Get physically active together, as a family! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that children be active for at least 60 minutes per day. Some of that time may come from physical activity offered in schools through physical education classes or classroom brain breaks. For adults, it is recommended to participate in a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise each week. Be a healthy role model, and make physical activity fun at home by playing family activity points.
Encourage everyone to think of fun activities that get you up and moving, off the couch, and away from the TV. Incorporating new games and learning new activities is one way to keep physical activity fun. Make getting more physical activity and exercise a family challenge through family activity points.
Provide educational opportunities for the whole family to share the importance and benefits of physical fitness.
Not sure where to start? Consider walking! Walking is the simplest way to start being physically active.
Celebrate your achievements with healthy rewards or healthy parties!
Share your ideas and activities with friends and relatives. Invite them to join in and get moving too!
