Keeping your child active as they grow is critical for their health and development. Just like adults, children enjoy a boost in activity to increase blood flow and overall engagement and productivity when they’re encouraged to move throughout the day.
Wondering why this matters, and how to encourage healthy movement in your own kids? Luckily, here at Gaiam, we have a few benefits and product suggestions to will keep your little ones moving all day!
Kids are always growing and developing, so it’s important that they are able to move their bodies with active sitting/standing. This will help your child in a number of ways – including bone and muscle development, overall strength and stability, quality of sleep and mental health, and much more. Active sitting and standing also helps maintain proper blood sugar levels and lets your child burn more calories throughout the day, keeping them healthy.
Another benefit of keeping kids active through regular exercise and active sitting and standing is that you can build habits that will stick with your little one for years to come. If they learn about the importance of exercise and movement at a young age, they are more likely to maintain an active lifestyle as they grow, mature, and begin living on their own in adulthood.
Kids’ active seating that lets your child stand, lean, or perform some other kind of movement while they stay stationary is a great way to encourage an active lifestyle.
