Did you know that there are health benefits to Halloween? I know what you’re thinking, yea right! There’s no way that Halloween provides health benefits. But REALLY, it does! Halloween is not typically known for health promoting aspects, but if you look hard enough, you will find them. Here are the tricks and treats to a healthy Halloween:
1. Exercise: walk the streets with your kids, grandchildren, neighbor’s kids, or anyone. Also, for more of an in-depth workout, pile the kids into a wagon and pull them. When the kids want to go for the second lap around the block, agree it to it. You’ll burn even more calories, and having at least one child who insists on being carried counts as strength training.
2. Social Interaction Promotes Brain Health: Halloween is a great time to give your brain a gift and interact with new people. According to, Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, their research shows that neighborhoods with a close-knit community can create feelings of goodwill and positive relationships, which reduce stress and anxiety.
3. Practice Self-Control: This is where you have an opportunity to practice all of those healthy habits you’ve learned this year. It’s the time to give that will power muscle a workout and either limit or don’t eat the candy!
Look for the opportunities to do things that promote activity, positive social interaction, and balanced eating this holiday. Stay healthy and eat healthy! Save on health and life insurance premiums!
