It isn’t always easy getting kids to understand the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. The most important things in a kids life most likely has very little to do with health and wellness. Some kids between the ages of 11 and 17 are all about having fun and living life to what they believe is its fullest. This may mean video games, eating junk food, watching television late into the night and not getting a proper rest. Caring or being concerned about their appearance or immediate health is not always on the forefront of their minds. As an early intervention, parents may want to consider Rites of Passage NW Wilderness Therapy obesity health and wellness camp for kids in Seattle.
An alternative to a traditional fat camp, at Rites of Passage we teach the benefits of a healthy lifestyle rather than concentrate on the loss of weight. With the knowledge of not just watching how much is eaten but choosing what is eaten is of the utmost importance. Providing options to poor choices such as knowing how to select and prepare healthy foods, a person will feel more comfortable making change.
Providing options to current activities such as hiking, wilderness treks and adventures will teach our students a great deal about themselves, their strengths and their abilities. They will learn new skills which will enable them to physically and emotionally continue to overcome the many challenges and temptations they will face in every day life.
As parents, we can continue to support our kids at home by learning from them and making the lifestyle changes necessary to ensure health and wellness becomes a family affair.
