March 20 is the first official day of spring. Enjoy the warmer weather with the family and stay active with these 4 fitness tips:
Weather permitting, take a nice walk with your family around the neighborhood or to your local park. You can even bring your family pet. Burn calories before your meal or after dessert.
Have your toddler walk instead of riding in the cart at the grocery store. Take the stairs or walk up the escalator whenever possible. Walk your children to school if the weather permits and school is close enough. Trade tv time after dinner for playtime at the park or in the backyard.
Get everyone involved in keeping the family home running smoothly. Children can help with everyday housework inside and outside the home. Summertime is a great opportunity for kids to help with yard work. During the fall season, kids can rake leaves and have fun by jumping in the colorful piles. During winter, kids can play in the snow and help clear the walkways. Inside the home, kids can assist with laundry and age-appropriate chores. All these activities can help the entire family be more active.
Support a good cause and get a great opportunity to exercise. You can walk or run with your family while showing them the importance of giving back.
