Fitness should always be a priority in every family’s daily schedule. Being physically active and mentally healthy needs to be ingrained in the lifestyle rather than following a strict diet and an insane workout regimen for a short period of time. After all, being healthy and active makes you feel better, face fewer health problems, and sets an excellent example for your kids. If you think getting your family to live a more active lifestyle is an uphill task, here are some ideas that can come to your rescue. Check them out and shop at JCPenney for all the active and wellness essentials you may need.
Get the Family Moving
Schedule a time each day for family workouts or a fun activity, like a game of tag. Make sure your clothing is comfortable and appropriate for the activity. Pick the right activewear like tops, hoodies, sports bras, leggings, and shorts for everyone. While you’re at it, reach for proper footwear as well. Getting the entire family moving helps set a strong foundation for a lifetime of health.
Choose the Right Accessories
Staying fit also involves keeping close track of your health. Invest in a feature-rich smartwatch that lets your monitor your heart rate, calorie burned count, sleep quality, number of footsteps, etc. At the same time, find suitable water bottles and mugs to stay hydrated. Choose the right duffel and gym bags to carry and store your fitness gear. Don’t forget to select the right pair of earbuds to listen to your favorite tracks while running on the treadmill or jogging in the backyard.
Exercise along with healthy eating is the key to a healthy, active life. And with the right set of cookware and kitchen appliances, nobody can stop you from cooking one healthy meal after another. We aren’t talking about just smoothies, soups, and salads. With a reliable air fryer, you can fry, bake, grill, and roast with little to no oil. So, you can continue making crispy French fries, mozzarella sticks, fried chicken, and crispy veggies on special days of the week.
Relax and Breathe
Find a moment every day to rest and recharge. Surround yourself in the warmth of a lovely Turkish cotton bathrobe, some scented candles, and a massager. Slip into the bathtub and enjoy a beautiful bubble bath. In the bedroom, place an air purifier, mist humidifier, or diffuser and spend some time reading a good book. Get a must-deserved me time and get ready to take on a bright new day.
Create the most relaxing environment with the right bedding essentials like weighted blankets, bed pillows, mattress toppers, and sleep accessories. Next, set a consistent sleep schedule to follow on all days, weekends and vacations included. Keep the bedtime such that it is early enough for everyone to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep. To make the most of your sleeping time, turn off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before you hit the bed. Also, avoid a large dinner, and stick to a light, healthy snack if you’re hungry at night.
Following a healthy and active lifestyle is not always about having a stringent routine; it can be fun. In our busy and hectic lives, dedicating adequate time to exercising, eating right, and sleeping well can reap great health benefits for everyone in the family.
