Keep your child Healthy with Movement

header-2

Beside the busy schedule, some changes in interests often occur among school-age children. Not all of them will be athletic and also, their commitment and preferences may be affected by various factors. This makes promoting an active lifestyle trickier, which is why it’s essential to find the right activities to keep your children active.

We all know that having an active lifestyle should be one of the things we should prioritize. Even if schedules are getting hectic during school years, ensure that your children get a few hours of exercise each week.

This will keep everyone in the family healthy. However, staying healthy and physically active can be difficult at times. This is especially true with children since it gets more challenging once they go to school. Also, they have less time to spend on activities such as exercise.

Just like every child, your little ones are probably very busy with school, but that doesn’t mean that they have to be deprived of physical activity. Here are some tips to keep your busy children active:
Stretching Exercises

 

Designate Chores For Your Child to Help Stay Active

Some household chores that involve additional movement may promote physical activity. Examples of these include sweeping, mopping, polishing the floor, raking leaves, and more. Designate these tasks to children who are less active and those who are not engaged in sports. This is one way for them to get some exercise and increase their heart rates.

Take Breaks from Homework and Move

Remember, having a break is also necessary because this helps refresh one’s mind after long hours of work.
Sitting and working on a computer or reading and writing for long hours can also make you as tired as working out for extended periods. Encourage your children to care for their eyes by looking away from the screen after every 20 minutes. Let them get up and move around or do some stretching exercises at least once every hour.

 

Fun Time

 

Have an Active TV Time

We usually limit television to promote physical activity; however, there are still interactive programs that encourage them to do dance or exercise routines. This is one great way to avoid the couch potato syndrome. If your little ones want to watch something else, make a deal by letting them earn their program time with age-appropriate exercises that they can perform during commercials.

Walking with the Family

 

Have an Active Family Time

Just like exercising regularly, allotting time to spend with the family can also be a challenge. Make family mealtime a priority; try to have family walks as well. Go for a stroll through the neighborhood after mealtime to prevent post-meal sluggishness. This is also a great chance for you to spend more time with each other.

 

Outdoor Playtime

 

 

Keep All Activities Fun & Engaging

Children won’t be involved in activities that they don’t enjoy. On the other hand, if they are having fun, they will actively engage in the task. Keep things fun during playtime and exercises to increase their motivation. Besides that, praise them and show appreciation when they practice a skill – this makes your little ones feel better and accomplished. Even if they are busy, they will find ways to make time for physical activities if they have fun doing them.

Be a Good Example

Of course, being a good example is one of the most important steps when you instill habits in children. When it comes to having a healthy lifestyle, this becomes more natural for children when they see you practicing what you preach. As a parent, you definitely have a busy schedule and you may have little to no time for exercise. You can make little changes by parking your car  some distance from your destination  and walk to it instead. Also, make sure that your children know why you’re doing this so they can eventually make healthy and active choices as well.

Prioritize Outdoor Time

When the weather is fine, make sure that your little ones get to spend some time outdoors. Yes, studies are important but you should make it a point that they get enough fresh air and Vitamin D from the sun. Encouraging your children to play with the Whistlecopter toys will definitely make things more fun.
