Kids and Exercise: Exercising with your Kids… Do you do it ?
Regular physical activity has some amazing benefits for both parents and children alike. First, let’s start with the fact that there is a link between regular physical activity and increased immunity which means your family may be better suited to fight off colds and flu. Some other benefits for parents are an increased amount of energy, reduced stress, a boost in your mood, and it helps you maintain a healthy weight – sounds like an amazing scenario to me! Kids who are physically active have stronger muscles, are less likely to become overweight and here’s the real bonus – they sleep better!
So what kind of activities can parents are kids do together? Well that all depends on the age of your child. One way the whole family can exercise together is to spend some time in the pool. Now, don’t expect to be able to do laps but instead play marco polo, or start helping you little one learn how to swim (the monkey wall crawl is good exercise). Another fun activity is to go to the park and push your kids on the swing or climb around the jungle gym with them – don’t just sit on the sidelines and watch anymore. If you just want to stay home then a great activity is to dance! Turn on some music and dance together – it’s amazing how you can work up a sweat just dancing around the house and being silly.
