Family Wellness Tips and Ideas
Do Some Simple Daily Stretching
Start the day with a few simple stretches – it can really wake a body up! Not only will it get you moving in the morning it can also improve your flexibility and blood flow to your muscles.
If mornings are a frantic time and the thought of adding in time for stretching is a step too far, try making time in the evening and opting for gentler yoga moves to calm down before bedtime.
Have a Digital Detox Day
It is said that social media is more addictive than smoking or alcohol – which is shocking! Taking a step back and getting away from those devices for a day as a family is a great routine to set, once a week or a fortnight, whatever works best for you.
Showing your kids that they can get by without checking their phones/devices is important, and leading by example is a great way to teach them the importance of being active, maintaining friendships in the ‘real’ world by talking, spending time together, etc.
Watch Something Funny Together
Laughter really is the best medicine!
We have movie night in our house once a week and more often than not it’s a family-friendly comedy. There is nothing better than sitting with your kids, devices off, and dedicated to spending the time watching something funny – laughing together is a great feeling.
