PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Many young parents are frustrated because they talk about how difficult it is to exercise when there are all of the added responsibilities of raising kids. But, sometimes you have to look at the obvious to find an answer.

In this case, why not include the kids in your exercise or exercise when you are with your kids. If your kids are getting swimming lessons, see if you can swim while the lessons are occurring. Or, if you feel you want to go for a walk, make it a family walk, play basketball with the kids, golf or whatever you can do together.

You won’t just get exercise. You will have great family time as well.
