Post-lunch classes are a dreadful affair as we are in a half-awake state mostly. The teacher’s voice is like the lullaby song making us drift off to sleep despite being it our most-liked subject. A young child is like a bottle of energy with a cork over it. Open it and the energy is dispensed throughout but have it closed and you reap no benefits. It’s until the age of five that a kid’s brain develops more than any other time in life and development that happens during this period has a greater impact on the child’s learning skills later in life. During those later years do you know what else helps to boost productivity and enhance test results? Its none other than exercise.
Exercising your Right to Exercise
Exercising is every one’s cup of tea believe me or not. This statement might seem ridiculous but when you look into it from a wider perspective, I am sure all of you are going to vouch for it. But it also depends on what you consider as exercising. If shaking your legs at the Zumba club or running on the treadmill is the only exercise you are aware of, then I am sorry. Exercising is basically anything that helps you move around, break a sweat or two and improves your energy levels. For kids it might be jumping on the bed, for teens it might be playing with a ball and for adults it might be walking or jogging. Exhaustive forms of exercise are taken up by those who have a definite target/goal in their mind such as weight loss or muscle buildup. Exercising is integral for overall physical and mental wellness (Yes, mind and body wellness though exercise is achievable and for more details on this please visit the website www.firsteatright.com) and schools nowadays insist on each of its student participating in some sporting activity for the benefit of the body. But what about the perks of exercising in between two different periods?
Our teachers don’t support us in petty chats that happen in between class sessions or even between two periods. So, how are they going to respond when they find you shaking your hips, rotating your necks or jumping on your feet before a test or an examination? Maybe they would become hysteric and order you to get out of the class? But maybe after reading this article your teacher is going to give you a thumbs up sign on such activities as the latest research tells that a student gives his/her best during tests or examinations when he/she exercises at his/her own pace rather than undergoing an ordeal of exhaustive exercises.
The Test that’s Going to Change your Approach Towards Tests
The study involved more than 11,000 school students on whom the research was conducted. We have heard of imparting simple physical activities in between classes to improve a child’s concentration and learning abilities but there are no conclusive evidences supporting them and also the kind of exercises that go well with these children. So, these students were asked to answer questions on how happy and awake they were before they took up some attention and memory task on the computer. All the children took the tasks twice-before and after participating in three different outdoor activities that were of different intensities:
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
