An Interview with Dr. Weisman

How do you get your family to eat well? Honestly, I can’t say that I ‘get’ my family to eat well. I offer choices and on the good days, they try something new and I call it a win. This persistent patience is starting to work (after 9 years) as I’ve started to see my youngest eat green peppers like apples and my oldest coming home from school telling me about the new foods he tried at lunch! #momwin

How do you get your family to exercise? I lead by example. As a past college athlete, I still love volleyball and other sports so I participate in local rec leagues. By demonstrating that I can do it, my children have been more apt to try new activities as well. Also living in rural Indiana, we spend much of our time in the woods or corn fields exploring or puddle jumping.

What do you do for yourself to stay well? Digital detox! Turning off the alerts on my phone, grabbing a great fantasy fiction novel or going for a hike in the woods are my go-tos. I’ve found less screentime absolutely improves my wellness.
