Family Exercise Creates Happiness and Health

Somewhere along the way, exercise fell on the backburner. Whereas children once played outdoors and regularly participated in team sports, today you’re more likely to find them glued to their smartphone or television screen.

In fact, the average teen might spend an average of nine hours a day online. Eight-to-12-year olds spend an average of six hours. Balancing all that screen time with academic and other requirements often leaves little time for fitness. 

As a result, fewer children today meet exercise requirements. The 2008 US Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that children and adolescents (six to 17) should get an hour or more of physical activity daily. 

Most don’t. Only 21.6 percent of American children and adolescents (six to 19) got at least an hour’s worth of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity at least five days a week. 

Physical education (PE) classes have also taken a hit: About half (51.6 percent) of high school students attended PE classes during an average week. For some children, that might be the only opportunity to get exercise during the day.

Joint Health Perspective

A joint is any place where two or more bones connect, including your shoulder, elbow, knee, and jaw.(1) Adults have over 200 joints, which allow for mobility, flexibility, and the ability to stay physically active.(2) Joint pain can occur as a result of the aging process or injury, and can appear as discomfort, pain, or inflammation from any part of your joint.(3) Fortunately, you can help prevent joint disorders or reduce the severity of pain and other symptoms. 

Use these strategies to support optimal joint health, naturally.
