It's that time of the year when we stress about, er, take joy in, buying gifts for others. But what to get for those trying so hard to develop good healthy habits? Fret not! We have procured a list of healthy, good habit-forming gifts that are safe and doctor-approved. Let's get to it:
White Flower Farms for the best online plant selection.
Nike Fuelband also monitors your daily activity and translates that into energy spent. It counts your steps and uses an accelerometer to calculate your level of exertion. It then syncs with your mobile device wirelessly and can give you daily reports about how you've done. If you also want to keep an eye on your shut-eye the Fitbit One Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker also monitors your sleep cycle and can actually be set to wake you at the optimal point in the cycle so that you'll srise feeling well-rested and ready to go.
Circulation, the journal of the American Heart Association, it was previously reported that moderate intake of alcoholic beverages (1 to 2 drinks per day) is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease in populations. That's good! We can use that evidence-based data for a great gift idea. Why not support the local wineries of NJ and grab 2007 Unionville Red Montage Big O, which has won multiple national awards and the distinction of Best Wine in NJ from the Star Ledger and Tastings.com. Or, go to your local store and pick up a bottle of red wine for a friend. Remember though, the benefits only exist in moderate intake!
From all of us at CCNM, have a Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, and a Healthy New Year!!
