Cay-Arrowhead

Cay Stout

AVANTI Med Spa
located at Arrowhead Plastic Surgeons
1360 Arrowhead Rd., Maumee.
419-887-4524 | arrowheadsurgeons.com

What do you do to look, or feel, better?
I feel my best when my body is moving more and my mind less. Getting my heart rate up in the outdoors is ideal— a vinyasa yoga routine on my deck, hiking with friends at Wildwood Preserve Metropark, or cycling on the Wabash/Cannonball Trail. To slow my mind, I meditate daily. The best days start with a guided meditation (thank you, YouTube!) while I’m still snuggled in my bed. If I need a reset throughout the day, I simply sit cross-legged on the floor, at my desk, or in my car— breath deeply and repeat mantras, allowing any anxiety to evaporate.
My biggest indulgences are:
Coffee with real cream, Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
Cups, and monthly massages.
Time to unwind: would you rather be left alone, or taken to a party?
While it brings me joy to connect with friends and meet new people, when my batteries need recharging I prefer to be alone— curled up with my dog, a nice glass of red wine, and the New York Times’ Crossword Puzzle.

Where do I start? Be gentle with yourself. Extra weight you may be carrying around or smile lines are all signs that you are making memories with family and friends. Plus, you can always come see me for Botox!
