Family Goals for A Fit and Healthy 2020

Posted by Jack & Lily on March 7th, 2020

Goals are usually made for personal improvements—getting fit, getting better at something, reading more. This year, let’sfocus on family.  It’s a fun and easy way to stay true to your promise when you’re all striving for the same goal and are accountable for each other.

Host a family meeting (with healthy treats, of course) and make it a fun discussion, deciding which resolutions are best for your fitness needs. Don’t forget to include grandma and grandpa or any aunts, uncles, cousins and even close family friends that might want to join in, too! The more, the merrier.

For best results, stick to just a few resolutions and make them manageable, realistic, and specific. For instance, you can set a goal like “Walk around the neighborhood every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday” instead of “Work out daily”.

Here are some general ideas to get each member of your family thinking about their goals:

For the kids:

  • I will pick an activity or a sport that I really like and do it at least three times a week.
  • I will drink more water and limit sugary drinks and soda.
  • I will bike or walk to school, as long as it is safe.
  • I will choose healthier snacks instead of eating junk food.

For the teens:

  • I will eat at least one vegetable and one fruit daily.
  • I will limit my purchase of sugary and caffeinated drinks.
  • I will be more mindful of my health by making better food choices and doing more physical activity at least three times a week.
  • I will stop using my phone and stop watching Netflix an hour before bedtime and read a book instead.

For the adults:

  • I will make better food choices for my children, such as less processed foods, whole grain breads, and fresh vegetables and fruits.
  • I will find an activity or a sport that I like and do that for at least three times a week.
  • I will stop stress-eating.

For the entire family:

  • We will limit eating out. If there’s something to celebrate, we can try to prepare something at home instead of ordering take-out or having food delivered.
  • Eat less fast food. Maybe just once a month!
  • We will find time to go a park or enjoy any activity that encourages physical activity (i.e. hiking or an evening walk).

These are just some ideas—you can certainly put together your own. List them down and put that list on the kitchen fridge or any spot where everyone can see it daily.
