Go For Your Life...
Today in our Herald Sun Newspaper there was a lift out magazine that contained something I was really excited about. As a family we do alot of physical activity, from walking, riding, scooter-ing and skipping to and from school....to swimming, bush walking and flying fox riding at the park.
There is a Victorian Government Initiative Campaign to get all families on the move, and healthier and fitter and well, the Newspaper is helping spread the word with this little Lift out and a guide to things you can do in a 30 day period to get the kids and mums and dads up and moving. I know we already do a fair bit of these activities but I plan on filling out our own 30 day challenge of activity and see how we fare.
It does remind me of a campaign from the 1970's called "Life. Be In It". The above 30 second clip reflects some of what that campaign was about. It sure sticks in your head when you grew up with those ads on telly.
I sort of feel like a cheat because I know we will be really active over this coming holidays.... as you will read later on, we are going to Halls Gap again for our vacation..and I cannot wait! Bike riding, rock climbing and bush walking amongst many things we can do.
So, anyone wanting to increase their daily activity out there? GO FOR YOUR LIFE!!!
