Make Exercising a Positive Experience

 

Why?

 

  • Sometimes we think of exercise as a chore or something you're forced to do. If you think about exercise as a reward, it's a fun way to get a boost of energy and stay healthy.

  • Exercise can help relieve stress, improve concentration at work or school, help you sleep better at night, helps keep a healthy weight, and gives you more energy!

 

Tips

  • Reward children with a trip to the park, zoo, or beach where you can check out a new neighborhood.

  • Dance to the music! It gets your heart pumping and your pulse up, and it's so much fun.

  • Ask a friend to join you on a walk or bike ride. You can take a stroller along and walk with your baby.
