- For kids (6 through 17 years): 60 minutes or more physical activity daily. A combination of aerobic exercises that increase heart rate, such as walking or running, and strengthening exercises that keep muscles and bones strong, such as climbing playground equipment or jumping rope, is recommended.
- The 60-minute goal does not have to be achieved in a single session – smaller bouts of physical activity count towards the daily total.
- Keeping active does more than just help you stay fit It can also give your brain a healthy boost! It's true – engaging in physical activities regularly can enhance brain function, making learning new things easier and more enjoyable. This wonderful connection is important for students of all ages, helping them to excel not only in physical activities but in their studies as well. For families, this means that encouraging playtime, be it a game of tag in the backyard, a bike ride in the park, or a fun dance session in the living room, can be a great way to support your child's overall development. Remember, when we keep our bodies moving, we're also keeping our brains in tip-top shape, ready to absorb new information and tackle challenges with a smile. So let's make a pact to stay active and promote healthy, happy brains in our students!
