Improve Your Sleeping Habits

Everything you do during the day will be affected by the quality of sleep you had the night before. If you wake up feeling hazy in the morning, or find yourself feeling lethargic and sore throughout the day, it might be attributable to poor quality sleep.

To improve the quality of your family’s sleep, you should work on establishing a nightly routine that includes, turning off electronic devices long before bedtime, getting a little exercise when possible and adopting a consistent time to sleep — or, in other words, having a clear cut bedtime.

Sorry, kids.

Learn To Cope With Stress

It’s no secret that stress is the enemy. It affects the way you feel, function, eat, interact with others and sleep.

It’s not easy to learn stress coping techniques, but it’s necessary a necessary skill for maintaining a high quality of life. Teaching these skills to your kids will set them up for success later on. You can start by avoiding stress when possible, of course — but it’s not always that simple.

Make Movement A Part Of Your Daily Routine

This may seem obvious, but it’s important to focus on doing things that get your engines running, ideally on the daily. Periodic exercise is better than none, but a few simple steps can help you nail down an active routine that doesn’t feel like a chore.

Focus on getting that heart pumping as part of your daily routine, and in addition to it. Can you walk or bike with your kiddos or partner to work or school? Can you swap sceen time for casual yard play? What free classes are available in your cummunity?

While motivation may seem hard to muster at times, working movement into your day to day can help to make leading an active lifestyle second nature.

Have A Little Fun, Get a Little Health

As you worry about exercise, nutrition and getting plenty of sleep, you can’t forget to set aside time to have fun and enjoy life.

You can maximize the fun you have in life by daring to do the things you enjoy doing and by surrounding yourself with people who make you laugh — not just with a big cash investment. Think picnics in the park, craft time at home, and a family game night for a vibrant, fulfilling, and healthy life your whole clan will thrive on.
