Are you trying to find ways to have a healthy lifestyle not only for yourself but for your family? Having a healthy lifestyle is something we like to do at our home as a family. As my boys are getting older it’s important to let them know that having a good healthy lifestyle is important not only for your mind but also for your body. If you want to find ways to help your family start a healthy lifestyle, here are 4 easy steps to do that.
Healthy Lifestyle with these 4 Easy Steps
Get Enough Sleep – People don’t realize that making sure you get 8 hours of sleep is very important. Even more important for your kids. My boys have a set schedule every day even on the weekends. They’re supposed to get at least 9-10 hours. Getting those hours of sleep at night will ensure you have a great start your day by being well rested.
Eat Breakfast – MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY! That’s what we tell our boys. Every morning we eat breakfast whether it’s cereal or a hearty meal like pancakes, eggs, and bacon. Need to eat protein to have energy during the day.
Take Your Vitamins – As someone who doesn’t like to eat vegetables (also my oldest son), I have to ensure that I’m able to intake the nutrients that veggies give to your body. This means every morning with our meals we like to take our Nature Made® Gummy Vitamins.
For my boys, they take the Nature Made® Kids First® Vitamin C – these gummy vitamins provide an excellent source of vitamin C to help support the immune system. If you have picky kids, don’t worry these taste so good so they will want to continue to take them.
Drink Water – Water is so important for your body and this is something we pressure the boys to do and even myself. Brian drinks so much water. You’re supposed to have 8 glasses of water a day but you can also drink half your body weight.
Another way is to exercise. Whether it’s taking the stairs instead of the elevator, going to the gym, or even going for walks in the afternoon. The boys and I walk our dog every day after school together and they always like to see how many steps we all got in during our walk. It’s a fun way to get the kids into exercising.
