Get Our Kids Going!

If you follow my blogs, you know I am very concerned about the physical health of our children, and how much aerobic activity they get everyday. Many of our kids are overweight and addicted to TV and video games. It is time to get involved and get our kids going!

According to the September 2009 issue of WebMD Magazine, here are three suggestions on getting our kids more active:

1. Class Action - Don't assume your child is getting enough physical activity at school. Give kids a chance to move and get their heart rates up before studying makes it easier for them to learn. Ask your child's teacher about having the class do jumping jacks, run in place, and other quick exercise in between classroom activities.

2. Power Hour - Make sure your kids run around for at least an hour each day. It doesn't have to be a straight hour of exercise. Try short 15-minute burst of running, jumping, or games that encourage these activities to keep them interested and active.

3. Family Affair - Busy families tend to skip physical activities together. Bond with your kids and boost the whole family's health by planning family bike rides, walks, or other exercise you can do together.

Get your kids off to a healthy start this school year with regular exercise and healthy habits.
