How to stay healthy: We are all living in a time of change, and health is uppermost in everyone’s minds. So how do we stay healthy?
We had an idea – and you can explore that idea in this article, and also see some of the suggested GOOD HEALTH products in our STORE
Despite our Feel-Good gifts, Get Well Soon presents, Gifts for Caring, Presents for Friendship and Jewellery with Soul, we believe that some of the best health and wellness products and gifts are not actually “products” at all – they are more akin to procedures or practices . . promoting a positive attitude or approach to good health.
Following this principle we developed our Health Band Bracelets as specific items to encourage healthy lifestyle and wellness routines . . as products to remind you to stick to these routines and so be healthier (and stay healthier).
Of course, there are lots of things that can affect our health and wellness, not least having good finances and social relationships, career satisfaction, belonging to a community and having a sense of purpose in life. In addition, diet, fitness, exercise, a healthy environment with low pollution, and getting sufficient rest are important too – as is avoiding infectious diseases, bacteria, viruses and so on.
With this in mind, we decided to develop an everyday product that reminds us to live a health life – not a “health product” per se, but a product for good health that can act a prompt for good health wishes and goals: The bracelet doesn’t make you more healthy in itself . . it merely represents good health principles – acting as an aide-memoire to adhere to these principles and follow a healthy lifestyle where possible.
So, from our point of view, the six best health and wellness products or trends / ideas for 2021 are:
1. Stay as fit as pos – take regular exercise
2. Eat well – making sure you get all the nutrients and vitamins you need
3. Reduce stress – including relaxation exercises or meditation
4. Get enough sleep and rest
5. Be health conscious and aware
6. Remind yourself to do all the above!
In other words . . gift yourself a health band bracelet! And here are six examples of our best health and wellness products for 2021:

Maintaining a healthy outlook on life
Our health band bracelets are perfect in this respect. They sit on the wrist throughout the day and constantly prod us to:
- Eat a healthily and well (with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables)
- Take physical activity (3 or 4 days a week)
- Keep stress to a minimum (where possible)
- Cut back on alcohol consumption (and try to quit smoking)
- Be in touch with our friends, family and the local community
- Be positive!
How to stay healthy – with a Health Band!
The World Health Organisation (WHO) says: Keep to your good health routines as much as possible and maintain a daily schedule of sleeping, meals and healthy activities. Stay socially connected. Speak to loved ones and people you trust as much as possible, do common hobbies together and share your feelings. Be physically active. Reduce long periods of sitting and set up an exercise routine.
Our health band bracelets do just that! They remind us of our healthy routine – and to try to stick to it. They might not keep you healthy – per se, but when worn on the wrist they are a continual reminder of the concept of good health, and to adhere to the principles of a healthy lifestyle wherever possible.
Other WHO advice says: Avoid foods that are high in salt or sugar, and eat fresh and unprocessed foods to get the vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, protein and antioxidants your body needs. Drink plenty of water too, because adequate hydration is also important.
Some people have said that they feel healthier whilst wearing one of our health band bracelets and although this is probably a placebo effect, it is undoubtedly true that there is power in a thought made positive by a health-based item such as this – encouraging good health and wellness practices at all times.
Our good health products for you – what exactly is a Health Band Bracelet?
Our Health Bands are decorative bracelets of various styles and patterns made of nylon or cotton thread using a type of macrame knotting that can be traced back more than 2000 years to the country of Tibet around 500 BC. In some ways the health band resembles a friendship bracelet; however, our health bands are much tougher: They may feel a bit hard when first put on, but since the idea of the bracelet is to be a “reminder on the wrist”, that is no bad thing. Its ultimate purpose will have been fulfilled: To support and promote a healthy lifestyle / mindset, and stay healthy and safe.
