Plan Family Activities

If you read our article about how to prepare for a healthy holiday season, planning an activity was one of our tips!  Going for a family walk or any activity to get you and your kids moving is the key.  If you are in the New England area, our winters are filled with snow typically.  Shoveling & playing in the snow is a great activity

 for people of all ages!  Sledding, snowball fights – what is more fun than that in the winter months!  When the snow melts and it is time to play outside, helping your little one ride a bike or play at the beach is a great
outdoor activity that all can take part in!

Mindful Eating

Many people are not aware of what mindful eating is or how you can incorporate in your life.  Being mindful
when you eat, it very important in maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.  It is often said that we gain weight
and consume the most calories when we are mindlessly eating.  That is when we are eating and not aware of what we are eating.  This is when we tend to not realize when we are truly full and overeat.

 We found some great tips from Robard Corporation on how you can begin to training yourself to be a mindful eater:

1. Chew 25 times
2. Feed yourself with your non-dominant hand
3. Eat everything with chopsticks for a week
4. Put your food on a plate
5. Sit at a table

Talk to Your Kids

Communication with your kids is so very important in promoting a healthy lifestyle and diet.  Something that most people overlook and is crucial as your children grow up is promoting positive body image.  By continuously promoting a healthy and positive body image with your children, this will help them build confidence within themselves and not only affect their diet & lifestyle but in all aspects of their lives.
