Health Tip: Add Exercise to Your Family's Regular Routine

Play a sport, or go for a walk

(HealthDay News) -- A regular exercise routine can help the whole family develop lifelong healthy habits and better health.

The Letsmove.gov website recommends:

  • Scheduling an activity for a 30-minute block at least three times a week. Consider playing a sport, taking a family walk or doing household chores.
  • Use a calendar to schedule and track your exercise and watch how your family progresses.
  • Don't cancel exercise if something comes up. Be flexible and reschedule for a better time.
  • Share your healthy routine with friends, and invite them to join.
  • Get started with a simple dance party, hula-hooping, walking instead of driving, walking the dog, or with an activity such as a hike instead of eating dessert.
