What's your Question: Your statements indicate that you feel you have good memory, are a good listener, and oriented to the calendar very well. I do detect, however, a number of typographical errors. Is that normal for you or are you simply not proofing what you're writing. Would you like to pose a question based on your statements? If so, you may write to me at: www. Healthtap. Com/dr-drsaghafi

I was just wondering how can I motivate my children to exercise?

I was just wondering how can I motivate my children to exercise?

Lifestyle commitment: There are several tactics, all of which work sometimes, none of which work all the time. #1) limit "screen time", which means no more than one or two hours a day with anything with a screen (tv, computer, smart phone, video games.) #2) organized sports. #3) exercise with them. Walk, swim, run, shoot baskets, play catch, go to the park, ride bike. Whatever works in your family. Good luck.

Are there any exercises for obese children?

Are there any exercises for obese children?

Exercises: Yes, but you don't need to focus on any specific exercise. Just get them to be active, play a sport, ride a bike, etc. The other huge component is nutrition. You need to minimize the amount of sugar, carbs, fat, that they eat. Cut out the candy, soda, ice cream, fruit punch, fast food, etc. Keep this stuff out of the house, and it will make everyone healthy.

What is the best way to get your child to get exercise?

What is the best way to get your child to get exercise?

Set an example early: Before they enter school, children try to imitate their parents. So get a jump on this-literally-and show them how much fun fitness activites can be. When they enter school, they have more options for activities with other kids. So enroll them in team and individual sports and help them practice. When those tough teen years arrive, peer pressure can lead kids in multiple directions. Reward health!

Why are kids not doing enough exercise during the summers?

Why are kids not doing enough exercise during the summers?

Agree with Dr. Yoder: I would add, though, that many of our kids are not doing enough exercise during the other three seasons either! I tell my patients that they need some exercise daily, and that the only day they are allowed to not exercise at all is the day of their funeral (which, I add, I hope won't come for a hundred years or so).

Can you please list fun exercises to lose weight?

Can you please list fun exercises to lose weight?

Daily activities: Make your daily activities more difficult - take the stairs, park further away, bike/ walk to work/ store, sit on a swiss ball/ at your desk and stand up every time you answer the phone, or lunge/ hop/ jump from place to place in your house. Things like these may seem small and silly, but the increased calorie burn can add up over time. Don't forget a healthy diet!

How can you encourage your child to exercise more?

How can you encourage your child to exercise more?

Make it happen: Don't encourage: make it a part of life. Do you "make" your child go to school? Yes brush his/her teeth? Yes do you keep allow your child to jump off the roof? No. Exercise should be no different. Be a role model - you must exercise also. Then get a plan. Do it together or help them find an interest. Get help from doctor/school/friends. This is your child's health/life on the line.

Child overweight, doesn't want to exercise, what to do?

Child overweight, doesn't want to exercise, what to do?

Childhood obesity: A growing problem in our country is childhood obesity. The dietary education is slowly happening in schools, but there needs to be an emphasis on regular exercise as well. I would suggest finding an activity they think is fun...Dance, soccer, karate, and encouraging it. Also, make them turn off the electronics for an hour or so a day, and engage in activities. The video games and apps can wait.

Can you list some facial exercises for chin and cheeks?

Can you list some facial exercises for chin and cheeks?

Exercise?: Although many individuals do promote the use of facial exercises to achieve a younger fuller face, I do not understand the purpose of these. Unlike the rest of your body, facial muscles do not generally achieve greater fullness with exercise. In fact, as a plastic surgeon, our goal is to weaken muscles with botox, rather than to strengthen them.

How much exercise should a 5th grade child get each day?

How much exercise should a 5th grade child get each day?

One hour: National guidelines recommend that children get one hour of exercise a day. Organized games like soccer or informal activities on a playground are good. So is biking. Encourage your kids to get outside and be active. Even better, be active with them. Then everyone benefits.

I was just wondering how can yoga exercise benefit children?

I was just wondering how can yoga exercise benefit children?

Yoga ; kids: Yoga can start kids early in improving balance, strength, and flexibility. They can learn to calm their stress in a hurry-up world. Kids naturally love to move, and love to play. It's helpful for them to have a non-competitive way to move their bodies, especially for kids who are shy or who feel physically awkward. There are parent-child yoga classes which increase parent-child bonding too.
