Health Tip: Become an Active Family
Small changes add up

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Getting more active should be a family affair. It can even be fun if you approach it the right way.

The American Council on Exercise suggests:

  • Have an open and honest conversation with the family about why it's important to be more active.
  • Don't nag family members to get active. Instead, plan fun, adventurous outings that get everyone moving, such as biking, hiking, bowling, canoeing or swimming.
  • Buy inexpensive sports equipment, such as mitts, balls, racquets and hula hoops.
  • Set limits on family screen time. But if you do watch screens together, opt for a physically active video game for the whole family.
  • Have fun, enjoy yourself and set a good example for your kids.
