This holiday season, give the gift of good health!
Instead of spending a fortune on the latest fad, invest in your health and the health of your loved ones.
Trends come and go, but good health will always be in style. Whether you’re shopping for a budding health nut or a fitness fanatic, this guide will help you find the perfect healthy gift for all the special people in your life.
REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE
The body is composed of 95 percent water, and proper hydration is extremely important to overall health and wellness. Keep plastic water bottles out of landfills and save money by giving a reuseable water bottle. There are hundreds of options when it comes to reusable water bottles; they are available in solid colors or prints, made of varying materials, and there are even models that have a secret spot for your debit card or sensors that track your water intake!
APPLE WATCH/FITBIT/ACTIVITY TRACKER
A watch with either a built-in activity tracker or one that provides ample apps to meet your exercise level, age, and needs offers a wealth of information on your daily activity levels, including how many steps you’ve taken, how many flights of stairs you’ve climbed and how many hours you slept. Some models offer heart rate monitoring as well. You can even program these to alert you if you haven’t moved for a certain period of time. The varying models of activity trackers make it the perfect gift for anyone!
Out-of-control portions can sabotage any person’s diet. A food scale allows you to take control of your diet and know exactly how much you’re eating. Using a food scale at home also helps educate yourself on what proper portions look like, so when you’re eating out you won’t have to worry about overeating.
Maintaining mental health is essential to overall well-being. Give the gift of massage therapy to help your loved ones destress from all the chaos that can come with the holidays. Massages can also help the body detox, in addition to alleviating stress. Take it a step further and gift a spa package to ensure maximum relaxation.
Many people resolve to be healthier in the new year. By giving your friends and family the gift of good health, you are helping to get them one step closer to that goal. There are a wealth of tools out there that make healthy living easier than ever before.
So this holiday season, show your loved ones how much they mean to you by giving them a gift they can use to reach their health goals! And if you need help achieving better health in the new year, AFC/Doctors Express can help!
