So often, parents make sure that their kids get exercise but ignore themselves.

What’s a parent to do?! Get creative!

Do you take your child to soccer or football practice?

Instead of just sitting in a lawn chair and reading that book, consider taking a walk or two around the field.

In fact, invite a few parents with you.

Your conversations may be just the distraction you need to walk faster and farther.

Look out for errant balls!

Have you signed your child up to a class or two at the community center?

Consider taking a class yourself at the same time.

Adult classes are ever increasing in variety.

Strive to go outside your comfort zone.

Be a source of inspiration to your children.

Kids love trying new things.

Maybe it’s time for you to try martial arts or the newest dance craze.
