5 Fun Ways to Stay Active as a Family!

During the month of May, my coaches and I are promoting I - Interpersonal Relationships. Last month, we focused on A - Activity. A social support system is as vital to our overall health and well-being as staying active, implementing good nutrition and getting rest. With school letting out soon and the beautiful weather this time of year, I have come up with a few ways that you and your family can build relationships while staying active together this spring/summer!

1. Play a game of Backyard Football! 

-or another game (tag, Frisbee, baseball, etc)…the possibilities are endless, but the point is to get outside and have fun together!

 2. Go on a bike ride!
 -or take a nature hike…anything that allows you to enjoy God’s creation!

 3. Participate in a local 5K for Charity! 
-or any community race (walk, run, bike ride, etc) that gives you the opportunity to give back while you get fit!

 4. Clean the house! 
-or yard, garage, etc…turn the music on and burn some calories while you work!

 5. Take a camping trip! 
-or a trip to the lake…simply get away from the chaos of life for a day or two, enjoying each other’s company in a new setting!

What is your favorite thing to do together as a family? My family and I enjoy riding bikes together and playing 4 Square any chance we get!
