Today is National Women’s Health and Fitness Day!

Image

I know that when the weather gets chillier and the days get shorter, I sometimes struggle to keep my health and exercise routine. But what better day to decide to get out there than National Women’s Health & Fitness Day? Check out the tips below to get started. Plus, our merchants have all the gear and gadgets you need to actually be excited for exercise time!

1)      Walk! Grab some comfortable sneakers, like these durable, ultra-lightweight Nike sneakers, on sale for $109.99 and get moving! If the weather’s nice, walk instead of taking public transit. If you find your energy draining after lunch, walk around the office.

2)      Develop a routine. Get into a schedule, and stick to it!  I’ve always found that going to the gym right after work works for me, as there is less of a chance of losing motivation by making a pit stop at home. Try getting a gym bag like this Nike duffle bag from Macy’s, so you’ll have your gear with you during the day. It’s water repellent, sturdy, and can also be used for weekend trips.

3)      Inhale the fresh air. No matter how busy you are, spending even five minutes outside breathing in the fresh air can have amazingly beneficial effects on mind and body. With the air getting chillier, be sure you have a warm jacket, like this North Face women‘s thermoball jacket, which is available in an array of vibrant colors and has the warmth of 600 fill-down.

The weather may be chillier, but it’s great for exercising! So get out there, and be sure to shop through K12Rewards to get everything you need, and earn cash for your school, to boot!

‘Tis the Season for Pumpkins and Spice!

Image

I always love the time of year when the seasons change, as each season offers something special to enjoy and appreciate. And what better way to take advantage of the fiery colors and cold, crisp air of fall than by decorating your home and yard to match? Luckily, K12Rewards merchants like Home Depot and Cost Plus Word Market make it easy to turn your house into a warm and inviting home for these cooler months.

No fall home is complete without an autumn wreath! Be sure to check out Home Depot for a vast assortment of seasonal wreathes, like this hand-crafted dried floral wreath in carmel sunset. It’s the perfect accent to any room, and it’ll be a proud accompaniment to your fall collection for years to come!

If small accents here and there are more your style, Cost Plus World Market offers a dizzying collection of trinkets to provide style and warmth to your home and put a smile on your face, like the pumpkin casserole baker, with a festive autumnal design and sturdy handles for easy serving. For an authentic taste of the season, don’t miss this pumpkin spice pancake mix, made with rich pumpkin and spice, and guaranteed to help you ease into your day with smiles and warmth.

Fall is one of the best times of year for food and home decorating, and we hope you’ll embrace it along with us. And the best part is, when you shop through K12Rewards, you’ll earn rewards for your school with every purchase you make!
