Finding ways to keep kids healthy, especially when life gets stressful, can be challenging. As a parent, I look at it as my job to help my kids manage stress and keep their bodies healthy. I know that the habit they develop know will stick with them for a lifetime and I want to make sure that they are establishing good habits.
This time of year is a great time to work on establishing healthy habits. The winter blahs are real. I see it set in for me every year and I know my kids experience it too.
It’s hard when the weather is a bit dreary out and the excitement of the holidays are over. Once we get through Valentine’s Day I always feel like I’m just waiting for spring.
Don’t worry, though. We have some tips to help you keep your kids (and you) healthy and above the winter blahs.
