Every which way you look online around Mother’s Day, the same messages proclaiming you should “Shower Mom with Love!” accompanied by images of diamond necklaces or glittery bracelets continuously pop up on your screen. Although those gifts may be thoughtful, have you considered gifting mom something that can benefit her health instead?
Encourage a healthy, active lifestyle by spending time together doing an activity that combines wellness and fun. There are countless ways to be active with mom—from exploring the mountains near NoCo to walking the streets of downtown Loveland.
If you need a few new, health-conscious ideas this Mother’s Day, check out these options.
Do some mother-daughter/son yoga
Whether you’re an experienced yogi or have no experience at all, find your zen in a yoga class that will help you both relax your mind and body.
Gift her a massage
If you aren’t able to spend quality time with your mom, gifting her a massage might be the perfect thing.
Whether it be for leisure or to help with that tweaked body part that’s been bothering her, let our experienced medical massage therapist work on those tissues to help her feel brand new!
Go on a hike or outside picnic
We’re lucky to live in such a beautiful, sunshine-filled state! There are plenty of gorgeous spots perfect for an afternoon picnic.
Find a fun spot that captures natures’ beauty. Pack up a healthy lunch and treat your journey with a yummy picnic.
Go for a swim
Come to our rejuvenating saltwater pools and swim a few laps or take an aquatics class and get those joints moving again. Studies show that swimming is excellent for joint pain relief, not to mention, it’s an excellent workout!
Cheer on the Rockies
Does your mom like to cheer on and root-root-root-root for the home team?! The Colorado Rockies are playing at Coors Field Mother’s Day weekend.
Grab a couple of tickets, pack a few healthy snacks, and get ready for a picture-perfect Colorado day.
Host a game night with the whole family
It’s always beneficial to have some family fun while challenging the brain. Gather the family, pick out a few games, and have yourselves an evening in.
Pro Tip: Select a healthy recipe to make for dinner and cook together before you play games!
Cook her favorite meal
Whether you’re working together to cook something delicious or showing her your excellent culinary skills, challenge yourself to add in those healthier options.
Make this Mother’s Day the best yet by giving her the best gift you can give your mother: quality time together. Plus, leading a healthy lifestyle is always better (and more fun!) if you do it together.
