FIT-KID GUIDE

Herworld (Malaysia) - - KIDS TAKEOVER -

“These fun and easy tips mo­ti­vate chil­dren like me to make healthy life­style choices and stay fit,” says Alia Abu Bakar Fikri.

1 EX­ER­CISE TO­GETHER

One of the sim­plest ways to make ex­er­cise more fun and con­sis­tent is to do it in a group or with a part­ner. Be it a morn­ing run or ex­er­cis­ing at the gym – ev­ery­thing is bet­ter with com­pany!

2 RE­WARD YOUR­SELF

Set a goal each time you ex­er­cise – and re­ward your­self! For ex­am­ple, you could have a very busy day in school with ex­tra classes. Set a goal of walk­ing 10,000 steps, and once you’ve com­pleted it, re­ward your­self with some­thing nice (e.g. ice cream or slime in your favourite colour). You should give your­self a re­ward as this will help keep you mo­ti­vated, so you’ll go on to com­plete fu­ture tasks that you’ve set for your­self.

3 CHANGE VENUES

Go­ing to the park and play­ing with the wide va­ri­ety of equip­ment is great ex­er­cise! The next day, you could go to the gym and run on the tread­mill, go for a yoga class to re­lax your mind, or even come up with some ex­er­cises to do while fin­ish­ing your chores. With your chores and ex­er­cise done, you’ll free up even more time in your day!

4 PUT YOUR FAVOURITE MU­SIC ON

Ex­er­cis­ing in si­lence can be bor­ing, and can make you lose in­ter­est fast. Try ex­er­cis­ing to up­beat mu­sic that will lift up your spir­its! Match dif­fer­ent types of mu­sic to dif­fer­ent work­out rou­tines. It will lighten up your mood and make time fly by.

5 TRY DIF­FER­ENT EX­ER­CISES

Go run­ning one day, and jump like a kan­ga­roo or do house chores on an­other day. Dif­fer­ent ex­er­cises will keep your in­ter­est go­ing while work­ing dif­fer­ent mus­cles! You’ll also find your favourite, which you’ll feel com­fort­able do­ing with a friend or alone. Yoga is a great one to do at the end of the week, be­cause you would have just done a long week of unique ex­er­cises.

These are some ways to make ex­er­cise easy and fun for you, your friends, and your fam­ily. I hope you can in­cor­po­rate these ideas into your daily rou­tine. En­joy and have fun!
