Growing up as a young adult, one of the hardest things to transition into was a healthy lifestyle. Leaving the house and moving out into the world on your own, crucial self-development had to be learned such as dieting, exercise, and taking care of hygiene to promote a better future. This usually takes young adults years to learn, and even longer to master. Unfortunately, it never ends for the family person, as the kids present new and more difficult challenges to health.
Instead of focusing and managing the health and development of one body, you now have the sole responsibility of promoting and maintaining the health of all of your kids, as well as encouraging the same to be done for the rest of your family. This may seem like a challenge to pursue, but for the right-minded person, all it takes is a little bit of family synergy and the will to make better lifestyles for yourself and others.
Teamwork has a lot to do with the success of a group, and this doesn’t fall short within a household. Bringing your kids and changing their lifestyle through having them observe yours is a great way to get them started on the right track. But it doesn’t stop there, as having them watch isn’t enough. Go the extra mile, and find activities that put them in the habit of making a healthier life! Leland Fondow takes his wife and his three children to play tennis at least twice a week, hoping that the activity will not only bring the family together, but will also give them a seed to use in a healthy lifestyle later on.
