MONDAY MOTIVATION: Fitness Ideas for the Whole Family
With the burst of warmer weather coming it's been exciting to think about getting outside again, but it also makes me think about how so many people become sedentary during the cold winter months including kids. Being sedentary is one of the worst things you can do for your body. It can be defined as any waking behavior characterized by a low energy expenditure while in a sitting or reclining posture. Many people, especially those who work in an office can find themselves sitting for more than 12 hours per day! In addition, when it gets cold and it's harder to be outside and be active, even our kids end up sitting longer. More TV watching and more activities done while sitting are the easy way to pass a day when you're stuck inside.
BUT it doesn't have to be that way just because it's cold outside. Here is a list of ideas for the whole family to keep active and moving throughout the day.
Expending energy throughout the day will keep you healthier, help to prevent diseases, help you sleep better, reduce stress, and keep your body feeling better all over!
