Here’s a fun fact: Did you know that laughing actually helps boost your immune system? It’s true. And it’s just another easy, fun way that you and the people in your life can stay strong and fit, like S.I.S™ Barbie Grace®.
Being active and living a healthy lifestyle isn’t as hard as some people think. All it takes is the right mindset, and the decision to make smart choices, like Grace, who loves cheer leading, basketball, and volleyball. Nothing's better than team sports to get the heart pumping. And they're much more fun than another Friday night at the mall!
Taking care of our bodies isn’t just about moving though; it’s also important to keep them fueled with the right kinds of foods.
Everyone knows that we are what we eat, but that doesn’t mean that we have to snack on granola and carrot sticks all day, every day. Mix it up!
Get creative in the kitchen with your family and have fun planning your meals, trying out new recipes, and making healthier versions of your favorite comfort foods. Create dishes that are well-balanced, with plenty of colorful fruits and veggies, lean protein, and heart-healthy grains. And remember, it's okay to leave room for sensible treats every now and then, like a little cup of ice cream.
Being healthy isn’t boring or bland. And it’s definitely not hard. Everything in moderation; one good decision at a time. That’s what Grace® represents. She's a reminder that when you give your body the food it needs and treat it right, you feel good; inside and out.
It’s the healthy start that every girl deserves to face the world, get out there and win big – at whatever she’s doing.
How will you choose to be fit today? A brisk walk around the block? Skipping the burger and fries for lunch and opting for a salad instead? Whatever you choose, do it with a loved one. Because, like happiness, being healthy is much more fun when it’s shared.
Stay healthy, stay strong, and keep laughing!
