Get SMART and track your activity NC)—Often the first thing we do when we decide to become more fit is to set a goal – and frequently that’s a weight loss objective, like wanting to lose five pounds next month. But Dr. Shannon Bredin, a behavior specialist and assistant professor in the University of British Columbia’s School of Kinesiology, says using the scale to measure progress of a fitness regime can be a mistake. Instead, here are 5 “SMART” steps to setting yourself up for success: Specific: What are you going to do? Why is this important to you? How are you going to do it? Measurable: Tracking your activity and progress can be key to motivation. But instead of simply stepping on the scale, Dr. Bredin advises that you get more accurate information from your level of physical activity, like the number of steps taken in a day. There are plenty of products that can help you measure and track your activity. For example, one called Tractivity is an affordable solution that includes a digital sensor that clips to your shoe. It calculates your steps, distance travelled, time active and calories burned. Your progress is illustrated on your personal secure account. Take a look at www.tractivityonline.com to see how it works. Attainable: “You don’t want your goals to be too easy so that there’s no satisfaction in fulfilling them,” says Dr. Bredin. “But you also can’t make them so difficult that they frustrate you. The secret to setting goals is to strike a balance between achievability and creating a real challenge for yourself.” Realistic: For example, if your goal is 10,000 steps per day, check with your doctor that you’re currently healthy enough to strive for that goal, and identify times in your day that can be dedicated to walk breaks. Timely: Set a target date to reach your daily goal. If you don’t commit to a timeframe, there’s no urgency and you may be prone to procrastinate.

How to help kids find the right extracurricular activity Today’s kids are busier than ever before. While it can be fun and beneficial for kids to participate in extracurricular activities, finding the right fit isn’t as easy as it sounds. When helping kids find an extracurricular activityx, it’s best to consider a host of factors. Especially keep in mind that not all kids are the same with respect to interests. And what was enjoyed by their parents won’t necessarily be enjoyed by them. Getting Started The best place to start is to speak to kids about their interests. Just because Dad loved playing football doesn’t mean Junior is destined to be a gridiron great. Kids have their own interests, and those interests can be cultivated with the right extracurricular activity. For example, a creative child might enjoy an after-school art class a couple of times per week. Parents should also consider extracurriculars that can help kids grow as people. For instance, a child who’s shy in public but loves hamming it up at home might embrace an after-school theater program. Get the 411 Parents should inquire about program costs. Though many programs are upfront about fees, some have hidden fees that can add up. Such fees can be for uniforms, equipment, class trips, etc. Extra fees don’t have to exclude a program from consideration, but it’s better to know about them in advance than have them come as a surprise.

rules-based activities, including team sports, as kids at that age are more capable of understanding rules and handling losing than younger kids. As children get older and move on to middle school, look for activities that rein-

force learning and help develop a young person’s character, including their ability to interact with others. When looking for an extracurricular activity for kids, parents should consider a host of factors, including the child’s interests and age.

SKATING LESSONS SIGN UP TODAY! Fall Skating Lessons

Consider a Child’s Grade Level A child’s age and grade level should also be considered when choosing an extracurricular activity. Consult teachers about finding an age-appropriate extracurricular activity. For example, less competitive activities that emphasize fun might be more appropriate for kids in kindergarten and the first grade. For second graders, activities not offered at school, like learning to play an instrument, can help cultivate a child’s interest in a noncompetitive environment. As kids reach third grade and beyond, consider more
