Admittedly, today’s world places many demands on parents. But don’t you think that good health for all your family members is unimportant?
Family Exercise, Is that Possible?
Yes, it is perfectly possible. Strong family bonds can be achieved by just engaging in exercises that will take only 20 minutes to do. If you are a young family, with small kids that can run only an entire block, then this one is perfect for you. Here are some exercise suggestions and most of them will not cost you anything. But you have to be consistent – to build a strong family bond.
1. Grocery Shopping A
Park your car at the very rear of the parking lot. Then race each other to the grocery door. Or you can walk fast and see who reaches the door first.
2. Grocery shopping B
Instead of using the car, ask every family member to walk to the store. This is suitable for those who live about one mile from a grocery store.
Swimming is the most fun exercise any family can have. Instead of going to the movies, schedule a regular swimming date with the kids.
If you have errands that are too far to walk, why not use your bikes to get there?
5. Walk the kids to school
If your kids’ school is about ten minutes away by foot, then by all means, walk them to school. For parents, that would be a good 20-minute walking exercise (back and forth).
6. Go for a morning fun run
This will be good on Sundays, since nobody has to go to work or school. You can start with a half a mile fun run and gradually increase the distance in the succeeding weeks.
7. Play family tag
Playing tag is lots of fun for the whole family. You will have a great time especially if you hear your children’s laughter every time you catch them. You can just easily do this in your backyard and it’s great for fitness.
Exercises to improve your health and fitness need not be boring. Most importantly, these things need not be something that you get to do on your own. Include the whole family in your quest to live a healthier life by encouraging them to join in some fun physical activities that you can do on a regular basis.
