Since it is the season of giving, how about giving to yourself! We are all so busy buying gifts for all our loved ones but how about the gift of good health for ourselves? Here are some great gifts you can give yourself this holiday season:

1. The gift of healthy food. Not just to look better in your favorite jeans but to feel better. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and healthy fats will provide your body with what it needs to stay active and healthy.
2. The gift of a strong body. Exercise is not only important for keeping in shape but also for a strong heart, strong bones and a strong immune system.
3. The gift of peace. It's important to limit stress in your life. Take a few minutes each day just to breath.
4. The gift of friendship. Make sure to surround yourself with the people you love.
5. The gift of laughter. Find something that makes you smile everyday.
6. The gift of thanks. Be thankful for everything you have.
7. The gift of acceptance. It's important to accept yourself for who you are and make healthy changes that are right for you.

I hope all of you have a wonderful, safe and healthy holiday!!!!
