Bonding over Fitness

Posted on: April 25th, 2016 by Chris No Comments

imagesFitness is not only great for your health but did you know it can be beneficial to your relationships. We all feel good about working out so why now share that joy with your mom or your child or even your best friends. It’s been proven that families who work out together have a special bond. It’s a great time to catch up and feel good about doing it. It also proves to your kids that being active is important and you need to make time for it.

Here are some ways to bond over fitness or other activities with your kids:

Take a walk – Plan a weekly walk with your family. While you are out do a scavenger hunt and try and find certain trees or collect rocks. Make it a fun activity. You can also walk after dinner to help relax for the evening.
Go to baseball field or basketball court – Go to your local baseball field and play catch or play a game of basketball. These are easy to do and cost nothing.
Go for a family bike ride
Do family yoga and meditation – this is a great way to bond through leaning how to balance and focus.
Plant a garden – Kids love to play in the dirt. Encourage them to plant veggies and explain why its a good thing to grow your own food. This will inspire kids to make healthy food choices.
Play active video games. Kids love to dance or play sports so as a family play a Wii game on the TV. Make this a fun competition between family members.

It’s always important to encourage kids to be active. Why not set a good example and do it with them!
