The December holidays are a wonderful time of year. We get to see family and friends that we may not always see, take some time off work, and enjoy giving and receiving presents.
The holidays can also be stressful because of all the time we spend shopping, traveling, cooking, cleaning, etc. Stress = not healthy.
What presents will you be purchasing this year? The new iPad? Clothes? Jewelry? Doesn’t everybody already have more than enough of that stuff?
Has someone close to you recently mentioned needing a healthy change in their life?
I want to encourage you this year to consider giving the gift of health. This can be a small gift like buying your boyfriend a subscription to Men’s Health magazine or purchasing the P-90X DVDs and committing to using them with him four times per week.
This has the added bonus of being the perfect time. January 1st, 2011 is right around the corner and I’m a BIG believer in setting and following through on New Year’s resolutions. This year my resolution was to eat at least one piece of fruit per day (success!) and in 2011 it’ll be to cut my beer intake in half! 🙂
Empower employs an outstanding group of personal trainers, nutritionists, massage therapists, and group exercise instructors. These people are here to assist you and your health is our top priority. Gift cards are available for purchase in the studio or online here.
