Staying Healthy – Healthy Children, Healthy Living
It is that time of year again when the leaves begin to turn, the air gets cool and children go back to school. For some parents “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. However, keeping your children healthy as they return to school, or enter day care for the first time, can be a challenge!
Here is the idea in a nutshell:
What - 22mins of moderate intensity activity per day.
How - Winter activities like: Swimming, Stationary cycling, A brisk walk on the downtown trails, Cross country skiing... or just park further away from work and walk!
Why - There are a myriad of health benefits: studies have shown that cardiovascular disease, mental illness, diabetes, and cancer risk are all reduced with regular physical activity!
