Let’s be honest... being healthy has never been more important.
Whether you have a specific goal in mind for the new year, or you just generally want to take better care of your body (because pandemic), we’ve lined up some gifts to set you up for success.
Health and fitness is a sensitive topic for a lot of people, and it doesn’t help that we constantly see seemingly “perfect” bodies on social media.
The key to setting productive health and fitness goals is to come at it from a place of self-love. You are beautiful. Your body has already done so many amazing things, and it is worthy of your care and attention.
If you approach your health goals from a place of self-loathing, it will be harder to find the motivation to actually achieve those goals. After all, if you hate your body why would you bother taking care of it?
And remember, taking small steps is perfectly okay, and it might even work better for some people! It’s better to take small steps towards healthy habits than to push yourself and then completely give up a few weeks in.
Alright, with those little motivational nuggets out of the way, let’s get to the goods!
Read on for four gifts for a healthy body in 2021.
Get in touch with your body:
Get in touch with your body’s needs by understanding how healthy you are right now, with the Fossil Gen5e Smartwatch. This beautiful watch has all of the health and fitness bells and whistles that traditional fitness watches do, but on a beautiful Fossil watch design.
It can measure health metrics like heart health, and even tracks how well you’re sleeping. Logging exercises is a breeze, and of course it counts your steps.
Besides being a fitness powerhouse, the Fossil 5e has all the other typical smartwatch capabilities, like notifications and calendar features. It’s even voice activated and it runs on Google, so you know it’ll play nice with your other devices!

Break a sweat
Peloton is one of the biggest names in home fitness for a reason: Their equipment is top notch, and their classes are super motivational.
The Peloton bike has everything you need to push yourself to the max (in a good way). The four figure price tag might make you want to cry, but Peloton has monthly payment options that makes it no more expensive than that gym membership you have.
And unlike the gym membership that you forget about until you see your bill, the bike stands proud in your house as a constant reminder to get your money’s worth and get in shape!
You can still get the benefits of Peloton’s award winning exercise classes, even if you’re not able to swing the investment for a bike. With Peloton memberships you can join the Peloton community and keep yourself fit all year round.

Feed your body, feed your soul
Eating healthy is easy, right? You just have to figure out how to fit 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of veggies into your diet… Every. Single. Day.
Or you can power through your morning routine by dumping some fruit into a blender with some oat milk. The Vitamix Ascend blender will make delicious and nutritious smoothies in less time than it takes you to heat up your REAL liquid breakfast: Coffee.
The Vitamix isn’t just a one-use appliance. You can use it to pulverize vegetables into soup. It’s still healthy if you add a bunch of butter and cream, right?

Supplement for success
Newsflash! You’re probably not getting all the vitamins you need every day, and it can be really hard to get it all in through food.
Why not? Well, the average person today spends more time inside, eats like crap and is exposed to tons of pollutants every day.
Our bodies need more good stuff in order to run like a well oiled machine.
Taking vitamins is a small step you can take to make sure your body is getting everything it needs. As you work towards building healthier habits you might be able to cut down on the vitamins.
But have you ever walked into a Rite Aid? It’s almost impossible to figure out what vitamin(s) work best for you. There are so many options and so many big words, it’s enough to give anyone a headache.
Care/of does the figuring out for you. All you have to do is fill out a quiz and they send you your personalized vitamins. You don’t even have to keep track of what pills to take when; they’re all packaged by day. Just open the pouch and swallow!

With these four gifts you’ll be setting yourself up for a healthy and fit new year. Remember: Be kind to your body!
