TAKE THE STAIRS BOOK
8.5” x 5.5” book
Doing the small things to stay healthy
Teach your kids that exercise doesn’t always mean going to the gym, going for runs, taking 45-60 minutes out of the day to “stay healthy.” Instead, it’s doing the small things, and getting the bigger exercise when you want to, not when you have to.
...........Take the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator. Sweep the driveway instead of using the leaf blower. Park at the back of the parking lot. Carry a basket rather than pushing a cart when possible. Hand-wash the car.
If you feel the urge, do something, even for 5 minutes. Get up and dance, do jumping jacks, one set of pushups, whatever . . . it’s great for the body and mind, and doesn’t have to be a big workout.
And finally, going for walks = exercise + relieves stress. Take different routes, find hills and stairs, push the pace . . . and stop and stretch now and then.......
