Children who are more physically active are more likely to earn better grades in school. Exercise can improve attention span and behavior in the classroom thus leading to higher academic achievement. Engaging in 60 minutes of physical activity a day also enhances mood and leads to a positive attitude. Encourage your child to participate in physical activity at recess and on the school playground through games such as kickball, basketball, and tag. Take a family walk or bike ride after dinner to help your child focus better on homework. Instilling healthy habits in your child will enhance their overall wellbeing.
