The Best Mother's Day Gift? Health and Happiness.
This Sunday, millions of families across the United States will celebrate one of the most important people in one’s life – their mother. Breakfasts-in-bed will be served, flowers will be ordered and mothers everywhere will reap the attention they deserve every day -- not just one Sunday each year in May.
How about this Mother’s Day – instead of the flowers and cards and jewelry—how about giving your mother the gift of health and happiness? It’s free and the benefits will last far longer than any tangible gift. We know that women who regularly participate in physical activity are better mothers, partners, employees and friends. They are healthier not just in mind, but in body and spirit. They are stronger and fitter; they live longer, more active lives. And who doesn’t want their mother around for as long as she possibly can be?
So this Sunday, go on a walk with your mom. Play a game of tennis or get the bikes out for a cruise. Even the simplest of activities that gets your mom moving is a gift that will keep on giving. And we bet the time you spend being active together will be some of the most special and memorable of your lives.
