Talking about the health, the doctor said that it is the worst season for the kids. Many kids get flu. I remembered a monthly newspaper I got from her school - it gave me the tips I can use to keep my family happy and healthy this holiday season, and I think it is very useful if I will share it below.
My little daughter was playing with her toys.
Did you know that according to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), all kids 2 years and older should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise on most. preferably all, and play. Any activity that gets your heart pumping is great such as jumping rope and dancing. Childhood obesity affects 1 out of 3 children in the US. In order to tackle this problem lets GET OUT AND PLAY, 60 MINUTES EVERY DAY!
She wants to be a Musketeer. I helped her making a special mask and she brought it to school on Halloween day last month.
Everyone can benefit from regular exercise. Kids who are active will:
- have stronger muscles and bones
- have a leaner body necaue exercise helps control body fat
- be less likely to become overweight
- decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes - possibly lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels
- have a better outlook on life (source from Kidshealth)
There are also five HEARTWARMING ideas you should know for Holidays from the American Heart Association:
1. Take a walk to see holiday decorations. Whether they're in store windows or around the neighborhood, take a tour of the brightly lit decorations in your area.
2. Go dancing. Any form of dancing is great exercise!
She likes dancing besides drawing, coloring, singing and of course - playing.
3. Make popcorn garlands for the birds. Just pop your popcorn without oil for a healthy treat for the birds as well as you.
4. Avoid holiday parking jams - park at the far end of store parking lots. Avoid the tension and frustration of searching for a close parking space. Enjoy a brisk walk and get into the store quicker than if you kept cruising the lot.
5. Take time to snuggle up with family members. You'll have a chance to share a personal moment with the ones you love as well as experience the relaxing benefits of quiet meditation. (hmm, my little daughter likes snuggling with me. I do, too especially snuggling with my husband - his skin is so warm (western man), it's opposite with mine (eastern woman), he, he...)
