Do your children spend more time inside the house watching television or playing computer games than they spend playing outside? Do you know that motivating your children to be active not only improves their health and well-being now but may also benefit their health later in life?
If you're wondering how to help your children become more active, the answer is simple: Make it fun. Boost your child's good feelings about exercise by suggesting fun physical activity you can do together. In addition to the obvious health benefits, participating in physical activities together is great for bonding by increasing the amount of quality time you spend with your child.
Encouraging an inactive child to exercise more can be tough. But it's never been more important: Childhood obesity rates have more than doubled in children and tripled in teens over the last 30 years.
Taking in too many calories, especially when paired with a sedentary lifestyle, can seriously affect your child’s health -- both now and in the future. Obese kids are likely to grow up to be obese adults, which increases their risks for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.
Increasing your child’s activity levels will do much more than just improve his or her physical health. Incorporating more time outdoors, getting regular exercise and trying new activities can improve your child's self-esteem and emotional health, too.
Getting your child involved in a fitness intense, fun filled activity laden summer camp is the best way to get your child to become physically active over the summer break, expend extra energy and calories and have a blast while doing it! This is why you should enlist your child for the Active Kids Camp at PLAYBOX which allows them to get involved in creative, meaningful playtivities along with physically invigorating cross fitness and kiddy martial arts sessions!
