5 tips to go back to school with a slimmer waist (Featured Article)

5 tips to help your child go back to school with a slimmer waist, more confidence and less stress!

 By Dr. Fitness aka Max Sturdivant

 

·        Get to know your Child: Getting to know your child and seeing things from his or her point of view. Find out  how they feel about exercise and learn what exercises and healthy foods they like it will help you help them learn to trust themselves. This kind of nurturing cements together the positive blocks of self-worth, and can also repair them.   

 

 

·        Heal yourself: improve your  health forgive yourself focus on your positive healthy behaviors.. less time you beat up on yourself... you have more time to create successful healthy habits and increasing the amount of activity and increasing the foods you eat high in antioxidants.

·        PLAY WITH YOUR CHILD As a busy person, I had a hard time getting down to my son's level and enjoying unstructured, seemingly unproductive play. After all, I had so many "more important" things on my agenda. Once I realized how much we both  benefit, this special time became meaningful. Playtime puts us on our child's level, helping us parents get behind the eyes and into the mind of our children.

·        SET YOUR CHILD UP TO SUCCEED Helping your child develop talents and acquire skills is part of discipline. If you recognize an ability in your child that he doesn't, encourage him. Strike a balance between pushing and protecting. Both are necessary. If you don't encourage your child to try, his skills don't improve, and you've lost a valuable confidence builder. If you don't protect your child from unrealistic expectations, his sense of competence is threatened. "Back to School weekend Workout"

·        remove  labels "I'm not very athletic," 16 year-old  proudly said to me when his mom brought him to my office. Indeed, he hadn't developed his coordination, but that lack of physical development was much easier to correct than the emotional side effects of his label. I mentioned privately to his mom at the Back to School Boot Camp, that there are two issues to address in any child with delayed onset of coordination and athletism,  the physical and the emotional. Every child searches for an identity and, when it found, they cling  to it like a trademark. "unathletic" had become his label, and he wore it often. His whole day revolved around  this belief, and his family focused on this part of instead of on the whole person. Instead of feeling compassion, his brothers and sisters had become tired of planning their lives around his unathletic belief. They couldn't go on certain trips like hikes or bike rides because he might get too tired. It became a family problem, and So, we made a deal. I would improve his physical conditioning and  the family would enjoy his abilities, and we all worked at giving "him" a healthier label to wear.
