Even Kids Can Struggle with Motivation

Adults can often find it difficult to stay motivated and on track when attempting to improve their health and fitness. Children also feel this struggle and could use a bit of help in this regard. Below are some tips from Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC which can help!

Smaller Goals

Focusing on an end-goal can often be defeating as progress isn’t always as quick as we would like it to be. Instead, break down their final goal into smaller achievable parts. For example, if your child’s goal is to lose a set amount of weight, break it into quarters and celebrate each time your child reaches one of those milestones. Of course, it’s also important to provide an appropriate reward to keep their spirits up and their mind on track.

Apps Can Help

If your child uses an electronic device then there is an app available which can help. Apps which track workouts and exercises, track food intake and make alternate suggestions, or even send push notifications to their device screen to help keep them motivated can be a great benefit to reaching their goal.

Group Exercise

Children’s group exercise is not only effective but it’s also fun! By joining a local group exercise class, your child can enjoy the benefits which come with improving their health and fitness along with learning about how they can continue their progress outside of the group and even make new friends!
