Set a healthy example for your children Huron Church Chiropractic Windsor Ontario Here are some suggestions to consider:

Activity level – How physically active are you? Are you and your children getting the right amount of exercise?

Eating habits – Generally children eat what their parents prepare or purchase. Are you setting a healthy example? Are their areas of your diet (and thereby your children’s) that can be improved?

Healthy body image – Your children ‘pick up’ and may imitate what you focus on. If you complain about being overweight, as example, your children may mimic this unhealthy behaviour. Transition your focus to health and away from appearance for your and your children’s benefit.

Practice proactive health – Establishing good health as a priority in your life will benefit your children as they grow and mature into teens and adults. Concentrate on maintaining good health, rather than managing sickness. Schedule regular check-ups with your family doctor, see your dentist twice a year and of course, make time for regular chiropractic care.
