Your family depends on you to keep them safe, healthy and well.
Here are five simple changes you can make to your lifestyle that will help you achieve these goals. If you’re not doing these five things to protect your family, then you need to start implementing these strategies now to protect your family and home.
Develop an attitude of health
Nobody wants to be told what to eat or how to eat it, but there is a better way to motivate your family. Rather than telling them how to eat, give them incentives to eat better.
Explain that protein found in milk, meat, poultry and soy products actually can help them think better. Then make it a game to see who eats the healthiest in the family.
Use whole house water filtration
It may sound like a luxury, but a whole house water filtration system can save you money in the long run while improving your family’s health. Installing a system reduces deposits in your pipes and increases the quality of your water.
While municipal water sources are generally safe, a lot can happen between the water treatment plant and your home. Rusty pipes, loose fittings and other issues can allow chemicals to leach into your water system.
Protecting your home
A security system does more than protect your family from outsiders. A high-quality home security system can provide you with a way to receive an alert if your children enter a room they shouldn’t, or if a window is open that could potentially create a safety hazard for your family.
If you own guns, a wine collection, or exercise equipment that young children should not have access to, you can use the security system to alert you if someone enters the area without permission.

Get your family active
There are many opportunities to stay active with your family. Get out and participate in a run or walk that assists charitable causes. Companies like the United Way and local charity groups often sponsor these events to make them a safe and enjoyable day out with your family.
Make and keep regular medical appointments
Too many adults wait to see a doctor until something goes wrong. Help your children get used to seeing a doctor on a regular basis. Keep regular dental appointments and get a yearly checkup for the entire family to help make the process of seeing the doctor a normal part of life.
Instill in your children the importance of health at an early age.
As life gets busier, it can be hard to take care of everything your family needs. If you find yourself falling behind, begin keeping a family schedule. Make your family’s wellness a priority, and you’ll find you have more energy to enjoy your time with them.
