Mother's Day in 2013 is about feeling and looking great
(NC)—Here comes Mother's Day… Maybe you have no idea what to get her, maybe she won't like what you get her anyway; and maybe you're rushing to grab a last-minute card (and all the good ones are gone!). Showing mom how much you really appreciate her with the “perfect” gift is no small challenge— but no need to stress.
“As a mom I know it's great just to be thought of on that day by family,” says Helen Sherrard, president of the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA). “Mothers in 2013 are more health conscious than ever, they look great and feel great, and you can't go wrong getting them something that supports a healthy lifestyle on this special day.”
CHFA suggests there are a number of great “I love you mom” gifts to put a smile on mom's face that can promote vigor, health and longevity:
Fix a scrumptious organic meal— It's not only dad who can appreciate a hearty, tasty meal! Moms love to have dinner prepared for them. You can take it to the next level by using organic and local produce to create a delicious dinner, with reduced pesticides and fillers, leaving mom satisfied and feeling good.
Supplement her wellbeing— As children, mom is usually a solid “rock” for us — capable, strong and nurturing. As she gets a little older however, maybe she can benefit from a little extra support herself. Safe and effective natural health products (NHPs) are a valuable option to consider; and are taken regularly by more than 70 per cent of the Canadian population. A visit to your local natural health food retailer will provide you with helpful information about which NHPs can help moms concerns such as aching joints, bone health, stress relief and more. While it's always recommended to consult a health practitioner before adding something new to a health regime, you can share the information you gain with your mom or better yet, take her with you when you go.
Dance the night away – Maybe mom used to love to dance when she was younger, but with growing responsibilities and a busy work schedule, she can't seem to find the time or has lost interest. Why not reignite her love for dance by signing her up for a few one-hour dance classes in the community. Physical exercise stimulates muscles and music stimulates the mind. The way she'll feel when she's having fun will be priceless.
