    Cleaning the baseboards is probably something I should be doing right now! Lol. Love these!

      Katie, bonding time during a family walk is a fantastic bonus on top of the exercise you get!

    We have an Australian Shepherd who is a herding dog. We play “Run away!” If you’ve ever been herded by an Aussie, not known for their gentle techniques, then you’d know what great incentive it is to run fast and stop quick. Hugely fun game and everyone gets the exercise.

    Love these ideas! It’s so important to exercise as a family; I normally dance whilst hoovering, but I hadn’t thought to get everyone involved and clean the baseboards. Normally I just end up cleaning myself!!

      Annie, the kids will help with the housework, get exercise and have fun all at the same time!!

    Love these ideas! Housework is a great way to get moving and cross some stuff off the to-do list.

    Great ideas for keeping active! I love the activities where you don’t actually realize you are getting exercise. I wish I had a job that required more movement. Sitting at a desk all doesn’t help!

      Thanks Meagan! It is hard when you sit at a desk. It takes a bit of creativity to stay active in that situation.
