Combining Life Insurance with Family Fit Lifestyle Month

Raising a Family

Are you looking for ways to get your family in a fit lifestyle? There is no better time than the month of January. This is the month where there are area fitness facilities who offer free trial periods of 10-30 days. You can take advantage of their equipment and facility without having to sign a contract. Even if you do not see anything advertised for a free trial period, go in and ask what they can do for you. Perhaps they will let you try a few free classes. It is like test-driving a car, you do not have to buy one you are not happy with it.

Is your family a little hesitant about going to a gym? There are several other ways you and your family can experience a fit lifestyle. Depending on the climate where you live, you can go skiing, sledding, skating, hiking, biking, swimming, and even bowling. If you have a video game system, there are several videos geared for getting up off the couch and moving and yes even sweating.

Not only is physical fitness important for a fit lifestyle, a healthy diet is as well. Great abs are created in the kitchen, not the gym. Start the New Year by clearing out the refrigerator and cabinets of unhealthy food. Have a family night discussing what types of healthy foods everyone likes and come up with different menu options. Try adding new foods you have never tried before. Last year was the first time I tried spaghetti squash and I am hooked on it. Getting the entire family involved with meal planning, shopping, and meal prep will provide a life-long healthy lifestyle.

A fit and healthy lifestyle will help provide lower life insurance premium rates. Your cholesterol, sugar, blood pressure, and weight can significantly improve with a healthy life style. Low life insurance rates combined with a healthy lifestyle is a winning combination!
