Nurturing New Generation Kids: Engage Them into Physical Activities

Today’s generation is all about technology. Although continuous innovations make our lives easier, it has a negative side as well. Our kids are getting slower and lazier as they become addicted to computer-based games. Still, it is in our hands as parents to nurture our children. During their growing age, many things can matter a lot in polishing their personality. Proper guidance is all they need in every stage, whenever they need it. Adults should never try to be judgmental. Issues should be addressed properly without bias. Play with them like their friends. And if you can avoid it, protect them from computer games at an early age. You can use other toys to help them have fun in a more natural yet classic way.

To help them enjoy themselves with other friends, you can set up a tumbling mat or a portable pool. Combine it up with small slides and believe me, outdoor water toys can help them enjoy a great deal. Technology has brought many changes, but too much ease is also leading this generation towards unhealthy choices. It is time to reshape the generation by engaging them in healthy activities.

Now that I mention tumble mat. There’s a tumble mat for sale that is a great addition to your sporting equipment at home. This one is cheaper, and you can do many things with it while enjoying the fresh air and sunlight in your backyard.

If you have not seen a p3 air tumble mat yet, you will be amazed at how flexible they look in terms of use. Both adults and kids will enjoy them. If you are a health buff, you can have yoga and morning stretches on the mat. Kids and kids at heart will enjoy playing, jumping, and bouncing with all their heart’s desire.

Give forward by bringing back

I think I have found a solution to my problem of disposing old clothes and old school uniforms that have been bugging me for a long time.

My son gave me this pamphlet from a popular shopping retail company. The pamphlet said the store accepts old clothes in whatever form they may be. The goal is to:

REWEAR (clothes that can be worn again);

REUSE (textiles that are no longer suitable to wear are converted into other products, such as cleaning cloths);

RECYCLE (textiles that can’t be reused get a new chances as textile fibres, or are used to manufacture products such as damping and insulation materials fro the auto industry.

The company’s collecting initiatives aims to lessen the clothes and textiles that end up in landfills when 95 percent could be used again.

“The H&M garment collecting initiative has been created to decrease the waste and close the fashion loop. So if you’ve got something worn, torn, or hopelessly out of style – don’t throw it away or let it pile up in the back of our wardrobe. Bring back all your unwanted clothes and home textiles to your local H&M store.”

As a token for the effort in bringing your old clothes to the store, they will be giving voucher (for each bag you hand in) with a discount for your next purchase. Please visit their website hm.com/garment-collecting ico-spirit.com to know more about this initiative.

I’ll be sorting more old clothes this week to free additional space in the cabinet and do my share in reducing waste from old clothes and textiles.
