Parent Action for Healthy Kids Shares Four Tips for Relaxing on the Fourth of July

School is out and family schedules are starting to wind down.   Families need to wind down too, so take a deep breath and show your kids how to relax and recharge!  Let the Fourth of July be the holiday that kicks off the lazy, hazy days of summer!  Start off the holiday by sleeping in, enjoying a family breakfast, barbequing in the park and end the day gazing at the stars. 

The Fourth of July is about freedom and courage.  Do we have the courage to slow things down and show our kids that time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time?  Here are four tips to get you started:

  • Free yourself of all social media
  • Flip off the cell phone
  • Find things to be grateful for
  • Be free with your time and your love

This holiday is the perfect time to resolve to enjoy life more, and create a happier, healthier you.  Remember, life is what you make it, so make it a relaxing one.
