My 4 year old daughter comes home from preschool and recounts her day for me. She is so excited on the days she gets to go to Creative Movement. It is the best part of her day. They get to play, run, jump, and dance. The word exercise (for most adults) conjures memories of running laps, kickball, heat, sweat, and pain. As adults how can we recapture that excitement about exercise and ensure that our children don’t lose their joy of movement.
We can start by playing…playing with our kids, our spouse, and our friends. We live in an amazing city with so many things to do on any given weekend. Here is just a sampling of the wonderful things you can do with your family or friends just because you live in Austin!
Visit the Lakes
Veloway (bike and skate)
Take a Hike (Trails)
Pick your own Fruit (Sweet Berry Farms)
