How are your New Years Resolutions coming along? If you have made a new goal of living a healthier and more active lifestyle, you are in good company. The number one goal for Americans in 2016 is to lose weight, followed closely by getting organized. If you have a young infant, toddler, or preschooler at home, those goals can seem laughable – and near impossible! But don’t give up too quickly; the importance of modeling a healthy lifestyle for your children is crucial.
Help yourself out by setting goals that are realistic but will still give you great results. For example, instead of watching TV after dinner every night, set aside one or two nights to go for a walk together as a family or make regular visits to a nearby park. During your lunch break, taking a walk outside or going for a quick jog can help your heart health as well as boost endorphins. Check to see if your workplace has any type of fitness incentive program to help encourage you in your goals as well. It can be easy to overbook yourself when you’re trying to include more healthy activities into your schedule. A good rule of thumb is to replace activities rather than add new ones.
Signing your preschooler up for an activity is a great way to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Fort Mill, we understand how tricky it can be for busy, working parents to carpool their kids all over town, to and from childcare or preschool, appointments and practices.
