There’s nothing better than opening your front door to a package filled with a special surprise every week (or month). Especially when it’s one of the many new subscription boxes that’s customized to your personality, food preferences and favorite fitness trends.
Whether your goal is to set yourself up for meal planning success, take up running or become more eco-conscious in the New Year, these care packages can give you a jumpstart and make living a healthy lifestyle a little more convenient. Bundled with the latest health food products, natural beauty products and fitness gear, subscription boxes are a great way to reward yourself and stay motivated to reach your goals. Instead of searching high and low for a grocery store that sells those Paleo snacks you love, order up a monthly delivery. Have an upcoming trail race or camping trip? Check your monthly supply of energy chews and bars.
Here are eight subscription boxes that will make that journey to wellness a little bit easier. Gift one to family and friends for the holidays, or treat yo’self — because nothing feels better than putting your health first!
