Read more about this fun event in this press release:

Keeping fit and healthy starts in the home. Kids need physical activity to build strength, coordination, and confidence and it is the parent’s responsibility to lay the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle. How can you do this, you ask? The answer is simple – engage in physical activities with them and make it a daily habit.

For kids, fitness means playing and being physically active. Once they enter nursery until they get to big school, exercise comes in the form of playing tag with friends, P.E. classes, and attending organized sports such as basketball or swimming. However, parents can no longer rely on physical education in schools to provide enough physical activity for kids. They need to play a more active role and make fitness a family routine.

This March, jumpstart the summer with Mom and Me: Fun To Be Fit, a series of health and fitness activities that both moms and kids will enjoy.

On March 22, all roads lead to White Space Mind and Body Wellness for an interactive yoga class for moms and kids

Yoga for all ages have become popular as this activity improves the three elements of fitness – endurance, strength, and flexibility. Moms and kids, and even dads too, can sweat it out in the mat with an interactive yoga class from Yoga+ on March 1 (12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.) and White Space Mind and Body Wellness Studio on March 15 (12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.).

Mark your calendars for a yoga class with the little ones on March 1 at Yoga+.

While yoga entails focus and flexibility, aerobic dancing involves heart-pumping movements and is a great way to improve coordination and memory. Make your way to Slimmers World on Mach 8 (9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.) in their Megamall branch and March 22 (9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.) in Trafalgar Makati branch for a fun and easy dance work out. Moms will also enjoy a signature Body Fat Analysis and Figure Consultation, Nutritional Counseling, Diamond Peel and a Slimming Treatment. Dancing to upbeat tunes, prepare to sweat it out. You’ll surely find yourself doing the routine even until you get home.

Swimming is one of the best workouts you can give your body as it activates almost all of your muscle groups at the same time. Since you’re floating in water, there’s less pressure on your joints and bones, and it almost seems like you’re not really exercising. Rounding up the Mom and Me Fun To Be Fit series is a swimming class with Coach Herman Brinas as hosted by The Legend Villas on March 29 (9:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.). Paddle, kick, and soak the sun, it’s a fun fitness activity for a Saturday afternoon.

Entrance Pass is only Php 350 good for mom/dad and one child per day. Participants get the chance to win in raffles and will receive a loot bag filled with treats.

Allow enough time for free play, regulate the use of gadgets, and keep a variety of games and sports equipment at home. You’ll be surprised how a jump rope can make a big difference. Show your kids that fitness is important by engaging in fitness activities with them. Mom and Me: Fun To Be Fit gets you and your little one active together. Get in shape and create moments that you and the kids will remember for a lifetime!

Mom and Me: Fun to Be Fit happens every Saturday of March – March 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. For details and event tickets, go to www.momandme.com.ph. Like and Follow Mom and Me at /mommyandmePH.

What Should You Know about Cholesterol?

Your body works through a number of systems that all work together to help you function. Many of these systems have a number of different components. One such component used in digestion, production of hormones, cell growth, and more, is cholesterol. The body creates this waxy substance in the liver, but it can also be found in some of the foods you consume, like red meats and dairy. It is important to keep your cholesterol at a healthy level. If you suspect your cholesterol levels are not at their best, it may be time to consult your health clinics in Downey, CA.

Cholesterol Types

The cholesterol in your body moves to and from your liver in your bloodstream via lipoproteins. Lipoproteins carry cholesterol in fat-filled packages encased in proteins. There are two main types of cholesterol found in your blood stream: low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL). HDL cholesterol is often referred to as good cholesterol, as it carries cholesterol in your bloodstream to the liver to be removed. LDL cholesterol, on the other hand, is known as bad cholesterol, as high levels of LDL can cause a buildup of cholesterol within the arteries of the body. When you have too much LDL in your bloodstream, the condition is fittingly called high cholesterol.

High Cholesterol

Generally, a person who has high cholesterol will not show any symptoms. The condition does, however, increase the individual’s risk for developing heart disease. Coronary heart disease occurs when the arteries in your heart develop deposits of plaque. Plaque is a waxy substance composed of cholesterol, fat, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. As the plaque amount increases, blood can begin to clot. If the clot grows large enough, it can potentially block blood flow through the arteries, causing a heart attack. Left long enough, the decreased blood flow to the heart can cause that portion of heart muscle to die, which can be fatal. Plaque can also buildup in other arteries within the body, which can potentially lead to stroke or other complications.

Your risk for developing high cholesterol can increase due to smoking, obesity, poor diet, lack of exercise, high blood pressure, diabetes, or having a family history of high cholesterol or heart disease. Your health clinics in Downey, CA, will assist you in lowering your cholesterol levels by providing information on lifestyle changes such as better diet and regular exercise, as well as possibly prescribing medications that may help control or lower cholesterol levels.
