Why You Should Hit the Sidewalk with Your Family
There’s only one thing better than a full tummy after a delicious home-cooked meal: a walk! Here are four reasons you should consider adding walking after dinner to your evening routine. 1. It’s More Time to Reconnect
Family dinner is a great place to catch up, share your day and discuss family topics. A walk is a great way to continue unfinished conversations or to get more in-depth with individual family members. Is one child having trouble in school? Drop behind the rest of the family to talk with them more about the issue one-on-one.
This is also a great time to keep in touch with your neighbors. Say “hi” to passersby or people enjoying their patio. Make sure to acknowledge news you’ve heard about their family, a well-manicured lawn or new additions to their outdoor décor. 2. It’s Good for Your Body
Thirty minutes or more of exercise can help with weight loss and help promote better overall wellness. These thirty minutes will fly by when you’re enjoying it with others. Plus, you’re teaching your kids this important lesson early in life. 3. It’s Good for Your Soul
It’s amazing how fresh air can clear your mind. There’s even science to it. Fresh air gives your body the oxygen you need to improve your mental clarity. Sunlight also gives you vitamin D, which can help improve your mood. Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen!4. It’s Better than TV
Walking is a great way to cut down on too much TV, computer use and video game playing. Besides, there’s always time afterward to catch your favorite sitcom–especially with help of DVRs.
