Take a break from the old standard, and let HealthView offer a few ways to pamper yourself and your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with gifts that won’t leave you with regret or wilting flowers a week later.
Massage Therapy Gift Certificate
If you or your partner are active – you know how tight and tense your muscles can get. Sometimes a massage is just the perfect solution to ease a tired body and mind. Not only is it a great way to relax, but it could increase his/her performance in the gym. If you aren’t as active as you like, a massage by an RMT will help to loosen those muscles and make you feel a thousand times better! A HealthView gift certificate is the perfect solution for it! Our Registered Massage Therapists will find the best way to ease those aching muscles! Why not consider a couples massage? You could BOTH walk out feeling relaxed and energized. Call us at 905-634-VIEW to find out how you can get one!
Now, this is only meant with the best intentions! For a lot of people, fitness trackers are a good way to monitor your journey and help you understand just how active you are. They don’t have to be expensive – and can assist you in keeping “track” of your steps, calories burned and even the amount of restful sleep you are getting.
A Romantic (But Healthy) Dinner
Consider something as simple as a nice meal – prepared at home. Perhaps something a little more special than the usual fare though. Some nutritionists suggest you go “lean & green” – meaning a meal consisting of a lean protein like salmon or flank steak, coupled with some broccoli, green beans or cauliflower.
Couples Yoga Class
The couple that stretches together – stays together? Studies show that yoga can increase your flexibility, strength and cardiovascular function. It can also improve your mood – which is NEVER a bad thing, especially when the February blues start to set in.
Go Ice Skating
Sure it can be cold outside, but there is no better time to find a local skating rink and take part in a great low impact workout together! Make sure you stretch beforehand, and dress according to the conditions – but its a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and each others company. And afterwards – make sure you grab some hot chocolate with a few extra marshmallows!
