What would it look like if our community really focused on healthy living? Being active isn’t always easy! Here are some helpful tips to keep your family strong this Summer!
5 tips for living strong this Summer.
Tip 1: Power Dinner: Establish one night per week to have a super healthy dinner. There are all kinds of websites with free recipes that are healthy and delicious! This will enable parents to introduce new and healthy foods to kids. It is also an opportunity to for parents to lead by example in having a balanced diet.
Tip 2: Family Fun Days: Mark your calendar for 4-5 days over the Summer where you are going to do a fun day that includes walking, rowing, hiking, swimming, etc., that makes the family exercise as you do something fun! Make sure to build in a rest day to follow!
Tip 3: Rest days: A great way to stay healthy is to rest. There is a time to workout and a time to chill out! Make sure to build rest into your weekly flow.
Tip 4: Home workout: There are so many fun family workouts that you can do at home. Here is a simple one what I call the Summer Vacation Home Workout:
3 Sets of 20 seconds of pushups with a 10 second break between sets
3 Sets of 20 seconds of crunches with a 10 second break between sets
3 Sets of 20 seconds of squats with a 10 second break between sets
Just break out the timer app on your phone, blast some fun music and go for it! Doing this 2-3 times per week can make a big difference this Summer!
Tip 5: Get Organized: Look for an organized activity that the whole family can do! One great advantage to Martial Arts training, is that parents and kids, even though they are in different classes, are learning similar curriculum and can therefore practice together and progress together.
