Once everyone has settled in to their back to school routine, it is easy to forget to stay active. It is important for all children and adults to have the opportunity to play and move everyday. The following link explains how much activity is recommended for each age group from birth to over age 65.
The activities do not always have to be formal events, such as signing children up for hockey or soccer.
They could be as simple as:
- walking the dog
- playing catch in the backyard
- walking to school
- going on family bike rides
Make it family time! This will help ensure that you stick to it.
