There are so many amazing schools, organizations, and individuals who are getting their communities moving. What can you do to be part of the movement of incorporating 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity aerobic activity every day? It’s easier than you think.
Try Educating Parents At Back To School Night: Share with parents the importance of their health and how it affects their children. So many habits are learned and can be positively relearned. Healthy habits can be formed in 30 days. Why not assign some healthy homework that families can do together? Share with parents some of the ways you incorporate movement into the day so families can replicate, share the fun at home, feel better, and live healthier. Students and families can even log their physical activity minutes.
Try Organizing Healthy and Active Weekend Family Field Trips: What better way to move than scheduling a time to connect with students and families outside of school once a month or a few times a year. Are there any charitable races on the horizon? A new trampoline park to try? A rock climbing class to take together? You may be surprised and how many families truly look forward to this time of moving and learning as a positive community.
