It's Never too late: New Year's Resolutions for Family Fitness and Health ​

January 11, 2019

We are only 11 days into the New Year... it's not too late to evaluate your New Year Resolution's! It is never too late. Here are some healthy suggestions to incorporate into your daily routine for you and your family: 

New Year's Resolutions for Kids ​

  • I will try to find a sport (like basketball or soccer) or an activity (like playing tag, jumping rope, dancing, or riding my bike) that I like, and do it at least three times a week.​

  • I will drink milk and water and limit soda and fruit drinks.​

  • I will walk or bike to school when it's safe to do so.​

New Year's Resolutions for Teens ​

  • I will eat at least one fruit and one vegetable every day, and I will limit the amount of soda I drink.​

  • When I feel angry or stressed out, I will take a break and find constructive ways to deal with the stress, such as exercising, reading, writing in a journal or discussing my problem with a parent or friend.​

  • I will get plenty of sleep each night so that I am rested and ready to learn each day by putting my phone down and reading before 9:30 p.m.

New Year's Resolutions for Adults ​

  • I will think in small steps. If I start an exercise program, I will focus first on adopting the habit. When I attain my first goal, I will set the next one and raise the bar when I am ready.​

  • I will avoid using food as a reward for myself and my family.​

  • I will pack my lunch more often than eating out. 

 

New Year's Resolutions for Families ​

  • We will add at least one fresh fruit snack to our daily routine.​

  • We will switch to whole-grain bread, pasta, and cereals.​

  • We will spend 30 minutes outside playing together as often as possible

  • We will find a place that provides opportunities for the entire family to be physically active together ​

  • We will share a meal (whether it's dinner or breakfast) together most days of the week.​

Good luck and Happy New Year from BCMF!
