It’s Family Wellness Month, and we’ve shared great ideas to help you improve your family’s wellness each day this week.
An easy way to get extra steps as a family? Park farther away at the store and ask the kids to count the steps it takes to get to the door.
Go grocery shopping together and have everyone help plan the meals. Kids are more likely to get interested in cooking and be less picky when they’re involved.
Set goals together as a family, especially healthy goals, and share your dreams with one another. Talk about how to support and help each person achieve those goals and dreams.
Develop family rituals that connect you together, like holiday traditions, reading as a family, or weekly yoga or meditation sessions.
Give each child alone time with parents. One-on-one time helps you forge strong relationships and can make them feel special and heard.
Listen and fight fair with your loved ones. Your kids learn from how you handle these difficult moments. If this is something you struggle with, a therapist can help.
Set bedtimes for everyone in the family so that they get a healthy amount of sleep for their age, which is especially important for growing children.
