We hear about the benefits of movement and exercise for our own physical and mental health – but kids are just … NATURALLY active, right? Turns out the answer is a bit of a Yes, AND…. In this month’s Voices interview Sarah chats with former professional beach volleyball player, personal trainer, coach, and mom of three Larissa Maloney about the physical and mental benefits to keeping kids active throughout the day. We talk about the difference between traditional organized sports and a more holistic approach to active lifestyle, the brain and body benefits to moving our bodies, and how fun games and activities can get the whole family moving without feeling like an obligatory “workout.” Larissa also shares how growing up a competitive athlete and natural risk-taker led her to take big risks in sports, business and life. Enjoy!
