A new school year is right around the corner and there are a lot of things going on for both children and parents. Sometimes keeping your kids active once school starts back up can slip to the back of the priority list, but keeping your child active after school can have amazing effects on their body and brain.
We all know that exercise is great for keeping your body healthy, but did you know that regular physical activity can help increase brain function in children, too? It’s true! And bringing your kids to the Fun-E Farm on weekends and evenings after school can be a great way for them to ramp up their exercise and stay fit mentally as well as physically.
Benefits of Exercise for Your Childs Brain
There are now dozens of studies show that kids can get smarter simply by staying active and getting regular exercise. Between 30 and 60 minutes of physical activity a day help your brain function better by:
- Increasing blood flow to the brain
- Helping new neurons grow
- Speeding up the brain’s metabolism
- Increasing Oxygen levels in the brain
Fight Childhood Obesity
Regular after-school exercise can help your kids keep a healthy weight which will create health benefits far into the future. Kids who suffer from childhood obesity are at a much higher risk for developing health issues as adults like diabetes, heart disease and more.
Making sure your kid burns off the excess physical energy they build up sitting in class all day can make a huge difference in behavior. A tired kid is a good kid and at the Fun-E Farm, we specialize in making exercise fun while your little ones tire themselves out!
