Healthy Gifts: El Paso’s Chiropractic Team

Making and maintaining healthy lifestyle changes does not have to be as challenging when surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones who support those goals. Healthy gifts or the gift of wellness can be the real difference in improving one’s or another’s health this season. With the right health tools, individuals can make, see and feel the changes happening. Here is a list of a few of the best healthy holiday gifts to help your loved ones begin the New Year with a healthy perspective.Healthy Gifts: El Paso's Chiropractic Team

Healthy Gifts

Compact Treadmill and Walking Pad

Walking daily is an integral part of overall wellness. The body was designed to move, and walking about 8,000 steps daily has been shown to reduce all-cause mortality compared to sedentary lifestyles. Unfortunately, itโ€™s estimated that many individuals only walk around 5,000 steps daily.

  • Walking pads and compact treadmills allow the ability to incorporate more physical activity.
  • In inclement weather, they allow individuals to walk and complete a workout.
  • Smaller walking pads can be installed under a standing desk for easy and effective movement during the workday.

Top Blender

Individuals that take supplements could benefit from a high-quality, all-purpose blender.

  • A quality blender easily whips healthy smoothies, protein shakes, and other healthy beverages.
  • Athletes can incorporate protein powder into their drinks.
  • Certain high-tech blenders double as water infusers to reach hydration goals.

Percussive Massagers and Foam Roller Sets

Muscle recovery and maintaining flexibility are essential for body health. Recovery-specific tools can help immensely.

  • A personal percussive massager uses vibration therapy to keep the muscles loose and release endorphins.
  • Percussive massage treatment relieves soreness, stretches out the muscles, and improves flexibility and muscle strength in older individuals with sarcopenia or age-related muscle mass loss.
  • Self-myofascial release tools like foam rollers can help roll out sore muscles while improving range of motion and muscle strength.

Athletic Earbuds

Research from workout enthusiasts and athletes has shown that having the right music or podcast makes or breaks the workout or sport.

  • The research found that music can have an ergogenic effect on performance by increasing exercise duration and performance.
  • Sweat-free earbuds are recommended as they are designed specifically for athletes, increasing their comfort and staying in place during their entire workout, no matter how intense.

Air Fryer

Deep-fried foods can be full of unhealthy saturated fats and trans fats andย are associated with various health concerns, including cardiovascular issues and type 2 diabetes.

  • Air frying offers a healthier way to cook favorite foods, like fried chicken, French fries, fried vegetables, etc.
  • Air fryers rely on convection heat that circulates to crisp up the food.
  • This method is healthier than traditional frying methods.
  • A study found that air-frying French fries led to a reduced formation of potential food hazards versus deep-frying.
  • In addition, air frying can also be incorporated into baking or roasting.

Body Composition Scales

Body composition scales are recommended for achieving health and fitness goals.

  • These units can keep track of lean body mass, metabolism, and neuromuscular function.
  • They measure body fluid balance, muscle mass, and fat distribution.
  • They offer real metrics for current skeletal muscle mass.
  • Data points help individuals better understand their health.

Meditation Mats and Benches

Mental health is as vital as physical health.

  • Incorporating mindfulness and meditation exercises daily can improve mental and physical well-being and encourage long-term behavioral changes.
  • Regular meditation practice can help improve sleep quality, mood, and body repair and recovery from work, school, sports, workouts, etc.
  • Meditation mats and benches can make seated and kneeling meditation practices more comfortable.
