There is a lot of pressure on the need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to do regular exercise. For many people, it can be a real struggle to fit this exercise in, especially around working and looking after the kids. Of course, it is even more important that children exercise regularly, not just because it will help their development, but simply because they have so much excess energy to burn. We all know that having happy, healthy children makes any parent’s life easier and here at The Beach intu Lakeside, we try to promote that. It is the perfect place for your children run around in a safe, fun environment, surrounded by other kids.
Located by the intu Lakeside Shopping Centre on West Thurrock Way in Grays, The Beach has plenty of space for children to let off some steam, in the swimming pools, or on the vast expanse of soft, golden sand. The Beach is a brilliant way for children to enjoy an active lifestyle and we believe that it gives parents a nice, affordable solution to keeping their kids entertained and happy.
In the modern world we live in, technology can be both a blessing and a curse, especially when it comes to childcare. It is all too easy to let children play on the iPad or watch videos on YouTube to keep them quiet and content, but too much screen time can be bad for their health. The Beach intu Lakeside provides a welcome distraction from technology as it is an outdoor festival of summertime that encourages children to exercise and gives them lots of exposure to the sunshine and fresh air.
What is even more compelling is that regular exercise has a positive effect on mental well-being, as well as your physical development. Starting early with an active lifestyle as a child can develop regular exercising habits that are much harder to break in later life. For children, an afternoon at The Beach intu Lakeside is a brilliant way to learn team-building skills and for social bonds to grow, as well as gaining sunshine exposure and lots of vitamin D.
So if you’re trying to find a way to promote an active lifestyle for your kids and want to get them out of the house, then come on down to The Beach intu Lakeside this summer for a day they won’t forget. We look forward to seeing you!
