Sixty minutes- that's how much physical activity kids your age should be getting every single day. Sometimes it's hard to get in a full hour of exercise because it is easy to get caught up in activities such as watching TV, surfing the net, and playing video games. It's important to make the time for physical activity, as we know it has many benefits for your overall health, now and in the future.
There are 3 different elements to physical activity
When your heart beats faster and you breathe harder
Makes your heart stronger
Allows for larger amounts of oxygen to be delivered to your cells
Examples of aerobic activities:
Allows muscles and joints to move easily
Increases range of motion
Examples of exercises that include flexibility
Simple stretches (such as touching your toes)
Body weight strength training
Builds strength without the use of weights
There are many easy ways to incorporate physical activity into your daily lives.
Adequate nutrition is so important because food gives your body fuel. This fuel is in the form of calories, which are a kind of energy. In a day, your body needs a certain amount of calories just to function, breathe, and do all the basic stuff you do in a day. But if you are more physically active your body needs extra calories to replace the energy you used up.

FUELING YOUR BODY WITH FOOD
GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP
When you exercise, your brain releases a chemical called endorphins
These endorphins can make you feel happier
Physical activity has a positive influence on concentration and memory
It's important to drink water before, during, and after exercise. This is to make sure that you stay at your peak strength, power, and endurance
It's also important because it replenishes your fluid loss
A benefit of physical activity is that it gives you more energy for your day, but it also helps you fall asleep at night
Getting enough sleep during the night is important for being able to have energy to carry out daily physical activities
