How to Make Managing MOOD a Priority

What's best is for everyone to manage their moods in healthy ways. That's just what you'll learn in the articles in the MOOD section of Raising FIT Kids.

Learning healthy ways to manage stress as a family and keeping tabs on everyone's emotional health is just as important as choosing healthy foods, making time for physical activity, and getting plenty of sleep.

Healthy family time can not only improve everyone’s mood but impact every FIT component.

  • Find ways to move together -- go for walks, play catch, or dance to some music.
  • Take time to plan and prepare meals together. Families that eat meals together are more likely to make better food choices and less likely to be overweight.
  • Sit at the table together to eat to give you time to find out what's going on in your children's lives. Giving children your time and attention is one of the best things you can do for their emotional health -- and yours.
