Welcome to the category of my blog simply called ‘Healthy Tips.’ Many times, when I write articles for various publications, I need to find sources for the story as seen in Yahoo Shine (click here) or PBS (click here) about staying healthy. I was looking for experts and non-experts to chime in and give their favorite ‘tips’ to help kids and adults lead a healthy lifestyle.
The feedback for various stories was amazing. The sources had some fantastic points of view that could not be ignored, and I thought their opinions should be viewed on the Your Health Journal web site.
So, enjoy my new series, with some ‘great’ insight from some ‘great’ people giving exceptional and educational points of view.
It’s important to set a good example and be a positive role model for our kids. They mimic everything we do! I want them to see each family member taking care of themselves – eating right, enjoying being active, and making healthy choices. In our family, we’re all involved in my kids soccer so most days we’re on the field chasing, kicking or passing the soccer ball. We also go on family bike rides, runs and hikes together as often as possible. My kids also love doing yoga with me at the end of the day as a way to help ease ourselves into slumber. It’s one of my favorite things to do with them.
