Get active and have a blast: the benefits of active fun






Benefits of Active Fun at Trampoline

Exercise should be an important part of everyone’s day, no matter if you’re 4 or 40. But, it can be hard to get motivated, especially after a long day at school or work. 

The key is finding the right motivation. So, while getting yourself off the couch or encouraging your kids to start moving can feel impossible, it doesn’t have to be. If you can make exercising fun, it stops feeling like a chore and instead becomes something the whole family look forward to. 

Let’s explore all the benefits of active fun.

3 advantages of being active

We’ve all heard that exercise is good for us, but sometimes we need a little reminder. At Flip Out, we believe that consistent participation in physical activity can give you and your family the tools you need to live better. Here are the benefits you can experience.

1. Strengthens bones and builds muscle

When your bones and muscles are repeatedly worked, they adapt by becoming stronger and denser. This includes the muscles around your heart! So, if you spend even twice a week bouncing on a trampoline or climbing a rock wall, your body will get stronger and fitter over time. You can bring this new strength to other areas of life, like team sports, playing games with your loved ones or even just carrying more groceries in from the car!

2. Supports mental health

When you get active, your body releases endorphins. These are your feel-good chemicals, so the more often you exercise, the happier you’ll feel!

3. Helps you feel more energised!

Did you know exercise can actually help with sleep? When you regularly engage in physical activity, it can improve your sleep quality. That means that engaging in fitness with the kids can help your entire family wake up feeling less grouchy, more refreshed and ready to take on the day!

3 fundamentals of fun

Now that we’ve covered the benefits of exercising, it’s time for the best bit of active fun – having a blast! Discover all of the benefits you and your kids could experience.

1. Cultivate creativity

When you’re enjoying yourself, your brain is relaxed and flooded with positive emotions. These are great conditions for creative thought! Plus, being in a playful state can free minds from stress and open the door for more unstructured thinking.

2. Manage your mood

Like exercise, enjoying yourself and doing new things outside of your comfort zone are great for your mental health. By regularly engaging in fun activities, you can reduce stress while boosting self-esteem and confidence. The more often this happens, the easier it is to maintain this state of mind and the more likely you are to have fulfilled and fearless kids.

3. Get motivated!

Always focusing on work or homework deadlines or constantly stressing about your responsibilities is a fast track to burnout. This makes it even harder to get anything done. When you let loose and take the pressure off it can give your brain time to recuperate. Then, you’ll be remotivated and re-engaged when it’s time to focus.
