On Monday 17 January 2022, it’s Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. It’s a term coined in 2005 by British psychologist Cliff Arnall, who believes people feel at their lowest on this Monday. In the beginning of January, everyone still has many New Year’s resolutions, but by Blue Monday most of these have already fallen by the wayside. Holidays seem a long way off and it’s still dark for most of the day.
At Thermae Boetfort, a day of relaxation is a real experience thanks to our extensive wellness programme. Every day, between 14:00 and 21:30, visitors to our public baths can participate in a variety of sessions, free of charge. These include an aromatic journey in a warm sauna, a singing bowl session in the Silence Bar, and our halotherapy session, among others.

During the aroma session, various fragrant oils are poured onto the hot stones, which releases a wonderful scent into the room. As for the singing bowl session, this involves you sitting or lying down in a relaxing position while the Aufguss master gently plays copper Tibetan singing bowls. The sound vibrations generated create a unique relaxation experience. Halotherapy is a salt therapy that not only benefits your airways, but also does wonders for your skin!

Winter solstice, 21 December, the longest night of the year. From then until 21 June (i.e. the longest night of the year), the nights are getting shorter again, with a few extra seconds of daylight every day. On the longest night, we spend more than 16 hours in darkness. That’s a whole lot of darkness! No wonder it affects our moods.
