Becoming more active
We have been having a close look at our eating habits and a close look at how active we are as a family…..Yes it was scary but it had to be done if we are to achieve our goal to become a healthier and active family.
We sat down as a family and talked about what we all enjoy doing and find fun. Becoming more active doesn’t have to be boring exercise that we all hate or find a chore, we want to get more active together as a family and enjoy doing so. We all wrote down what we find fun and have enjoyed doing together, we’ve come up with a list of indoor rainy day fun and sunny/dry day outdoor fun….We now have no excuses.
Dancing, wii-fit, swimming, skating at an indoor skate centre, volley balloon, badminton, head stand competitions, wheelbarrow/crab races, indoor carnival games, indoor treasure hunts, and much more.
Tree climbing, football, bike riding, going to the park, rounders, taking the dog for a walk, walk round lake, forest fun, adventure playgrounds, races and much more.
We thought bringing this more into day-to-day life it will all add to a more active and healthier life for us all and will naturally become apart of every day life. Getting more active and healthy doesn’t have to be boring it can be fun if you find things you enjoy and do them all on a more regular basis. Just ten minutes each day can make all the difference.
We have also thought about changes we can make for becoming more active.
Leave the car at home when we can and walk or cycle
Power walk some of our journey.
Shorten our TV time.
Think about food choices.
Exchange a couple of our drinks throughout the day to glasses of water, we all admit to not drinking enough water….Whoops.
We have all agreed to make some changes to our day-to-day life to help us become more active and see how we get on. All these changes are for the better and hopefully will soon become apart of our everyday routine.
