Now that schools are out all over Northwest Arkansas and summer activities are starting, it’s important to not let healthy habits go on vacation, too!
A bit of ice cream is fun any time, especially when it’s hot. But make sure your kids are still getting a balanced diet of low-fat proteins, vegetables, and fruit. Keeping summer fruit cut up in an easily accessible container in the fridge is great for the summer months!
Swimming and other fun outdoor activities are common in summer but so can the tendency to just want to spend time under the air conditioning watching TV. It’s important to find balance and to do whatever the activity is safely. Make sure your kids aren’t getting overheated in the hot sun.
Have you heard of the summer slump? Vacation travel, hot afternoons, or well, pretty much any time is a great time for them to keep their reading skills up by enjoying a good book. You can help them keep their reading skills up to par between the school years by simply taking them to the library to check out books.
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you can slouch! Maintaining good posture habits will help keep your children’s spine healthy now and in the future.
Avoid the urge to take a three-month-long break from your family’s adjustments. Especially with your child being active, you want to make sure they are maintaining their spine and overall health with regular chiropractic care.
