With a few goals though, we bet that you can have you and your family healthier than ever! Here are some tips from Disney movies about being healthy in the new year.

 

Get Moving! Whether it be a family walk, or a muddy backyard soccer game, get your family up and out of the house!

Skip the chips and bring snacks on family outings such as carrots, nuts, or apples!

Get enough sleep! Children need 10 or more hours per night, and adults need 8!

Keep the baby healthy too! A healthy life starts early.

Avoid drinking too much caffeine. It can make you feel jittery and disrupt your sleep schedule. Over the long term it can also give you high blood pressure.

Have a good attitude about eating healthy and it will be an example for the whole family!

Step two: Make sure you have the right gear, such as, running shoes!

Running Competitor gives 5 fool proof steps to making sure you get the correct running shoes

1-Visit a local running store to have your gait analyzed based on your foot type and biomechanics.

2- Choose which feel is right for you.

3- Make sure you have a half to a full thumb’s nail length from your big toe to the end of the shoe.

4- Before buying, take a short run around the store to test the fit, function and comfort before you make your final purchase.

5-To prevent injuries replace your shoes every 300 to 400 miles depending on the surface that you run.

**Just in case you have had a few too many Mike’s (is there really such a thing as too many?!?!) before trying to tie your new shoes here is a song to help you along!

Or if drinking evokes super human skills for you, you can tie your shoe like this!

Step Three: Find a good running buddy or group.

Step Four: Run!!

Run at least three days a week and gradually increase your time and distance to build endurance.

Step Five: Rest and Hydrate

No one expects you to be ready for a 5k over night. Take your time and build up your endurance and make sure to rest and hydrate between running sessions.

** May we suggest a Mike’s Frozen Pouch?!
