3 Tips for a Healthy Family

Everyone aspires to have a healthy and happy family life. Fortunately, there are many ways to create a closer family unit and enhance your families health and wellbeing.

With this in mind, here are three tips for a healthy family. 

1. Exercise regularly
Exercise has a huge number of benefits to both your physical and mental health. The most obvious benefit of regular exercise is that is helps you stay physically fit and achieve your fitness goals. However, exercise can also have a hugely positive effect on your mental wellbeing and can be used as a natural treatment to fight depression and other mental health conditions. This is because physical activity releases endorphins in the brain which effectively boost mood and reduce feelings of anxiety or stress.

Exercising as a family is an excellent way to spend quality time together while improving your physical and mental health. Including some regular exercise in your week will help ensure that your family remains healthy and happy. You can stay fit as a family by walking or cycling wherever possible, switching passive TV watching for fun games in the garden, and signing up for charity walks or runs and training together as a family. 

2. Prepare nutritious meals
Diet plays a crucial role in your families overall health. People who stick with a healthy and nutritious diet are rewarded with a number of fantastic benefits. This includes - maintaining your ideal weight, improved skin and hair, and reduced risk of developing health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. Obviously you want to treat your family occasionally, but try to adopt healthy eating habits in your home that includes eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, preparing nutritious homemade meals, and limiting the amount of processed food and unhealthy snacks in the house.

You should try to switch to healthy alternatives such as baked vegetable crisps instead or traditional fried potato chips. Using olive oil in your cooking also offers many health benefits over other oil types. You can find plenty of useful information on the benefits of olive oil by visiting

3. Plan fun family outings
In today’s busy society, many people are balancing demanding jobs with family life and other daily commitments. For that reason, it can become difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance and spend enough quality time with your family members. However, it’s extremely important that you make time to see your family and spend time together without the stress of work, school or other responsibilities.

Try to set aside at least one night a week where the whole family get together and do fun activities like playing a board game or completing a family craft project. At the weekends, plan fun family outings like a trip to the park or a day at the beach. This will provide the opportunity to build stronger bonds and will give the whole family something to look forward to.

Use these three tips to help create a healthier and happier family life!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
