When you have kids, your life changes in monumental ways. Remember all that free time you used to have? Now that’s filled with feeding babies, cleaning, cooking and all the other joys of a domestic life. How do you find time for things like exercise? How do you make sure you and your family stay healthy? Since chasing your toddler around the house doesn’t quite cut it, I have a few tips for you.
Start by eating healthy. It was probably on your list of resolutions this year, but actually implementing a plan can be difficult. Start by making and packaging healthy snacks in perfect portions and ensure they’re easy to access. It’s hard to find time to make an artisan sandwich when you’re on the way out the door to a park play date. When you do have time to cook, get your kids involved. Teach them the process and where their food comes from.
Keep the whole family active by finding activities that everyone enjoys doing together. Maybe it’s hiking, or skiing, or window shopping. When you’re having fun exercising, it doesn’t feel so daunting. Also let your children figure out what personal activities they enjoy, and allow them to explore those opportunities.
