Chances are you made some kind of New Year’s resolution to live a healthier life. But why stop there?  Why not make it a goal for the entire family!  Our team at AFC Urgent Care of Ooltewah wants you to consider not only making health a priority for yourself but for your entire family!

How Much Exercise Should My Family Be Getting?

The amount of exercise you need each day varies by age. Children and teens should get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day, while adults should get at least 30 minutes on most days of the week.

The key to staying motivated to work out is to find something fun to do as a family. Whether it is going outside and playing a game of soccer or taking a walk or bike ride after dinner, it is important to motivate one another to get out and exercise for better, overall health.  Luckily, the Ooltewah community has an abundance of parks, trails, and greenways!  Head out to Wolftever Greenway or Enterprise South Nature Park for a fun day out with the family!

Exercise Ideas for a Family

  • Have a dance party.
  • Take a family hike or nature walk.
  • Toss around a ball.
  • Play an outdoor game.
  • Jump rope together.
  • Plant a small garden.

How Can My Family Eat Better?

Everyone’s days are usually jam-packed before they even begin, especially during the school year. The drive-thru looks extremely appealing when you have worked all day and your children had sports or extracurricular activities after school.

However, convenience is not the best for your health…or your wallet! Therefore, make it a point to add more fresh fruits and vegetables into most meals, especially adding in more leafy greens!

Good Greens to Eat

  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Green beans
  • Kale

Are you looking to establish healthier habits as a family? Our team at AFC Urgent Care of Ooltewah recommends starting with getting an annual wellness exam.

    With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
