and buff yourself up. Then pick up lunch after and shovel your salad at your desk while you slack on Slack.
You Can Transform The 9-to-5 Version Of Yourself
Mess with your coworkers by doing a quick change from morning to afternoon. Experiment with a new beauty trend. Get your eyebrows micro-bladed or eyelashes extended. See if anyone notices the difference.
Cut Down On Screen Time
The great thing about getting a facial is you absolutely cannot do much else but lie back and relax while the mud mask does its magic. Put down the phone. Close your eyes. Enjoy a moment of serenity. You’ll be more productive later if you do.
Make This Part Of Your Monthly (Even Weekly) Routine
It’d be foolish not to. Thread provides customer loyalty cards for all services. Get a free threading or waxing every seventh visit.
