You are the most influential person in your child’s life. Research shows that the greatest indicator for how dedicated a child is to exercise and healthy eating is how dedicated their parents are to the same behaviors. So lead your child in the right ways to create the healthiest lifestyle.
Learn how to explore your community for wellness resources and stay on track each day for a healthier life.
Teach by Example
Parents serve as role models not only through direct interactions with their children, but also through the examples they set with their attitude and behavior toward healthy eating and physical activity. Your actions impact how your child thinks and feels about fitness. If you care about your child’s health, then focus on your own health and be the role model that sets the pace for your family’s healthy choices.
Look for Local Resources
You are not on this journey alone. Families in every community across the country are trying to improve their family’s health and wellness. By reaching out and accessing the resources, groups, and individuals who are striving to create healthy families, you can contribute to a movement that is creating a healthier generation.
Reflect and Re-Plan
In order to succeed you first have to have a way to measure your success. Putting together a plan and then evaluating your progress is a way to identify your strengths and victories as well as weaknesses and challenges. Understanding all of these elements will help you plan for a better wellness future and be the healthier person you want to be.
