A new school year is here and every family has a lot of things going on. Sometimes keeping your kids active once school starts back up slips to the bottom of the priority list. But keeping your child active after school has a ton of benefits physically, socially and mentally!
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 roller rink at Skate Moore after school is a great way for them to ramp up their exercise, make new friends and increase their energy for learning.
Benefits of Exercise for Your Childs Brain
There are now dozens of studies show that kids get smarter simply by staying active and getting regular exercise. Between 30 and 60 minutes of physical activity per day helps increase your child’s brain function in the following ways:
- 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 creates health benefits throughout their lives. Kids who suffer from childhood obesity are at a much higher risk for developing health issues like diabetes and heart disease as adults.
Keeping kids physically active can make a huge difference in behavior. A tired kid is a good kid, and at Skate Moore in Oklahoma City, we specialize in making exercise fun while your little ones wear themselves out!
