The best way to get the community healthy and fit is to get them
Keeping the general population fit and healthy is becoming increasingly
challenging by the day for various reasons including long hours at work,
unhealthy eating habits and children preferring video games and the internet to
Unisite suggests four ways to encourage community members to lead fit
and healthy lifestyles.
Encourage your local farmers
Encourage people to include healthy fruits and vegetables in their diet
and skip the temptation to pick up unhealthy frozen pizzas. Buying local
produce from farmers and markets makes the weekly shopping cheaper and healthier
too. Take the lead in organising regular farmers markets and encourage local
producers to share their knowledge about cooking simple recipes with seasonal
fruits and veggies.
Invest in park furniture
Give the community a reason to get outdoors and enjoy the view. Installing
high quality tables and chairs, barbecues, drinking fountains, and proper bins
will all combine to offer a great day out. Installing the right kind of park
furniture can make a big difference to barbecues with friends and family or simply
enjoying the sun during a lunch break. Parks equipped with well-designed furniture
that ensures people have comfortable options to sit, drink and relax will be
filled up in no time.
Offer plenty of information
Take the initiative to educate people about leading healthy and fit
lifestyles. For instance, knowing about the unhealthy consequences of junk food
and healthier alternatives can help people change their food habits for the
better. Set up a dedicated website to ensure the public has access to the
information they need to slowly improve their lifestyles. Flyers can be handed
out at specific events (such as farmers markets) and the public should also be
encouraged to share that knowledge with others they know.
Bike parking installations
Cycling is increasingly being adopted by people all over the globe as an
exercise method or as a mode of conveyance. Keeping the bike secure when parked
is a major concern for cyclists and often prevents them from taking their bikes
out when they know they can’t keep a watchful eye. Unisite recommends bike
parking installations made of strong materials such as steel and alloy to
assure bike riders that their bikes will be safe. This assurance will encourage
more members of the community to take up cycling as a mode of transportation.
