Everybody needs the right amount of exercise, but it may be difficult for you and family members to fit physical activity into a busy schedule.
The U.S. National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute suggests:
- Identify common free time that you could use for family activity.
- Schedule exercise after dinner with family, or on weekends.
- Stay motivated by joining an exercise group, or by signing your kids up for community sports.
- Plan on activities that don’t depend on good weather, such as indoor cycling, indoor swimming, stair climbing, rope skipping, mall walking, dancing, or active games that you can play indoors.
