LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – If you’re looking for that perfect gift to promote better health, CHI Saint Joseph Health has a few suggestions. Give the people on your “nice” list the gift of better health this holiday season with these suggestions.
- Exercise accessories – The gift of athletic wear can help motivate someone and give them the confidence to exercise more. New tennis shoes, wireless headphones and activity trackers are perfect gifts for helping a loved one reach fitness goals. Activity trackers that count steps and miles are an extremely popular item, and many new models connect right to a smart phone for easy use.
- Access to fitness – Cost can be a barrier when it comes to access to fitness opportunities. Especially for those who are not comfortable running outside in the winter weather. So, give a gift card to cover fees at a gym or fitness classes. Ask your health care provider for recommendations on affordable locations.
As the holidays wind to a close, many people are thinking about healthy eating. Consider giving a gift that promotes a balanced diet, like a healthy food delivery subscription, a healthy recipe cookbook or a blender for shakes/smoothies and for a quick meal on the go. For the healthy eater who likes to cook, consider food prep items like mixing bowls or measuring cups/spoons, food storage containers or ingredients like olive-based products.
Gifts that support mental health and well-being are always well-received. Caregivers are often in special need of extra support.
Your gifts can help support those who want to stay active and make healthier choices in the new year. Make a commitment to spread the blessing of good health and give the gift of self-care this holiday season.
