Being around so many families, including my own, I have learned that leading by example is the best thing to do. It’s not about what one says they will do, it’s about what one actually does.
Have you ever heard the phrase “Children don’t follow what you say, they follow what you do?” All of this above, I have learned over the years.
A healthy family starts with an example. It only takes that one person in the family to be active to invite those around them to also be active. It only takes that one person in the family to start eating better and invite those around them to do the same.
I’m grateful for summers in Prescott because we have so many family friendly hikes, parks, activities, etc. that can better everyone as a whole.
When it comes to better food choices for families when participating in outdoor activities, I recommend stopping into places like Sprouts, grabbing healthy snacks, getting a healthy sandwich from the deli, saving money and time.
Together is always better than alone, so if you are wanting to get healthier ask another family member to join, find something you all can do together and lead by example.
Healthy can be fun too!
