You thought you could never love anyone more than your children. Then you held your grandchild and it was new love all over again. As you hold them, you think about them and your future together. Watching them growing, maturing, laughing and loving them. Now that the summer is here, it’s time to think about what you can do with your grandkids.
As you live the wonderful process of loving your grandchildren what kind of activities do you see yourself doing with them?
Maybe you think about sitting on a warm sandy beach with them and building sand castles together.
How about roller skating hand in hand to their favorite tunes?
If you have grandkid that plays sports, maybe you’ll be sitting on the bleachers, cheering them on when they’re playing baseball or football.
So, think about how your life should look so you can spend your days enjoying your grandchildren.
What kinds of things would you like to do with your grandchildren?
What sort of impact do you want to have on their lives?
How do you open the door to bonding with them?
What are the things you enjoy doing that you’d like to teach and pass on to them?
How do you love them so they are so excited to see you they run into your arms and give you a big hug?

I want you to take a minute and think about your health goals.
Maybe you don’t want to worry about how you look on the beach.
If you want to roller skate with them or ride a bike, your legs need to be in good shape.
Or maybe you want to throw a baseball or football with them.
Possibly, you just feel tired all of the time and need more energy so you can feel good when you are with them.
Write down your goals so you have something to shoot for.
Failing to take care of your physical body begins to affect your mental health. When your body reacts to neglect, it responds with tiredness and irritation. All too often depression moves in. It becomes a vicious cycle. Your body gets tired, so doing activities you would enjoy with them becomes more and more difficult. It isn’t long and you’re spending your life in the recliner watching television.
