EMB #216: Family First Fitness

Family First Fitness with Guy Waltman was a great interview where Guy and I talk about the importance of  address the family first. Now we’ve all heard or talked about who should we be addressing when it comes to health and wellness. Should we try to reach the parents, should we try to reach the kids first….suppose it sounds like the ‘the chicken or the egg’ scenario where at times neither seems right at times.

Where Guy brings up the interesting topic and incredibly valid points where explains neither one or the other is correct. In fact, if you really want to reach a family you do just that, you address them all at once as a unit, as a family.

3 Tips from Guy to Improve Your Health 

#1. Nutrition – get your children involved in nutrition in any way possible. Have them help at the grocery store, prepare meals, pick snacks, etc.

#2. Manage your stress through exercise. Living in a stressed out world, we need to find ways to reduce stress so why not use the #1 way to reduce stress…exercise.

#3. Sleep. Find ways to get enough or more sleep in the evening to help your body heal and recover.
