An Exercise Program

School has started and children are back studying. When I was young, we would run to school, run at recess, run at PE, run home, and run and play once we got home. Today, children do not run and play. They expect you to take them some where to be entertained, watch TV, or play on the computer or video games.

During the month of September why not take advantage of the warm weather. Get your child in a fitness program that can continue throughout the year. To help your child understand the benefits of physical fitness, speak with him/her often about the need to take care of themselves physically. Be a role model and openly share with them what you do to stay in shape. Discuss how your daily physical routine helps you stay healthy. If you do not have a daily fitness routine, come up with a daily routine with your child. Make the fitness routine fun. Try walking, jogging, bike riding, swimming, skating, hiking, or any exercise everyone can enjoy. Work as a team and encourage one another. Remember to warm-up for at least 5 minutes before starting the physical exercise. Then, exercise and get your heart rate up for at least 30 minutes. Finally, have a cool-down for about 5 more minutes. It will make a world of difference in your family's health.
