Why Healthy Gift?
We are all on a downward health spiral, with so many lifestyle diseases on the rise, coupled by our bad eating habits and decreased physical activity. Weight troubles, uncontrolled blood sugars, hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiency, low immunity, muscle weakness, dwindling stamina, and a slew of other ailments wreak havoc on our day-to-day lives for the majority of us.
When it comes to our health, we all want to live a better life, but we can't always take the initial step. Health is often pushed to the bottom of our priority list due to time constraints, lack of awareness, hectic schedules, deadlines, work-load, and completing duties. However, during Rakshabandhan, you can help your sibling make positive changes in their lives and enhance their health and quality of life by giving them the best gift of all - the gift of health, because health is more valuable than everything else.
Ideas for Healthy Gifts
As the saying goes, you are what you eat; you are healthy if you eat healthy and full of junk if you eat junk. Switch to healthier snack options with excellent health advantages this Rakshabandhan instead of giving "fancy junk food." Swap out the swanky chocolate bars and other exotic junk for these few nutritious meal options to make your sibling healthy, wealthy, and wise this Rakshabandhan. So, with a few Mindful Gifting Ideas, let's see how you can make this Raksha Bandhan a healthy and mindful one for your sibling.
Nuts are something that everyone enjoys. Because of their crispy texture and delicious flavours, nuts make an excellent snack. This year, you can choose from a wide variety of nuts to give to your sibling. Nuts are an excellent choice for your Raksha Bandhan gift box because they are high in nutrients, antioxidants, protein, and fibre.
If you look closely, nature has provided us with its own healthier version of desserts and sweet treats in the form of fruits. They're sweet, nutrient-dense, and high in antioxidants, and they scream health in every way. A basket full of colourful fruits is the healthiest gift you can give your sibling, and it will sweeten your love and care for them.
Fruits have a short shelf life and are difficult to pack and ship, which is where dried fruits come in. They provide the same health benefits and nutrients as fruits, but with the added benefit of a longer shelf life, easier storage, and portability. Because they contain clean, natural energy, they are ideal for healthy snacking and are a must-have in any kitchen.
If you think nuts and dried fruits are too old-fashioned, don't worry; you can make your Raksha Bandhan gift healthier by including a box of healthy snack bars. Snack bars, also known as energy bars, are the latest craze in the health industry, and they are Super Healthy in every way. The energy bars or snack bars are made with all natural, healthy ingredients such as oats, whole grain cereals, granola, nuts, dried fruits, fruits, seeds, and so on, making your gift truly healthy and your sibling's Rakshabandhan a Healthy Rakshabandhan. Snack bars are a great way to show your sibling that eating healthy can be enjoyable and delicious.
A fitness tracker, also known as an activity tracker, is a device or software that monitors and tracks fitness-related metrics like distance walked or run, calorie consumption, and, in some cases, heartbeat and sleep quality. They are a type of wearable computer that are connected to a computer or smartphone and come in the form of smartwatches. These trackers can also be used to monitor patients' body temperature, heart rate, brain activity, muscle motion, and other vital data. You know your sibling better than anyone else, so you can pick a tracker for them based on their health goals, and lifestyle. A tracker will help your sibling be more aware of their health and motivate them to make positive changes in their lives, as well as help them stay on track.
Nutrition & Diet Consultation
The first step toward a healthy lifestyle is to begin eating well. When it comes to committing to a healthy lifestyle, diet counselling can go a long way, from overcoming nutritional deficiencies to boosting immunity, losing weight to gaining weight, fighting medical conditions to simply staying fit. With personalised diet guidance, you can learn about foods that harm and those that heal.
This Rakshabandhan, gift them health, happiness, and a good life. We wish you all a Happy Raksha Bandhan, or, to put it another way, a Healthy Raksha Bandhan!
