TIPS FOR FAMILIES:
Set a good example. Be physically active and get your family to join you. Play with the kids or pets. Go for a walk, tumble in the leaves, or play catch.
Establish a routine. Set aside time each day as activity time – walk, jog, skate, cycle, or swim. Adults need at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week; children need at least 60 minutes
every day or most days.
Have an activity party. Make the next birthday party centered on activity. Try backyard Olympics or relay races. Have a skating or bowling party.
Set up a home gym. Use household items such as canned foods as weights. Stairs can substitute for stair machines.
