Tips, Tools, & Activities
When we establish physical fitness routines and healthy eating goals we lay the foundation for a healthy home. Continue to work as a family to reach your lifestyle goals and celebrate the small wins. Sometimes we may reward ourselves with unhealthier food options or implement a “lazy day” and refrain from our exercise routine. Rewarding ourselves this way can have negative implications and cause the family to get off track by placing the importance on an unhealthy behavior rather than a healthy one. This month, have the family get together and create a list of non-food rewards to use when you achieve your goals! These can include having friends over to play, getting a higher allowance, getting a new book, going to the park, exploring some new family activities, going to the library or a museum, and so much more. Get creative and have fun!
