Today’s Fit Children, Tomorrow’s Healthy Adults.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Project Management

Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.       John F. Kennedy

Today’s active kids are tomorrow’s healthy adults. Yet children and adolescents are not moving enough which is a serious concern considering we are living in a melting pot of chronic diseases. Our society will pay the price for young people’s profound lack of exercise if we fail to turn the trend around.

Today’s active kids are tomorrow’s healthy adults. Yet children and adolescents are not moving enough which is a serious concern considering we are living in a melting pot of chronic diseases. Our society will pay the price for young people’s profound lack of exercise if we fail to turn the trend around.

According to guidelines, children need minimum an HOUR of MODERATE to VIGROUS intensity exercise every day along with muscle strengthening and bone strengthening workout to stay fit and healthy. Even to excel at any sports, the basic fitness level of any budding athelete is of utmost importance.

The other benefits of regular physical exercise are

  1. Reduces the risk of obesity and childhood diabetes
  2. It boosts academic performances
  3. It improves confidence, leadership and team building qualities.
  4. It improves mental health, thus reduces anxiety, aggression mood swings and depression all related to the stresses of daily life.

As parents some ways to keep kids active are:

  1. Make physical activity part of the daily routine from household chores to an after dinner walks together.
  2. Allow enough time for free play. Kids can burn more calories and have more fun when left to their own.
  3. Kids are not miniature adults, tailor activities to age, stage and stability and their interest. Not every child wants to be a sports person but that doesn’t mean he or she should be deprived of any form of physical exercise.
  4. Look for after school exercise opportunity. It is okay to enroll for some hobby classes but make sure they get some time to do simple activities like cycling, running, skipping or play outdoors.
  5. Encourage healthier approach to diet
  6. Control screen time especially during meals and within 1 hour of sleep.
  7. Be a ROLE MODEL and stay active together, which along with giving benefits of staying fit will also provide an opportunity for a family bonding time. How about Sunday morning running sessions.!!

It is never too late to start an activity program and as parents it becomes our responsibility to raise fit, healthy and happy kids.
