It seems challenging to find enough hours in a day to spend a quality time with your family these days. Busy hours, hectic schedule, hustle bustle along with a strict routine life, it does not ensure that your child stays active neither you are able to make time for your own exercise regimen. So what to do to incorporate workout sessions in your schedule and get the whole family moving?
Check out some really fun yet convenient ideas I have come up with to make it work for everyone. No need to devote thirty minutes of vigorous workout every day. Just get yourself set for the fun.
1. Go for Post Dinner Walks
Incorporating a walking plan into your daily schedule is a great way to spend some family time and stay fit and active. How about a going for a long stroll after dinner? Tag your teen and toddler along too. I am sure these evening walks would surely do good to you and your family too.
2. Go Cycling
Cycling sounds much more exciting than long strolls, isn’t it? A family cycle ride once a week can be a great way to raise the fitness level. Make use of your bikes to go to school, to the grocery store or any other location when and where appropriate.
3. Plant New Bulbs
Gardening probably does not sound like an exercise, but trust me, it does wonders! If you are not up for hiking and running, walk to the back yard and do some gardening. Plant new bulbs and water the lawn. Engage your kids too in gardening. Planting vegetables and fruits may also encourage them to eat these healthy foods thus improving their health in another way.
4. Sneak Workouts in Household Chores
Vacuuming, dusting and cleaning, these chores might seem demanding to you. Why not make them a fun activity? Tune to your favorite track while you do the laundry or clean the house. Get yourself into gardening. Dig up dirt, plant new bulbs, water the lawn and keep yourself moving to stay active throughout the day.
5. Turn TV Advertisements into Fitness Breaks
Our living room is often a center of laziness with a comfy couch, a rack full of DVDs, video games while nothing to encourage fitness. Sprawling on a sofa and watching TV throughout the evening will only make you a couch potato. Why not turn TV commercials into fitness breaks? Just turn your sporty mode on during TV advertisements and do some sit-ups and push-ups to keep yourself flexible.
