healthy holiday gift guide

The other day my friend suggested that I create a healthy living resource list. Family, friends, and health coaching clients often send me a text or email asking for recommendations on certain products. All of the gift ideas on the list are items that I use. You will recognize many of the products from my Instagram stories. I trust this healthy holiday gift guide ignites a passion for lifestyle soulful healthy living.

Lifestyle soulful healthy living is a lifestyle that you cultivate so that you can serve God and others from a place of health and wellness. It’s not a fad or trend; it’s a daily practice. And yes, at times, you may feel like you are swimming against the current. But, if you nestle yourself in a community that offers support and resources, then you can flourish in this lifestyle.

As you scroll through the gift guide, think of family members or friends who want to kickstart a healthy life.
