Connecting With Teens #1 - Teens and Exercise
Is it time to get your teen moving? After all it is still winter break and there is no PE to assist in these endeavors. / Teens need to get out and move, even when they whine and complain about doing something active.  I constantly have to prod and get creative with how I get my teens active.  Sometimes I have them meet me at the end of a run, sometimes I invite their friends to go for a hike which pressures my own kids to go.  Either way, exercise is important for health but also for the sanity of our youthful children. / Another aspect to consider is that demonstrating this active lifestyle is important as well.  It starts with you first.  Lead the way and your teen will follow. / Please take a listen as Bernardo @connecting_with_teens discuss this topic of exercise with Eileen @thefitnessecologist. It's definitely worth the watch, and the statistics she provides are scary.  Time to get your teen moving, today. / Youtube Video available - https://youtu.be/na8ROeYMrcA / 📍Make sure to like and comment / 🚀Follow on Instagram @connecting_with_teens and @thefitnessecologist . 🎁Thanks for watching!🎁 .
