Raising Healthier Kids in 2024: Why Outdoor Play Matters

Raising Healthier Kids in 2024: Why Outdoor Play Matters

For most (if not all) parents, looking back on their favorite childhood memories brings about stories of playing outside. But nowadays, especially in our digitally and technologically driven society, it’s normal for our children to spend most of their time indoors. This poses a common dilemma for many parents: wanting their children to spend more time outside but also worrying about their safety. Yet, finding such spaces in the country is not easy, and all the more so finding a home that supports this thriving lifestyle. Fortunately, Rockwell in Lipa recognizes this challenge, and provides a prime example of a community that addresses both of these concerns. 

A Home With Nature

Rockwell in Lipa offers a haven where you can seamlessly integrate these enriching outdoor experiences into your daily life – through Terreno South. The community boasts three hectares of open spaces and pocket parks, on top of well-planned amenities for all the residents to enjoy. So, Terreno South thoughtfully combines modern comforts with expansive green spaces, creating an ideal environment for your children to grow and thrive.  

Rediscovering the Joys of Outdoor Play

In today’s digital age, it’s more important than ever for you to encourage your children to engage in outdoor play, not simply as a pastime activity, but as a fundamental aspect of their development. ⁤⁤Nature immersion provides essential growth and nurtures well-rounded, healthy children. ⁤⁤According to the Child Mind Institute, studies reveal that children who spend time outdoors experience significant physical health benefits, including improved motor skills, better cardiovascular health, and a stronger immune system. 

Improved Motor Skills

Playing outside is the perfect environment for your children to naturally develop their motor skills. When they do activities like running, climbing, and throwing, they enhance their coordination, agility, and balance. In the wide open spaces of Rockwell in Lipa, children have ample room to explore and grow – providing them an ideal setting for essential childhood experiences.

Strengthened Cardiovascular Health 

Immersing in nature and engaging in outdoor activities encourages movement and allows your children to burn more calories, helping them maintain a healthy weight and reducing the risk of heart disease. This creates a positive impact on their overall cardiovascular health. The various amenities in Rockwell in Lipa make it easy for children to stay active and healthy.

Reinforced Immune System

When your children run around, climb monkey bars, or dig in the dirt, they naturally strengthen their bodies’ ability to fight off germs. Exposure to the sun also helps their bodies produce vitamin D, which promotes a more relaxed state and helps their immune systems function better. Rockwell in Lipa ensures that kids can engage with nature safely, making them more resilient and less likely to catch common illnesses as they grow.

Getting Started

Achieving this lifestyle doesn’t have to be so complicated as there are many ways to make outdoor activities fun and part of your family’s daily life. In Terreno South, you can enjoy a family picnic on the Great Lawn, or take a refreshing dip together in the Central Amenity area, where family, kiddie, and lap pools are conveniently located right by each other. You can also encourage your kids to be active in sports at the community’s Sports Park, with many seating areas for you to watch and cheer them on. With over two hectares of leisure spaces in Rockwell in Lipa, you and your children will always find something exciting to do outside.
