Get Busy Out There

With the weather getting warm and in between the raindrops we all get the itching to get out side and have some fun. It is no surprise that May is National Physical fitness and Sports Month With the long winter of being inside now is a great time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle. The U.S department of health advises that youth get 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. For some this may be a problem because of where they live, learn and play. 

Physical activity not only offers better physical health but regular activity also provides cognitive health benefits as well. Research has proven that children that are physically active also get higher grades and have better attendance. First Lady Michelle Obama has placed interest in children exercise and fitness for quite some time. Lets Move!! was created to end childhood obesity as well as a brighter future for nations youth. 

There are many activities that you can do to keep our children and ourselves happy and healthy. Our children participate in little league sports. Softball, tee-ball, basketball and soccer are all ways we keep our children busy. How do you keep your children out there and busy??
