There’s no doubt that whatever you’ve been doing this summer, you can’t escape Olympic fever and if you’re anywhere in the UK you will have been swept up by the excitement and dedicated support for team GB. This years games have shown just how large the range of sporting heroes we have within our country, with gold medals being won across a variety of events, from cycling and rowing to athletics and sailing. This is the time, says family magazine Candis, to encourage our own children to follow in the footsteps of our winning sportsmen and women and get active.
The benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle and getting involved in sports are obvious, but Candis points out that the London 2012 Olympics has taught the next generation much more than that. The family magazine, who often publishes parenting articles and highlights family health issues, is eager to show the benefits that parents may not have realised when watching the games with their children, such as highlighting the range of sports out there, both indoor and outdoor.
Being involved in sport offers a way for children to focus their energy, build on any skills and talent and work hard towards achieving something. Team games are great for promoting social skills and encourage children to work well with others. But even more than that, where sports such as football have recently shown the arrogant and unpleasant side of sport, the games have shown what it means to be sporting and treat others with respect.
Candis, the family magazine aimed at busy women juggling parenting, relationships and work, provides a monthly publication that covers family issues, health, beauty, fashion and real life stories. As well as a refreshing read, Candis offers competitions, puzzles and money saving deals to its readers. As a subscriber, you’ll also benefit from membership to the Candis Club, with additional offers and features such as being part of their strong online community.
