Dear Isheeria’s Healing Circles Readers,

Welcome to another article on #childobesity by  Shreya Roy of Maasai Fitness. Let’s talk about our teenagers and their health.

Have you ever heard or advised that kids should not exercise until they were in their teens? 
Well, things have changed!
India has the second highest number of obese children in the world after China, according to an alarming study which found that 14.4 million kids in the country have excess weight.
We can change these facts! If parents and mentors alike can promote a healthy lifestyle by encouraging our kids to start exercising earlier, we can prevent things like disease, broken bones, & depression.

5 reasons your kids should exercise at an early (or earlier) age:
  1) Create Habits

According to Maxwell Maltz, it takes 21 days to build any habit. By encouraging, requiring, & promoting children to exercise on a regular basis, we are forming early habits.


2) Build Healthy Bones & Muscles

In order to strengthen our kid’s bones and muscles, we must encourage them to participate in weight-bearing activities. Starting at an early age to strengthen bones & muscles can help prevent injuries later on.  in their more difficult workouts.


3) Prevent Disease

Obesity can cause a number of health problems & diseases including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and many forms of cancer. When a child is obese, their likelihood of developing said diseases increases significantly. Encouraging a healthy lifestyle including better nutrition and regular exercise can decrease their chances of facing these life-altering diseases.


4) Promote Good Sleeping Patterns

When people exercise regularly, their sleep patterns improve.According to a study done by The National Sleep Foundation, if an individual gets about 150 minutes of exercise a week, there is a 65% improvement in sleep quality.

Keep in mind, however, that exercise should not be done immediately before bed.


 5) Reduce Stress


Endorphins are released when we participate in a physical activity making you feel happier and relaxed.We can improve our kids mental & emotional state simply through exercise.

It is up to us to encourage our children and teach them the importance of healthy lifestyle at an early age.
Join hands with Maasai Fitness to bring about awareness & educate your kids about healthy eating & healthy lifestyle.
