This year at Johnson Creek Elementary School we are starting our day off with a healthy start. Research shows that there are good reasons why we want students to start out with a refreshing exercise routine…
Morning Exercise Gives You an Early Energy Boost
Here at school, students need to ‘hit the books’ andgain new knowledge at a fast pace. Getting extra oxygen into the brain will help students have the energy to stay focussed and be involved in the activities.
Morning Exercise Clears up Your Day
How many days have you gone to work and felt unproductive because your mind is worrying about everything that has to be done when you get home? It’s common to be less productive when you have a lot on your mind; getting through the day becomes a chore. That’s why exercising in the morning can help you start your day off right. Not only does it give you a boost of energy to get through your work day, it helps relieve stress.
Morning Exercise Will Help You Eat Better
When you work out in the morning you’re setting yourself up to eat healthier the rest of the day.The morning exercise will motivate you to carry on with healthier habits the rest of the day.Through our physical education and health curriculum, we are teaching students about healthy habits. With our Healthy Start, we are modelling exercise and encouraging healthy eating.
Morning exercise can make a world of difference in your well being. Join your child in switching up your routine to start your day with exercise and healthy eating and see if you don’t begin to feel more productive and in a better mood.
