Father’s Day is almost here! Why not thank Dad with a gift the can benefit his health? Here are some of our recommendations:
Excercise Tracker/Heart Rate Monitor:
Give Dad the ability to track his health! Get him a wearable technology gadget that can track his sleep, exercise activity, caloric intake, and heart rate. Being able to see his health results everyday can keep him accountable and on the right track for healthy habits!
Want to get Dad moving? Why not gift him tennis, yoga, martial arts, or dance lessons to keep him active and focused? He might be able to teach you to Tango afterward!
Gift Basket of Nuts
Dads love to snack…and what better to snack on while watching his favorite TV show or sports program then a handful of nuts? Nuts are a great healthy snack full of protein, fiber, essential fats, and other heart-healthy substances! (Face it: it’s much healthier than that tub of popcorn that seems to show up every holiday season!)
Give the Gift of Relaxation
We all know what a stressful day and age this can be for Dad. Help him de-stress and unwind by giving him the gift of relaxation. Ensure he gets a great night’s sleep by buying him an ergonomic/memory foam pillow that can cushion his joints and relieve pressure. Another idea is to get him a hammock where he can take a nap in the great outdoors or read his favorite book. Or, for the ultimate relaxation, get Dad a gift certificate for a massage. The Mayo Clinic says that “studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension”.
Give the Gift of Healthy Air
Air pollution outside, allergy triggers, pet dander, dust mites, mold, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) all can hinder the air quality your Dad breathes while in the safe haven of his home. Give him the gift of clean air and help him breathe easier with a high-quality air purifier. Air purifiers that use a combination of better-than-HEPA filtration, ionization and germ-neutralizing technologies can make a huge difference in the air quality of a home, both in the way it smells and how it affects the people breathing it.
