Five Ways Families Can Improve Health and Fitness in the New Year Ways Families Can Improve Health and Fitness in the New Year<p>It's that time of year again - time to focus on New Year's resolutions. Making your family better, stronger and healthier may require just a few simple tweaks. It's been proven that the key to success is setting small, attainable goals. Here are some New Year's resolutions that families can work on together to get healthy and fit in the New Year:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li><strong>Play together</strong>. Spend time outside playing together as often as possible, regardless of the weather. Go skating, build a snow fort or go tobogganing – fun for the whole family!</li><li><strong>Join a family-friendly gym</strong>. Find a place that provides opportunities for the entire family to be physically active together or offers child care and after-school programs.</li><li><strong>Pencil it in</strong>. Add physical activity or play time to the calendar, with the same commitment as other important meetings. Schedule an evening walk or a fitness class – seeing it on the calendar will help motivate your family to stay on track.</li><li><strong>Set goals</strong>. Pick a fun run/walk or 5K to do as a family, like <a href="">YMCA Move to Give</a>. Sign up, train as a family and participate in it together.</li><li><strong>Make healthy meals together.</strong> Allowing kids to participate in cooking healthy meals and snacks can make them more adventurous to try foods they may not usually eat. It's more satisfying to eat something you helped chop, stir or season!</li></ul><p>For more information about programs offered at the Y for the whole family, please visit <a href=""></a>.     </p><p><em>Information provided by the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka (</em><em><a href=""></a>)</em></p>
Information from the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit from the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit<p><strong>Is Homework Stressing You Out? </strong><br><strong> </strong>Throughout the year, your child may have homework or need to spend time studying at home. You can help make homework time less stressful. First, let your child relax with a healthy snack when they get home from school. Ask if they have homework, what kind, and how long they think it will take to finish. It's a good idea to set a regular time each day and decide on a specific place to do homework. Your child might need help for a couple minutes to get started.</p><p>Looking for more parenting support? Speak with a public health nurse by calling 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 or visit the health unit website at <a href=""></a>.<br><br><strong>Questions About Your Child's Health?</strong> <br><strong> </strong>Health Connection offers free, confidential health information from nurses and health inspectors on: </p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>How your child is growing, parenting tips, fast and healthy meals, safe food and water, common illnesses, keeping kids safe, fun family activities</li><li>Health unit programs such as vaccinations and dental care</li><li>Community resources for parenting, mental health, addictions, quitting smoking or financial help<br> <br></li></ul><p>Contact Health Connection at 1-705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or <a href=""></a>.
