Health Tip: Do Things as a Family

(HealthDay News) — It’s important that all household members gather to eat and exercise together at least a few times during the week.

The American Heart Association suggests:

  • Keep a family schedule, and look for several 30-minute periods during the week when the entire family is available for exercise.
  • Pick a time for the entire family to gather and select the upcoming week’s menu.
  • Find ways to manage stress as a family.
  • Make sure everyone in the home does their part to help out. Young children can perform age-appropriate chores.
