Holiday Gift List For Loved Ones – The Gift Of Good Health


Holiday gift list for loved ones, the gift of good health.  Teaming up with a friend or family member in a weight-loss program, or to stop smoking are becoming meaningful gifts that are yielding meaningful results.

It’s that time of year again.  The holiday shopping season is gearing up.  The sale flyers try to lure you in with their announcement of the “lowest prices of the season!”  Many people, out of sheer necessity, have had to cut back on their holiday gift list.  Many are completely re-thinking what type of gift they give.  People want to give more practical, and more truly meaningful gifts.

How about giving the gift of health.   It sounds like a greeting card, but health really is a gift.  If your loved ones (or yourself) are in poor health, what does all the other “stuff” really matter anyway.   It’s hard to enjoy that latest electronic gadget or wear the latest fashions, if you feel too lousy to use it or go anywhere.   And who needs more trinkets to clean around and cause stressful clutter??  Whether you want a healthier lifestyle yourself or want to give the gift of encouraging healthier habits in others, here are some gift giving ideas.

Good health isn’t a right; you have to work for it.  What you eat and how you conduct your life every day contributes to the type of health you will enjoy now and for years to come.  The best way to start building a more healthful future is to start curtailing bad habits today.  If you or someone you love smokes, is overweight or otherwise just clueless about eating right to feel great, you can change their future for the better and potentially even save their lives by getting them to take personal responsibility for their physical future.  That is a truly meaningful gift that can show your love and concern for them.

•Stop smoking — The American Cancer Society projects that half of Americans who smoke will eventually die as a result of the habit.  From hypnosis to other stop-smoking aids, there are resources available that will make quitting easier than it was even five years ago.  Smokers have a better chance of quitting with support and encouragement, so give the gift of becoming a “stop-smoking cheerleader” for someone you love.  Eliminating the toxins from your body and your home goes a long way toward healthful living.

•Start moving — Take your favorite couch potato for a brisk walk, and suggest some form of regular exercise.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends 150 minutes of moderately intense aerobic exercise weekly for adults.  Give them the gift of your company on these walks and give the benefits to yourself as well.

•Achieve a healthy weight — Diet plays a big part in good health.  If someone you love is overweight, it can be a touchy issue, but there are some ways to approach the weight topic.  Offer to participate in a proven weight-loss program with them.  It’s so much easier to accomplish when you have a buddy to support you along the way.   As part of a general health regimen, spring for a visit to a nutrition consultant or personal trainer.  Your loved one may take a few  suggestions better from a professional. Learn about the Nutrition Supplements and healthful eating habits that you need to really help your loved ones and yourself accomplish your goals of feeling great.

We at The Universal Key feel strongly that health is the ultimate gift you can give others and yourself.
