Exercising with Your Family
It’s not too late to make a resolution to exercise more and spend quality time with your family. Combining both can lead to long-term benefits for you and your children’s health and their academics.
“I would say that probably the biggest reason that I would want parents to incorporate physical activity with their children is that children are going to practice what they see their parents doing,” Tammy Camp, M.D., Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine Pediatrics Residency director, and Texas Tech Physicians pediatrician, said. “If parents are not physically active, or they’re being physically active, but their kids never see it, then their kids don’t have the motivation or the understanding that exercise is an important part of life.”
