We hear a lot these days about kids staying active, but why should they and how does it help them?


Childhood obesity has quadrupled since the 1960s with children spending over 7½ hours a day on all screen media combined (TV, videos, and DVDs, computer and video games) and as they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, some children feeling that they aren't good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families. Safety concerns and living in areas with lots of buildings means perhaps children can't play in their neighbourhood either but children need activities that build:

Dubai's summer is here bringing it with the high humidity and intense heat. This coupled with dust and pollution can wreak havoc with our hair. Dr. Manoj Kumar, Medical Director at Bloom Aesthetic and Laser Clinic shares the following tips to ensure healthy hair during the hot summer months.

 


1. Time for a shower – Every night before going to bed, most people would wash away the grime and dirt on their faces. However, not many realize your hair is also exposed to the same pollution and will be just as dirty. Washing your everyday will cause it to dry out so make sure to do it every other day to avoid dirt buildup.

It's that time of the year when teachers bid farewell to their students, hoping that children don't forget everything that they have learned during the past school year. It's also that time of the year when parents take on the challenge of keeping their children both physically busy and mentally active during the holidays. Ironically, a lot of parents resort to technology to keep their children out of trouble; however are unknowingly feeding to an unhealthy addiction that can lead to behavioral problems.

 


School holidays provide a break from school work and a chance to refresh for the new academic year. It is also the perfect opportunity to develop a "summer plan" for the whole family to follow. As parents, it is important to find the right balance between entertainment and creative engagement. Keeping kids engaged both physically and mentally during the summer holidays can improve their performance ahead of the next academic year. Being active strengthens their muscles and bones and ensures that their bodies are capable of running day-to-day activities. It is also important to remember that children's activity levels in their early stages can have an effect on them for the rest of their lives.  Several studies have indicated that physically active children have better mental health, with higher self-esteem and levels of alertness than inactive children.
