Tips on how to get your children off their Gadgets and into a Swim Spa!
August 13th, 2013
1. Discuss with your children the health consequences of spending too much time on electronic devices at the expense of physical activity, such as swimming in the swim spa or spa. If they know that sedentary activities have real health consequences, even at their age, they may be more motivated to get moving.
2. Have a family meeting to decide together what the right mix of time is for your family on electronic devices versus physical activities. The key is working together to set goals, making kids part of the decision-making process.
3. If you don’t own a swim spa or spa, ask your children if they would swim more if you made a commitment to get them to a swim spa on a regular basis. You might be surprised at how willing the kids will be to unplug if given the opportunity to swim. Or locate the municipal or community pool in your area, find out the hours of operation, and build in time to get their with your children.
4. Lead by example. Show your interest in spending face-to-face time with your children. Explain to them how too much time on electronic devices can be socially isolating. Let your children know that you are also willing to turn off your computer, smart phone and television to have fun with them.
Outside of the obvious fun it can provide, swimming is also a good form of physical activity. The benefits include improved cardiovascular health, increased strength and flexibility, motor skills development, weight management…and management of asthma symptoms.
A well-maintained swimspa — one with proper chlorine level and pH — is key to making swimming a truly healthy activity. In fact the proper balance not only makes swimming a healthy activity for asthma-sufferers, but also reduces the risk of swimming-related ear infections as well as diarrhea from waterborne germs.
