emotional wellness gift
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth…
Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we’re inundated with urgent messages of scarcity and time pressure.
But no matter how tempting these “deals” may be, you still have the freedom to make your own gifting choices this season.
Consider gifting experiences and/or resources that promote emotional wellness!
Today we’re sharing our 2019 emotional wellness gift guide, filled with ideas to support the health and well-being of you and every person on your list:
1. Self-care apps
We’re on our devices everyday, so why not seize the opportunity to give the gift of portable self-care, right there on your loved ones’ phone or tablet? (Check out our reviews of some favorite apps here and here.)
2. Personal development books
Wandering through the self-help section of a bookstore can kick up feelings of self-consciousness and even overwhelm. But, a thoughtfully chosen book is a wonderful way to help someone on your list deepen their own personal development.
3. Gratitude tools
4. Relaxation aids
We often don’t realize how tightly-wound we are until we begin experiencing the physical and emotional effects of chronic stress. Help the folks on your list be proactive by building relaxation into their everyday routine.
5. Relationship resources
Whether it’s the newly-engaged couple next door or your relatives celebrating their golden anniversary… there’s no wrong time to focus on the health of a relationship.
