Beberapa kebiasaan buruk yang dilakukan di dalam keluarga Anda mungkin akan menyebabkan penyakit yang membahayakan.

Salah satunya adalah kebiasaan dalam menyajikan makanan tidak sehat yang bisa menyebabkan anak mengalami obesitas atau kelebihan berat badan.

Saat ini, tidak sedikit anak-anak di sekolah yang mengalami obesitas, sehingga anak tersebut sangat rawan terhadap serangan penyakit. Sekarang adalah saatnya untuk merubah kebiasaan-kebiasaan buruk seperti itu di dalam keluarga.

Jika Anda tidak mengetahui bagaimana cara membangun kebiasaan keluarga yang sehat, berikut 5 strategi kebiasaan yang harus dilakukan, seperti dilansir Health.

Kedekatan keluarga

Pertama kali yang harus dilakukan ketika membangun keluarga yang sehat adalah dengan cara membuat pilihan gaya hidup sehat itu sendiri secara bersama-sama. Tanamkan kebiasaan hidup sehat kepada semua anggota keluarga Anda mulai sekarang.

Makan tepat waktu
Untuk menjaga berat badan yang sehat Anda harus pintar mengatur pola makan keluarga. Sajikan makanan selalu tepat waktu. Jika anggota keluarga Anda lapar, hormon ghrelin yang berguna sebagai peningkat nafsu makan membutuhkan 30 menit untuk kembali normal setelah makan. Selain itu, hal ini bahkan bisa menyebabkan penyakit maag.

Mengganti dengan makanan sehat

Anda harus menyajikan makanan yang sehat untuk keluarga Anda. Jika Anda sering menyajikan jenis makanan instan seperti mie atau yang mengandung bahan pengawet lainnya, hentikan segera. Khusus untuk anak-anak, Anda bisa menyediakan makanan sehat seperti sayur-sayuran dan tanaman hijau lainnya.

Olahraga di rumah
Jika Anda melakukan olahraga di luar rumah, Anda secara otomatis akan membutuhkan waktu lebih dari 20 menit. Namun, jika Anda melakukan latihan di rumah, tentu tidak membutuhkan waktu selama itu, karena bisa melakukan olahraga ringan bersama keluarga, sehingga hubungan antar keluarga juga semakin dekat.

Menentukan Makanan di rumah

Keputusan besar tentang apa yang harus dimakan harus dilakukan oleh Anda. Jadi, Anda harus menjadi penentu, karena jika Anda membawa makanan ringan yang mungkin tidak sehat, anak-anak secara alami pasti akan memakannya. Jadi, pastikan anak-anak memakan makanan sehat ketika mereka ingin memakannya.

Media portrayals of families often mislead, either indicating that every family is problem-ridden and highly dysfunctional or that a healthy family is an idyllic myth. Neither portrayal is accurate, however. Through purposeful, committed investment, you and your family can enjoy rewarding, life-giving relationships with one another. In fact, a healthy family is not only possible, it is necessary for you, your spouse and your children to survive and to thrive in other areas of your lives.

Step 1

Create an environment of safety within your family and your home. In a safe environment, individual family members are respected and honored and differences are valued. For example, you and your spouse may have very different ideas of what a vacation should entail. Instead of fighting for your ideal holiday, honor one another by looking for ways to meet both of your needs during your trip. Gary Smalley, in “The DNA of Relationships,” explains that when you create a safe environment within a family, then relationships grow and flourish.

Step 2

Find ways to share life experiences together, such as by having a game night once a week or going on a camping trip every spring. In “Keys to Loving Relationships,” Smalley stresses that close families “share a commitment for spending quality time together,” scheduling regular family-oriented activities and events.

Step 3

Establish and respect healthy boundaries for your family as a whole and for each member of your family. Henry Cloud and John Townsend, in “Boundaries,” explain that boundaries help people to understand what they are and are not responsible for in the various aspects and relationships of their lives. For example, allowing children to experience the natural consequences of their behaviors can help them to understand that, while they are not responsible for the actions of others, they are responsible for their own choices. Healthy boundaries will help families to enjoy greater closeness and security.

Step 4

Seek to resolve conflict, such as disagreements over family nights or summer activities, in healthy ways and to find resolutions that take care of each member of your family. For example, if your family cannot agree on movie choices for family night, discuss possible creative ways to select movies that will work for everyone. This is a “no losers policy” where every family member has a voice in how to best resolve a conflict or how to best solve a problem faced by the family.

Step 5

Share praise and affirmation with each member of your family on a regular basis. Seek to be as specific as possible about anything and everything that you appreciate about one another. Take turns to celebrate each person, and maybe even add a family time to the calendar each month specifically for sharing praise with one another.

Step 6

Incorporate play into the family schedule as often as possible, embracing and even proactively seeking opportunities for the entire family to play and to have fun together. A midweek ball game, a Saturday morning hike, a visit to an area amusement park and a community service project all give families an opportunity to connect and to play together.
