How has the past week been?

It’s incredibly hot and children need to resort to more indoor time, especially the afternoons. For some, the holidays have started and for others, it is just a matter of a few more days. What plans have you carved up for the upcoming summer holidays?!

But as much as it is important to take rest indoors, choose an activity window, suitable to the weather in your city to have some fun outdoors!

Participating in sports and other physical activities is a great way to improve your overall well-being. Not only does it help you maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases, but it also boosts your confidence, improves your mood, and helps you develop important social skills.

Plus, athletics can be a ton of fun! Whether you’re running around on the soccer field, shooting hoops on the basketball court, or doing cartwheels in gymnastics class, there’s something for everyone.

And the best part? You don’t have to be a superstar athlete to reap the benefits of an active lifestyle. Even just getting outside and playing with friends or taking a walk around the block can make a big difference.

This week, celebrating World Athletics Day, we have put together a small but super powerful book list that inspires your couch potatoes and bookworms to finish what they read and step out and have some real fun in the sun!
