The start of a new year is a great time to make lifestyle changes to improve the overall health and wellness of your family. See below for mind, body and spirit ideas that everyone can get behind.
Hearty Breakfast – mornings are hectic, so it’s easy to skimp on breakfast, but it really is the most important meal of the day. Consider something made the night before like this recipe for Banana Slow Cooker Overnight Steel Cut Oats.
Healthy Snacks – kids, especially teenagers, can be lazy, so it’s important to make healthy snacks easy and accessible. That’s why we love the idea of self-serve refrigerator and pantry snack boxes pre-filled with parent-approved options.
Practicing Self-Love – Encourage everyone in your family to celebrate their strengths vs. criticizing their weaknesses. And put a positive spin on eating right and exercising explaining that it shouldn’t feel like punishment, but rather rewarding.
Increased Activity – Getting 8 hours of sleep is very important, but for the other 16 hours a day, let’s try to move! Consider riding bikes instead of driving, a quick family walk before dinner, stability balls instead of desk chairs and picking individual sports or other physical activity that you enjoy.
