Encouraging Kids to Exercise

Encouraging Kids to Exercise

As technology progresses and social networking, as well as online services are becoming more common, many kids are not getting the exercise necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Parents are not encouraging their kids to step outside the house and as a result the average weight of children in America is rising. There are many things as a child or as a parent that you can do to promote exercise.

One way to promote exercise for kids is to make Physical Education a required course in school. Only 25% of high school students participate in daily physical activity, making PE a required course would boost that number and create a swing of momentum in increasing exercise.

Another way to encourage exercise is to create an athletic friendly environment. If you have children, perhaps you install a jungle gym in your backyard or buy a basketball hoop. As little as 30 minutes of exercise a day can really make a difference in your child’s quality of life.

A big way to promote a healthy lifestyle is to get your kid’s involved in sports. Involving your children in a sport at a young age will help your child continue a healthy lifestyle throughout his or her life. Joining a sport not only benefits your health, but it also teaches your child teamwork and important life skills.
