Many behaviours and habits we learn as kids become life-long lessons that set us on the path for success. For example, studies show that kids who are physically active continue this healthy habit into their adulthood, choosing to lead active lifestyles and make positive food choices.
Getting our kids moving and maintaining good physical health can help improve their well being further than the eye can see.
Age-appropriate sport and exercise aids the process of developing strong musculoskeletal systems that can tolerate and adapt to the demands of your child’s developmental stage.
Skills like hand-eye coordination, balance and predictive processes are paramount to our everyday movements and become subconscious once developed and maintained. When training for a specific sport, these skills are the most transferable and one of the more recognisable differences between kids who have led an active lifestyle and those who haven’t.
Heart health isn’t just for the grown ups. Increasing heart muscle strength can improve oxygen capacity and encourage healthy organs well into adulthood.
Physical activity promotes the production of antibodies circulating in the blood; leading to improved immunity support and help little bodies fight off illness.
The noticeably happier mood after your kids have been chasing each other in the yard is thanks to the release of serotonin and dopamine. These happy hormones can help improve concentration and ward away grumpy faces.
As serotonin is a precursor for melatonin, encouraging energy-burning activities 3-4 hours before bedtime can help your little ones get a restful sleep to help with all of the repairing and growing their bodies do at night time.
