Inspire a Healthy Lifestyle

Practical Ways to Instill Healthy Habits

Mindful Eating
Eating healthful and mindful can be taught as early as toddler-hood and last a lifetime. Mindfulness seems like a new health trend but it has always been. Your child is born only really knowing how to eat and as he grows he is able to develop a healthy relationship with food simply by learning how it grows.

Regular Sleeping Patterns
A lack of sleep can result in ADHD-like symptoms in kids, Dr. Rapoport says. “Kids don’t react the same way to sleep deprivation as adults do,” he adds. “Whereas adults get sleepy, kids tend to get hyperactive.”

Communication is the Key to Living Together in Harmony
Communication skills may be verbal as well as non-verbal.

Singing Inspires Children to Get Creative
Children express their feelings and ideas through singing. Singing is one of the very first experiences when children are truly able to be creative and be self-expressive beings.

Reading Books Stimulates the Imagination
Numerous studies have shown the benefits of early literacy development. These benefits last beyond childhood.

 

Listen to Children as They Talk
Children will be more likely to open up to you when you show them you care and that you listen to them.

Self-Expression Through Creative Play
Exploring and being creative enhances cognitive skills: problem-solving, imagination as well as critical thinking.
