Behaviors of a person are mostly rooted from his/her childhood, and a child acquires the behaviors from his/her family. As a parent, then, you are responsible for the lifestyle of your children.

One of many elements of a good lifestyle is health, which is significantly affected by habits. Here, we are going to discuss routines that can promote healthy lifestyle four our family members.

Washing feet & hands

Outdoor activities bring the germs to the house. You never know what has been hitchhiking on you, your spouse, and your kids. Your hands are the most vulnerable body part that can get exposed to germs. And your, feet, even if they might be covered in socks and shoes, are the ideal breeding place for fungus, and other parasitical microorganisms. Ever wondered why feet could smell so bad after a long day of wearing shoes?

Worldwide, kids under the age of five years old are the highest victims of diarrhea and pneumonia that can be prevented by simply a good habit of washing hands.

Regular dental care

Clinics that have sites should be preferable these days. The first reason is that you can give your feedback easily. And you can share it on your social media. Not only you do good to yourself, but also to the clinic and the people on your friend list. And, if the service is bad, you can also make constructive feedback for the clinic to improve.

Family active outing

For an example, you can bring your entire family to try kayaking. One kayak can contain up to two people.

The rowing movement and the balance control will activate and develop your motor control of the muscles. For kids, kayaking is even more beneficial than to adults. They will get the chance to improve their confidence and trust in you. Partnering up first, and then allowing them to try paddling the kayak alone will surely be a healthy challenge.
