What’s it all about?
It’s quite simple really, Well Family Warwickshire is all about trying to live a healthier life, for yourself & your family.
Well I say simple, but we’re all busy right? Spinning a multitude of plates, balancing (or trying to balance) work, family, children, friends, deadlines, tiredness, finances… the list is endless.
So here we are, celebrating all that is great & good about living in Warwickshire, on a mission to help you weave active & healthy choices into your busy everyday family lives.
Come & join us to seek & share ideas & inspiration on how to lead an active healthy lifestyle for the whole family! No judgements, no rights or wrongs, just inspiration & support for you to find your happy, your healthy. The important thing is that we move forward, we’re all about progress here not perfection!
So how are we going to do this?
We’re so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county.
We have nature in abundance on our doorstep.
We have thriving local independent businesses.
We have fabulous events for all the family.
Well Family Warwickshire is going to be celebrating & championing the fabulous community we live in & the opportunities it offers us to lead healthy lives.
The Great Outdoors
There’s nothing quite like getting out & about in the fresh air to blow away the cobwebs.
Being outdoors among nature is proven to improve physical & mental well-being. For children, being outdoors offers so many additional benefits, opportunities to learn about their environment, to experiment, to take risks, to explore, to run free, to get dirty…
So we’ll be exploring the best places to go in Warwickshire to do just that. Open spaces, parks, welly walks, nature trails, family festivals, family friendly days out… Weaving your recommended daily activity into fun memory making time with the family.
Be the Change
One of the best ways to encourage children to make healthy choices is to model it… Inspire them.
So if you’re looking to get back into fitness or want to try something different, we’ll be exploring the great local sports clubs, classes, facilities, organisations that are available locally. You never know, you might just find a new passion! And we’ll be doing the same for the children. Looking at local clubs & activities for kids to get involved in.
All that activity needs fueling, right?
We’re all about wholesome healthy family food. Nothing forbidden, no fads, just good honest nutritious food.
So, join us in sharing healthy recipes for the family, ideas on how to eat our 10 a day (yup it’s 10 now!), how to get wholesome food into fussy eaters… You know, the type of stuff we face everyday!
And if you don’t feel like cooking, we’ll be championing the best local eateries for healthy family food, there are so many in Warwickshire! Also farmers markets, food festivals, bakeries, butchers, farm shops, local producers… Supporting our local businesses & shopping local.
I’m sure you’ve heard of ‘mindfulness’. Definitely a journey for me. But we all need time for ourselves, time to recharge, to step out of the busy, time to ensure we have healthy minds as well as bodies (the kids do too!). But it’s often one of the things that gets pushed to the bottom of the list. So, we’ll try to change that. By offering ideas & asking for yours!
And that’s it! Please come & join us, get stuck in over the summer as we bust the myths, decipher the guidance & explore the many & varied ways we can weave active & healthy choices into busy everyday lives in Warwickshire. Remember, we’re all about #progressnotperfection.
