Celebrate National Bike Month by taking your children out for a bicycle ride around the local park or a bike trail. May is a perfect time to enjoy a family bike ride, before the summer heat sets in. According to Men’s Fitness, cycling is a lower-risk form of cardiovascular exercise and is low impact, so it’s easier on your legs, ankles, knees and feet. It’s also an awesome way for your family to get exercise and have fun while doing it!
In today’s world of technology and social media, the amount of time children spend on computers, phones, video games and TV is more than 56 hours per week (teens spend over 77 hours per week). In fact, children spend more time sitting in front of electronic screens than doing any other activity besides sleeping.
