HEALTH TIP

Exercise Improves Children’s Working Memory

School children who participated in a 10 week aerobic exercise program (45 minutes per session, 3 times a week), experienced improvements in working memory when compared with children in a control group. The children in both groups were provided with homework assistance sessions during the same time frame. The results suggest that children would not only benefit physically from regular physical exercise, but academically as well.

The Lord has given us our bodies as living temples. We must do the maintenance to keep them healthy and to achieve wholeness of body, mind, and spirit. Children also need our encouragement to stay active and aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
