Every holiday season is the same, you promise yourself you won’t fall into your old habits but you still do. The excessive consumption of food while lying on the couch with your entire family. The same behavior that cause you feeling tired, heavy and unmotivated… And deep inside, you want it to be different, and it can be different… should you only commit yourself to the change. The change can start with a plan, to do things differently this year. And not only for you, but for your whole family. Here are some ideas for you for a healthy activity for the family on the holidays.
A Healthy Family Activity at Home
If you wish to stay at home during the holidays, you can plan the shared activity to be at home. You can use the backyard for it or even in your own living room. If you want the activity to be inside, you can choose a mental healthy activity such as educational board games, you can choose from a very wide selection of board games that will improve your math, language, history and even life skills.
If you have a backyard and the weather is nice, you can plan a family sport activity, such as soccer, catch, hide and seek, or even training your family dog! The idea is to both move your body while having a good time with those your love most. Which will be benefiting to both your physical and mental health.
Out to Nature
Why staying at home when you finally get a break to enjoy with your family? Make the most out of the holidays with a family hike or ride out in the nature – a walk by the beach, a bicycle ride in the forest, a picnic out at the desert with fun activities planned for the entire family.
The bottom line is, that your holidays will be as you plan it to be. Invest the time and effort to make a plan so each member of your family can enjoy. Encourage your family to get on board with the plan – you can do so by asking them to help you with the planning part and ask them for more ideas and suggestions of what they would like to do. Remember – the holidays allows us the time to enjoy with our families and do things that on the daily race we don’t have the time for – make the best out of it!
