take an outdoor adventure | family time

by Toni on April 22, 2012

It is so easy to get wrapped up in all the stresses of day to day life. I had last Friday off of work and I promised my son a day free from the stress of a schedule and a computer. I told him we could do anything his heart desires. He asked me to go to the zoo. We had an amazing afternoon learning, playing and just having some relaxing fun together. It can be so hard to force yourself to shut off everything and just devote 100% of your attention to your child. Make sure to give it a shot every now and then. I guarantee you’ll both benefit from some fun and fresh air.

How many kids do you see working out at the gym every day? Probably not any. That’s because even though childhood obesity is a hot topic and rising problem, getting kids to work out at a gym falls along the same lines of making them go to the dentist – kids don’t want to lift weights, they want to have fun! That’s why it’s important to find ways to make getting fit a fun activity, not a chore. So how do you get kids in shape while still making it a fun, and voluntary, activity? Get them outside of course!
