Spa event aims at making mom happy

There’s a saying “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy,” and URA The Spa is aiming to make mothers happy with a free special event Wednesday, April 30 from noon to 1:30. Healthy Mom, Happy Mom will be the first in a series of health-related talks at the spa, at 444 Danbury Road.

Spa owner Heather Bova, Comprehensive Nutrition president Loryn Galardi, and Brain, Child Magazine editor-in-chief Marcelle Soviero will team up for the lunchtime event showcasing nutrition and lifestyle tips for optimal health as well as journaling and goal-setting ideas that bring about emotional fulfillment.

“I’m excited to launch our lunchtime speaker series with two Wilton moms who will offer tangible guidance in the way of physical and emotional health,” Ms. Bova said.

Ms. Galardi is a Wilton nutritionist specializing in educating people on eating and living mindfully. She will cover the “Healthy Mom” portion of the event. “My goal is to support people as they make diet and lifestyle modifications, which are never easy. I’m thrilled to share go-to tips and tactics for improved health with mothers in the community,” she said.

The “Happy Mom” portion features publisher, writer and mother of five, Ms. Soviero. She is a believer in journaling for mothers as it’s a method that’s proven helpful for her. “I’ve been journaling for 20 years. The process has not only helped me set goals, but to successfully achieve them,” she said. “At URA, I’ll be imparting journaling practices for  women whose personal goals may have temporarily taken a back seat to motherhood.”

In addition to the featured speakers, lunch will be served and a door prize drawing will include items from all participants. Reservations should be made by April 28, by emailing Reservations are highly recommended, but walk-ins are welcome.
