The Daily Mile At Home and Remote Learning
This year many districts are offering parents a choice between keeping their kids at home and sending them back to school in person. Remote learning delivers a curriculum to children by teachers through online learning programs. The transition to this new learning model can be stressful for both children and parents. In addition, the hours of workload will no doubt have children searching for a daily brain break. Luckily, The Daily Mile is a free, all-inclusive program that families can start at home today as part of their remote learning program. And the benefits are simply amazing…
- Improved focus, concentration and behavior
- Improved communication – This short exercise offers the opportunity for quality side-by-side conversations between parents and children. Click here for some conversation topic ideas!

Studies suggest that it takes about 21 days to form a habit. Join the movement, and try The Daily Mile for 21 days to experience the benefits for yourself and your family!
Here are some fun and simple trips to encourage your family to join the #DailyMileAtHome movement today!

- Start a running log: A small notebook works great. Include dates, times, and distances to track each family member’s progress!
- Offer an incentive: It doesn’t have to an expensive gift, but offer something special to your family. Maybe an extra 30 minutes of screen time, or letting them choose what’s for dinner.
- Play “I Spot”: Assign points to objects and use mental math to keep track for an extra brain booster during your daily run., (Ex: Butterfly = 5 points, Yellow Flower = 10 points, Shaped Cloud = 20 points)
