Your sweetheart may have the key to your heart, but a proper diet and regular physical activity can be the key to a healthy heart. This Valentine’s Day, indulge your sweetheart with a heart-healthy gift or date.
- Rather than tempting your beloved with chocolates, consider a gift that has more permanence. Search for a poem that describes your feelings and write it on beautiful paper for a handmade Valentine.
- Quality time is one of the most meaningful gifts. Bundle up and plan an active outing such as the beach, cycling, rainforest walk, or if you’re feeling adventurous, visit an indoor rock wall.
- If your children are having a Valentine’s Day party at their school or day care, instead of sending candies, consider mini-boxes of raisins, mini-bags of pretzels, pencils or stickers as tokens of their friendly affection.
- Cooking at home is an excellent way to control the quality and amounts of what you eat. Take a date to a local cooking class to practice your skills or learn a new technique.
- Prepare a romantic candlelit dinner at home using a healthy recipe.
- If you go to a restaurant to celebrate, check out their menu before dining out to make a sensible selection.
- Give to one another by giving back. Ask a date to volunteer with you at a local charity. Giving back is a healthy habit that will boost your mood and beat stress.
- Use this day as an opportunity to tell your loved one how you feel about hime or her, and share ways that you can support each other’s health and wellness.
- Still craving something sweet? Send a fruit basket to your loved one that has natural sugar as well as healthy nutrients instead of sending sweets with added sugars.
