Exercise Improves Teens' Academic Performance
24 March 2014
According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, research shows that regular, moderate to vigorous exercise improves teens' academic performance in English, Maths and Science. The improvements were sustained over the long term, with the findings point to a dose-response effect -- the more intensive exercise was taken, the greater the impact on test results. It is recommended that all children get 60 minutes of exercise per day.
