For this Valentine’s Day keep the heart healthy while showing love to that special someone. Partners can show they care by investing some quality time with these three activities that will show their love, satisfy the palate, and relieve stress.
Cook a Healthy Meal
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular nights of the year to dine out. Instead, skip the crowd and whip up a healthy home cooked meal. It’s not only very thoughtful, but could help avoid some medical bills. One study revealed that people who ate at home were more likely to eat more nutritiously. More nutrition means better health. When dining out at restaurants there’s no telling how nutritious the food is or the ingredients used to make it. High sodium, MSG, and saturated fats threaten heart health and maybe even couples’ relationship. Instead of partner’s contributing to each other’s high blood pressure or weight issue, load up on some fruits, veggies, and lean proteins and put a flavorful twist on it. To make it easy, here is a Valentine’s Day recipe developed by Flax Seasoning, to make all of that healthy stuff taste oh so good: http://flaxseasoning.com/product/featured-recipe.
Depending on the part of the country, the weather on Valentine’s Day can be a little chilly. That’s certainly no reason couples should not experience the benefits of walking outside. A brisk 30 minute walk will promote mental well-being, reduce the risk of osteoarthritis, and improve heart health. Couples who walk together will not only make the activity more fun, but it will also allow them additional bonding time and provide some much needed fresh air. They may even discover new places in their area. This is a great way to get some exercise and increase the intimacy level in the relationship.
Give a Massage
On Valentine’s Day couples need to relax. What better way to do that than to give a massage? Even though massaging has been around for thousands of years, its popularity still continues to increase as more and more people are realizing its health benefits. Studies have shown that massages help relieve depression and anxiety, as well as back pain, headaches, and muscle fatigue. With the pressures of work, family, and society taking its toll, couples should set aside some time on the 14th to give each other a massage and help relieve stress.
So get started today; use Flax Seasoning’s recipe to start a romantic night, lace those shoes up for an evening stroll together, and get those hands ready to massage. It’s a great way to improve health and strengthen relationships this Valentine’s Day.
