There can be some work involved in getting everyone to the gym, park or pool (possibly a bit of an understatement!). Is it really worth all the effort? We think so! Incorporating proper exercise and nutrition practices into the very fabric of family life is hugely beneficial. The process of incorporation starts with the grown-ups – this is because children learn their parent’s health habits as examples.
- Lead by example
We know that showing the right way to behave (in this case, fitness habits) is a powerful way to get the message across – especially with children. When they see the value you put on health and wellness, they will often be motivated to do the same!
What better way to keep yourself accountable to your own fitness goals, than to enlist the help of your family? Getting everyone on the same page, with similar goals towards better health and wellness, means you’ll have to follow through – even on those days you really don’t feel like it!
- Quality time
Many of us are “time poor”. For our families, this means that quality time together can often be hard to come by. However, we believe exercise is important enough to warrant a place on the family must-do list! Get in your workouts and strengthen the bond between you and your loved ones.
- New Family Adventures
Working out as a family may end up taking you to awesome, new places you might have never visited. Whether it is hiking up a mountain, exploring historical sites or spots of outstanding natural beauty, or putting on roller blades again for the first time in years – your quest to find new ways to exercise together can turn into an adventure! And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t like a little more adventure in life?
Have you ever wished for a little more harmony and a little less stress for your family? Increasing everyone’s active time might help. There are so many studies linking increased physical activity to decreased stress, we could fill up this blog post with them alone! What better reason to head to the beach or slopes this weekend?
