What kiddo (or adult!) doesn’t want to build a snowman and partake in the winter fun? Unfortunately, keeping little ones healthy, warm and entertained simultaneously is easier said than done. Keep this guide handy, get the whole family outdoors, and stay safe.
Old Man Winter is approaching, and with him comes a sickening sense of cabin fever. Symptoms include nagging and bored kids, exasperated parents, bulging midsections from holiday indulgences, and a lack of excitement and adventure in your life. This doesn’t sound like a recipe for a healthy lifestyle.
The season is changing; if only those extra pounds put on over a summer of eating BBQ and drinking cold beers could drop as fast as the leaves! With the local pools closing, bike paths becoming cooler, and the kids back in school, a lot of our exercises are starting to move indoors. That shift means that we may want to think “inside” the box as we prepare to swap the intense heat for some heavy sweat in a new group fitness class or gym.
School is out, time to plan your summer activities! Rockford Park District has announced these events and activities that a family of four can participate in for $25 or less! Learn more at www.rockfordparkdistrict.org for a list of museums, parks and more!
In this age of social media, we are exposed to new ideas at a rapid pace. Depending on your social circle, you may be inundated with advice on healthy living from your online friends. Sleep more. Sleep less. Only eat organic foods. Organic doesn’t matter, but do not dare eat non-GMO. Try this cleanse. Cleanses don’t work, just eat paleo. Make sure your kids are in the same school as the other neighborhood kids. Make sure your kids go to Montessori school. If you really cared, you would homeschool your kids. *deep breath*
