Cornerstone’s Health and Wellness Gifts for Mother’s Day

The groundwork of all happiness is good health. ~ James Leigh Hunt

When thinking of gifts for mom, usually the first things that pop to mind are flowers, jewelry and chocolate.  As a mom myself, I’ve always enjoyed receiving any of those things (especially chocolate!).  But, I don’t really need them. If I’m honest with myself, one thing I really do need is more time, especially time for myself.  Most moms are so busy working, managing a household and taking care of other people that they often don’t have much time left to take care of themselves.  This year, why not consider giving mom a gift that really matters – some time to focus on her own health and wellness.

The other day, I was sitting in the car while my husband was getting a coffee at WaWa, and it occurred to me that I really needed to stretch more. Intense workouts and age have been conspiring to tighten up my muscles and I decided I needed to find a yoga class – fast.

Did you know that most people stick with the same exercise routine for months, if not years? Not only can this get really boring really quick, but it’s also not the best for your body or your results.

The term “cross training” simply means practicing/training in two or more types of exercise. For example, if you are an avid runner, cross training would mean you would also incorporate other activities like biking, swimming, strength training etc. But why is this so important to do?
