It's that time again: A new year with new heath goals? New Year's resolutions can be a healthy process, but they may not include an action plan. Instead of making a resolution by yourself, make it a family effort!
Get together and discuss a positive health behavior each person will work towards this year, or choose a family behavior. Think of the goal as an opportunity to enhance your family's current routine to improve the health of the entire home.
Some examples include consuming two more servings of fruits and veggies every day, walking as a family three times a week for 30 minutes, or engaging in healthy practices like better oral hygiene and less screen time. Whatever you choose, make it count and make it specific. Write out a specific goal as a family, include how and when everyone will work towards the goal, and identify how your family will know when you have met the goal.
What better way to celebrate new beginnings than with those you love most?
