How to Set Healthy Habits with Your Kids

Whether we like it or not, our children learn more from watching the actions of their parents than from hearing what they’re told to do. Kids are always analyzing the way their parents carry out their daily tasks, routines and lives, and they pick up on more than you’d expect. If you’re looking to instill some healthy habits in your children this Spring, one of the most impactful ways you can do so is by pursuing healthy goals together as a family.

A good place to start is by carving out some time as a family to discuss your health and wellness goals. Maybe you want to prioritize spending more time playing outside, eating more fresh foods and vegetables, or minimizing screen time. Whatever you and your child’s goals are, taking the time to discuss them together will help your child see why these goals matter and how they can improve the health and happiness of your family.

To make the journey fun, you can use a visual goal tracker to keep up with everyone’s progress. Visually tracking your goals will help your child be more engaged in the process, and can become a source of encouragement and motivation when you have a visual reference of where you stand and what you’ve achieved so far.

To help you get started, these printable wellness wheels designed by CreditRepair are perfect for mapping out your goals visually and solidifying them for your kids. By tracking your daily habits in a fun, colorful way, you can ensure your child enjoys the process and has something to look forward to each day. 

Happy Spring, and here’s to healthier, happier families everywhere!
