When we think of Valentine’s Day, we think of wine,flowers, chocolates, cards, and plenty of kisses. A great valentines is all of those things, but you can give your loved one some fit – inspired gifts as well. These aren’t just inspiring, but also motivating. I always think that fit – inspired gifts are the best, because they will be a forever gift , unlike wine which will eventually get drank, and chocolates which will eventually get ate. Here are some of my great gift ideas for your significant other.
– massage gift certificate. Who doesn’t like a massage? Better yet, look at the massage benefits to your health. Boosts immunity, decreases stress levels. Those are some amazing benefits.
–personal training sessions- this would truly help in the motivating department. Some people do not want to take the time to go workout, but if it’s bought , then that just pushes them a bit. Right?
–fit bit tracker- this is one of my favorites, and not only does it help you concentrate on your steps, but also challenges you a bit. These are the best, and very motivating. I think this is the perfect gift.
–couples getaway- times are busy these days, and for some couples they feel it’s just as busy to take the time to plan the vacation, so it gets put to the back burner. Go ahead and plan that spontaneous trip. Believe me, you both deserve it.
–meal delivery service. They have so many great delivery services out there, that will deliver your choice of healthy meals, and will save you the time of cooking. You can even get just a three day on some. This is a great gift to give also.
One of the best parts of living is the flow of energy that surrounds all of us. It’s unique yes, but it’s up to us to choose the type of energy that we want around us. Positive energy comes in many different forms , from meditation & deep breathing, mindful thinking, ect.. But most of all , it comes from letting go. Letting go of what you THINK you should be doing, to doing what you WANT to be doing, and doing the things and experimenting with the things you like. We sometimes can find our selves at the end of the week, realizing that first.. The week is coming to a halt, and second, that the things you wanted to get done, or do were never put in place. It’s all about balance, and being mindful of the time we have, and how we want to utilize it. You get more satisfaction and happiness when you do things you enjoy to do.
Shifting focus on the accomplishing goals or tasks that you really WANT to do , should be your top priority. Taking time out of your day or evening to go do something that you have been wanting , is so important in the quest for living mindfully. What takes away our positive energy or flow is monotonous schedules, crazy chaos, which I call lather, rinse, and repeat. We get so caught up in chaos that it can strip away our energy , and turn it into many different things. It’s so important that what and who we put around us, radiates our energy to a high degree, and keeping it positive is all up to us. Some ways to keep that positive energy around- be thankful everyday for your blessings, plan to do more things each week that you absolutely love, ( each day that goes by, is one more day you missed out on doing it), spend more time with the friends and family that you love), stay heathy and exercise)( proven fact that working out and eating better makes us happier), give more to the needy, make a donation to your favorite charity, ( it’s always good to give back), practice being proud of all the accomplishments you’ve had, send your family a nice card. These are all ways that keep positive energy around us. Remember.. Always take time to relax. I feel people these days do not do that enough because of the crazy schedules. Last but not least… Breathe!!!
