Why you and your Children should step away from the TV and exercise instead!

Ok, we are all guilty of watching the x-factor on a Saturday night (can you believe it was on for 2 1/2 hours on Saturday??!!) but did you know that every hour we spend watching TV shortens our lifespan by 21.8 minutes!!! 

Researchers at the University of Queensland say that all that sitting down increases your risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes – not good!

I’m not saying don’t watch TV because I know your kids would hate me but why don’t you make TV watching a bit more active by playing TV bingo?

Whatever the show, choose words that will prompt you to get up of the coach. Watching X-factor? Every time you hear ‘Fun’ or ‘sing’ or ‘rubbish’ get on your feet and do a jump.

Or why not do five sit ups every time someone looks at the floor after they have been told by Gary Barlow that they were rubbish?

Who said watching TV couldn’t be fun as well as active?
