4. Exercise

I know as well as the next parent how hard it can be to fit in exercise on a regular basis. However, I try to make it a priority so my kids see it as a way of life instead of something they have to get done.

I lift weights while we watch television and a good majority of the time, they get up and do the same. Even my preschooler can lift a one-pound weight a few times. I also try to play active games such as basketball or Frisbee with them whenever I can. That way I’m modeling healthy habits while also getting to spend some quality time with my kids.
