Healthy Holiday Gifts for 2020

Having trouble figuring out gifts for 2020?

2020 has been a roller coaster year. This pattern of not knowing what comes next keeps our nervous system in a fight-or-flight mode, not giving our bodies time to ‘relax and recover’.

When you have a heightened nervous system for prolonged periods of time, it is hard for the body to keep up.

At a certain point, the body will start saying ‘no’. It might say no in these forms:
– Headaches
– Fatigue
– Lack of motivation
– Stomach aches
– Neck/shoulder and back pain
– Old injuries aching
– Difficulty breathing

During these times, it is important to give ourselves space. A space to breathe.
As a sign of showing your loved ones that you care, giving them tools to help strengthen their breathing is not a bad idea. Not only will their nervous system thank them, but it is the PERFECT thing to work on against the Coronavirus pandemic.

Here are some example natural breathing tools you can give someone.

1. Breathe Right Nasal Strips
For those that have difficulty breathing in and out of the nose, these nasal strips may help open up the airway. As a bonus, maybe a better night’s sleep and less snoring 🙂

2. XLEAR Nasal Spray

3. Expand-a-lung Breathing Exerciser
Let’s strengthen those lungs through some resistance breathing! If you know you or a loved one have low lung capacity, this is a GREAT way to train your lungs.

4. Inspirometer
If you are a person who needs to see that you are making progress, get a hospital grade inspirometer. They help you measure your strength, which helps you keep track of your progress. Perfect for those that like to keep track!
