October is Family Health Month and it is the perfect time to make lasting and meaningful lifestyle changes that will benefit your entire family! Family health is what guides our choices in diet, how active our lifestyles are, and how we manage our emotions. Building a health compass for your family will empower them to make healthy choices every day.

Here are a few ways you can improve your family’s health:

1. Give dinnertime in your household a makeover! Throughout the day we all have our own busy schedules and dinnertime is a great opportunity to come together and bond over a meal.

2. Get enough sleep. Work with your family to establish a healthy sleep schedule.

3. Stay active in every season. Physical activity such as playing outside or taking a walk together can boost your family’s health!
