Setting Yourself And Your Child Up For A Successful Summer Of Fun

Posted: December 26, 2017

By Master Christopher Rappold As with many parents, the feeling of summer and the children being out of school brings dreams of carefree unscheduled relaxation.  Days filled with sun, fun, contentment and laughter.  And while the season does usher in opportunities like this, being a parent for the past 16 years I can tell you it also can create, “I’m bored”, “There is nothing to do”, as well as a general slip in the positive lifestyle habits and routines that the school year helped to build.  Gone unnoticed, a summer can turn into a slide into a bottomless hole of Netflix and TV watching.   With this in mind, I wanted to share some advanced thinking so that you can be a step ahead in the planning process for your family.  Continuing with a theme I started in a recent blog, I do believe keeping yourself physically, mentally and spiritually growing is not a seasonal activity, rather it is a year-round lifestyle.  


6 Tips for Keeping the Summer Body You Want

By Master Christopher Rappold #1 Where are you now?   Understanding where you are now is important in measuring forward progress.  Some common measurements are waist size, weight, body composition cardio or strength maximums.  Pick a couple of the measurements that make the most sense to you and check in with yourself every week.  By simply keeping your eye on those numbers that matter to you, you are more likely to make positive progress.
