While it is important to make your health a priority, following a healthy lifestyle should be a goal for every member of the family.

That’s why, during the month of May, our team at AFC Urgent Care Chapman Highway wants to show you ways you can make not only your health a priority, but your family’s health overall a priority.

How Can You Work Together as a Family to Promote Better Health?

There is something to working as a group.

When you have each other for motivation, you are more likely to meet your goals of exercising regularly, getting enough sleep and eating healthier. Therefore, make it a goal this month to get healthy as a family!

Benefits of Being a Healthy Family

  • Increased physical health
  • Improved independence
  • A sense of belonging
  • Improved mood
  • A longer, healthier life

What If I Have Already Slacked on My Resolutions for the Year?

While January always seems to be the month where everyone starts to focus on living a healthier life, there is something to starting fresh in the spring and summer.

During these months, there is less pressure behind the resolutions, so that you don’t have to focus on the disappointment of not hitting your New Year’s resolutions, but the fact you can have a fresh, overall start to living a longer, healthier life!

Ways to Incorporate Healthy Habits

  • Change eating habits.
  • Explore local parks.
  • Host an active family game night.
  • Establish a vegetable garden.
  • Set activity goals.
  • Maintain a regular bedtime and wake time.
