How to Motivate your Kids to be Active

With a society that’s more technology-driven than ever, it’s important to keep your kids active and moving. Instead of letting your kids veg out in front of the television or computer – even if they’re doing something educational – make it a point to engage them in at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Some of this activity happens in gym and at recess at school, but you can keep it going at home.

You know your kids better than anyone, so appeal to what interests them and what is available in your local community as far as playgrounds, recreational activities, or sports teams. Start while they’re young to set them up for a healthier, more active future.
