Last year is in the past and 2020 is upon us! New Year’s resolutions are pouring in, and the most popular one is to lose weight. We might think that a healthy lifestyle with preschoolers is next to impossible, but there are actually a few ways that kids can make healthy living a little bit easier.
Plan your meals ahead of time. If you’re going to succeed, you must plan. Failing to plan is planning to fail. Put together a meal plan, and set aside one day a week to make the meals on your plan. Then separate these into proper serving sizes to store in the freezer. You can make these meals for only you, or if you’re feeling ambitious, you can have your whole family adopt a healthy diet. Whatever works for you!
Start a family exercising hobby. This could be hiking, or biking, or rock climbing. Whatever your family enjoys doing, do it together! You could adopt a dog and walk him together every day, or learn some yoga poses together. Exercising is good for everyone, so you don’t have to be afraid of letting your kids join you.
Your kids are your biggest fans. They want to see you succeed, and when you’re happy, they’re happy. Look for ways that they can hold you accountable. Involving them in your exercise routine is going to be one of the best ways to do this because they love doing grown up things with us. Once you include them, they won’t let you forget!
Remember that healthy living is beneficial to everyone, and it’s easier to stay committed when you have an accountability partner. Meeting up with a friend could be too difficult when you can get it done at home with your kids to cheer you on. Make 2020 healthier as you involve you little ones in your healthy endeavors.
