Physical Exercise Could Improve Academic Performance of Children

While a lot has been said about physical wellbeing of school going children, it has largely been found that there could be significant benefit to those children in their academic performance if they are physically active. A team of from VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam has managed to find a potential link between exercise and academic performance.

This was made possible after they studied 14 studies involving more than 12,000 children. The team is told to have probed 12 studies conducted in the United States, one in Canada and one in South Africa.

There has been so much said about the same and that is what has made the team go for this study. It has been known that physical workout could pump up blood and oxygen to the brain and that's what is being seen as a positive cue for extended research.

There is no doubt that stress mounted due to competition has made the situation of children more worrying and that is what is pushing their overall development to back burner. There is a need to make parents aware about the same so that children are given their desired level of freedom for a healthy life.

It has been found that those who indulge in regular exercise or any regular outdoor activities are more likely to have a sharp mind. It has become more or less essential to ensure that the kids are being given a chance to enjoy their life in the best possible manner.

"Children who learn to participate in sport also learn to obey rules. This may mean they are more disciplined and able to concentrate better during lessons", said Dr. Amika Singh, who along with her team has worked on the study. The team is of the view that there is need of extended research on the same so that some conclusive assertions could be made about the same.
