5 Heart-Heathy Family Activities
Below are five heart-healthy family activities that you and your family can easily incorporate into their daily routines.
Take a walk after dinner:Instead of sitting in front of the TV, get in the habit of walking around the neighborhood after the dishes are clean. Not only are you getting exercise as a family, but you can also get to know your neighbors while enjoying fresh air.
Join Springfree Trampoline’s Community Jump Challenge:Get jumping and that heart pumping! Help the community reach 100,000 jumps to raise $1,000 for the Metro Atlanta American Heart Association by visiting and jumping at Springfree Trampoline’s East Cobb store or Forsyth store.
Sign up for a class:Whether it’s yoga, a tennis lesson or meditation class, studies have shown that family exercise strengthens bonds and muscles. Try something new that the family has never done before so everyone is learning together.
Have a dance party in your living room:Dancing has a wide range of physical and mental benefits including improved heart and lung health, in addition to naturally boosting your mood. Crank up the tunes and blast your favorite music in the living room for an impromptu dance party at home.
Host a weekly sports night:Each family member picks a card and performs the exercise pictures. You can make your own, or buy a ready-made set of cars from a brand like FitDeck.
According to the CDC, about half of Americans (47%) have at least one high-risk factor for heart disease and several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can put people at higher risk. The biggest part of cardiovascular health comes down to making healthy choices, and even small changes to our daily lifestyle can improve heart health and lower cardiovascular risk by as much as 80 percent.This month and every month, make sure that you and your family are doing everything in your power to stay heart healthy. Getting into good habits now will make living a healthy lifestyle a lot easier for everyone in the future.
