When I was growing up in West Jordan, my friends and I never ran out of things to do, and most of our activities provided at least a little bit of exercise. I have fond memories of playing kick-the-can on warm summer nights and swimming at the old West Jordan community pool.
Unfortunately, many of today’s West Jordan kids spend hours daily in sedentary activities. Exercise benefits our physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps you might enjoy participating in some of these with your son or daughter.
- Fly a kite (It’s even more fun if you sing the song from Mary Poppins while you are doing it.)
- Wheels: bike, skateboard, longboard, inline skates, rip stick, scooter (don’t forget a helmet!)
- Rake the yard
- Hula hoop
- Martial arts
- Hacky sack
- Weight lifting
I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Utah and like to share details about health concerns in my blog.
