My one word for 2017 is health.
I’m working on improving my physical, mental, and spiritual mindset. Part of my goal is to train my children to live healthy lives, too.
Making small changes that can develop into livelong habits can make a significant difference in our children’s future. It’s never too late to start.
I’ve discovered that the more healthy food and less junk I buy, the more fruit and veggies my children will eat. It’s just common sense. They will eat what is available. We also talk often about making healthy choices for when they are at school and restaurants. I try to encourage my children to fill half their plates with veggies and fruits.
Also, we take turns taking our dog for a walk instead of simply letting him out in the fenced backyard area. This allows us to get fresh air and exercise on a daily basis.
We are also choosing to spend more time at the park instead of pounding away on electronics; we have simply been enjoying the outside together as a family.
“I FEEL BETTER WHEN” is a popular theme for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This simple theme stresses how small, daily, behavioral changes can have a lasting impact on children’s lives. Triple Play, the wonderful Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs of America’s health and wellness program, is targeting these types of healthy lifestyle changes at a young age.
Won’t you consider including your family’s own “I feel better when” submission for the new year? I’ve been educated myself by reading books on health, happiness, and encouragement, and in turn, my children and I have been having some great health conscious conversations this year. It’s a joy to train my children in good health and establishing healthy habits. At supper time, I love to share with my children what I’ve gleaned in my daily reading.
