Most holidays don’t have healthy connotations—it’s a day to indulge and not feel guilty after all! But there are ways to make this special day for Mom just a little bit healthier, and even if you only implement one of these ideas into the day, you’ll feel that much better by the end of the celebration.
Make a nutritious brunch
Nothing says Mother’s Day morning like bringing a tray of Mom’s favorite brunch foods to her in bed (made all the more complete accompanied by one of these colorful printable cards), but brunch doesn’t have to only include crispy bacon and buttermilk pancakes. Switch out some of those unhealthy staples with a stack of chocolate protein pancakes, frittata bites, and guilt-free muffins.
Go for a nature stroll
If you don’t have access to a trail, lace up your sneakers and take Mom on a walk around the neighborhood! Leave phones at home and simply enjoy your time together, all while getting some low-impact exercise in.
Give the gift of wellness
An essential oil diffuser, along with a couple key essential oils, is just the thing to give on Mother’s Day. There are many benefits to aromatherapy, including decreasing stress levels and providing a more restful sleep, both things that Mom could benefit from.
Give the gift of a clean home
Before your Mom wakes up, or maybe late the night before, surprise her with a spick-and-span home! Anything from organizing a cluttered spot to doing a deep clean of the kitchen will ensure that she’ll wake up to a fresher interior.
Take a virtual garden tour
You may have heard of virtual museum tours going on right now, but the same can be said for some of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Think: Claude Monet’s garden in Normandy or England’s famous Kew Gardens. Even touring these beautiful gardens online is a great way to feel refreshed.
Mother’s Day may feel a little different this year, but by celebrating with these wellness-inspired ideas, it’s sure to put a smile on Mom’s face.
