No matter how many resolutions one has on their list every year, one remains constant - the one to live a healthier, more active life in the new year. How about you help your friends stick to that resolution this year by giving them some of these gifts?
1. For the one who always forgets to hydrate
In a country like India that is hot and humid almost all year round in some parts, not drinking enough water is a bigger comeuppance to oneself than most other things. Water is necessary and there's no excuse good enough for when you forget to drink plenty of it. Here's a gift perfect for someone who needs to drink a lot more water than they do - a water bottle with a meter. Why not get your friend a bottle that lets you monitor your daily water consumption? You know they'll be grateful.
2. For the one who's trying to lose weight
Losing weight can be very hard for some. Especially when the very thought of eating clean makes you think of boiled chicken and broccoli for months to come. It doesn't have to be all bad, though. How about gifting a friend that's trying to lose weight without losing his/her taste buds a box of delicious high protein, low carb snacks? You'd be surprised at how many things you can find in the market. Even a box of dark chocolate with 70% or above cocoa serves as an excellent substitute for those perennially battling sugar cravings - and its benefits are abundant. Don't make your friend wait around for those cheat Sunday brunches to taste some yum food.
3. For the one who's always sore
Being sore, whether after a workout or due to the lack of it can cause major anxiety. It hampers one's ability to be able to do many things which you normally would be able to do in a jiffy. How about gifting your friend in need a massage stick? It can help release muscular pain and irritation through the body and the best part is it helps you massage yourself even when no one else can.
4. For the one who doesn't move around enough
Know someone who sits at their work desk all day and will only move when their bladder is about to burst? Yes, well, we have something you should definitely consider giving them -- an activity tracker band. While tracker bands are not the most innovative gifts, given how popular the devices are, they definitely seem to be working to motivate people to take their fitness more seriously. Perhaps the number of steps on the dial or the vibration it'll give out when there's less than a desirable amount of activity will get your friend moving.
5. For the one who never wants to skip a workout
Have a friend who just started working out and is trying really hard not to fall off the fitness bandwagon with all the preoccupations and distractions of December? It's easy to slip up, with all the holidays, travelling and weddings this season. You know what your friend needs? A skipping rope with weights. That's right. Find your friend a rope that comes with adjustable weighted ropes and is compact enough to carry around anywhere. Strength and cardio requirements can both be fulfilled.
