Be Physically Active for Your Body and Your Brain

Filed under: Brain — admin @ 12:42 am

I read this from Time magazine on 1/16/2012, “The Reason for Recess. Children who are more physically active may do better in school,” as if I had not known this for years. Still, I post this one because I don’t see enough exercise in high school students.

When First Lady Michelle Obama advocated “Let’s move,” I think her main intention was attacking childhood obesity. This article reviews numerous research of exercise and our brain.

Data support the findings that “linked exercise with greater productivity and fewer sick days among adults.” According to Center for Disease Control, students need one hour of physical activity everyday to remain healthy.

The short message is — be physically active not just for your body but also for your brain, no matter what age group you are in.
