Get Your House and Family in Shape!

 

Exercise is vital for health, and families are more and more conscious of its importance. Families are getting more interested in family fitness, but they may not think there’s time to do it. Here’s an idea: why not get your house and family in shape by combining house cleaning with family fitness and together time? Here are some ideas and tips.

Creative Moves

Housework is exercise; there’s no doubt about it. But if you really want to make it into a family fitness activity, you might need to get creative with the moves. This can be a lot of fun, and laughter is good for everyone’s health! Here are some tips.
* Squats and Lunges – These classic workout moves can be utilized for household chores. One person can do squats while cleaning out the fridge – squat, get an item, then hand it to another family member who can do a lunge toward the garbage can to throw it out.

Squats can be included in a lot of housecleaning tasks – pretty much anything that involves reaching down. Squats are better for your back anyhow.

* Dance – Why not create a fun cleaning dance? Put on some music like the Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy and dust or mop with exaggerated ballet moves. More modern music can have a motivational beat and make cleaning more like a dance party than a chore.

Next up – Together Time – Tomorrow.

To your Spring shape up,
