March is considered the healthiest month of the year simply because that’s when weather starts to warm up enough for people to explore the great outdoors again. It’s also the month when kids get out for spring break! That’s why the master-planned community of Caliterra in Dripping Springs is sharing a few ways that you and your kids can stay active this month and all through summer.
Enjoy an After-Meal Walk
Set aside some time after dinner to take a walk as a family. Not only will this give you ample family time, but it will also help your food to digest faster. For best results, don’t go for a walk immediately after eating. Instead, give your food a little bit of time to settle. You can set that time aside to clean up and wash dishes. Also, make a rule of no technology on these walks so you and your family can have some true family time without any distractions.
Choose Healthier Snacks at the Grocery Store
While snacks such as chips and cookies are tasty, they aren’t the best option. Make the switch to purchasing healthier snacks like fruits, granola bars and nuts. These types of foods are much better for you and provide your body with vital nutrients.
Create an Obstacle Course in Your Backyard
If you’re looking for something a little more fun and interactive than a walk, try creating your own obstacle course! Our new homes in Dripping Springs offer plenty of yard space for you and your family to play and run around. Here are a few ideas for building your own obstacle course.
When it comes to staying active and being healthy this month, try these three things. Our master-planned community of new homes in Dripping Springs makes it easy for you and your family to stay active with great outdoor amenities!
