Health & Wellbeing - Spring is in the air!

Here at BISB, we are committed to supporting our students and school community to improve their general health and wellbeing.  Getting active is one way to do this and there are currently a wide range of native English opportunities to do so, both within our school and across the city.  This weekly feature serves to showcase what is currently on offer to help improve and sustain your activity levels as well as offer some tips and advice on how to adopt healthier lifestyle choices for you and your family.

This week has seen the beginning of both the Rainbow Challenge in Primary and meteorological spring.  For many of us we have been looking forward to this change in both season and temperature. This change generally helps with extra motivation and opportunity to develop and enhance our health and wellbeing.
 

Getting Hot & Sweaty

In the technological age, finding ways to motivate and engage our children to move away from screen time and participate in physical activity is easier said than done. The World Health Organisation reported recently that childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century and as such, the importance of sustained physical activity cannot be ignored.

There is a strong correlation between feeling hot and sweaty together with an increased heart rate and moderate to vigorous physical activity. Research suggests that 20 minutes or more of sustained moderate to vigorous physical activity is required to reap the potential rewards. Most children naturally enjoy physical activity, particularly when parents or other family members are involved. There are others who need a little more encouragement and alternative activities such as those outlined below are the perfect starting point.  The benefits of regular involvement in physical activity include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintains and reduces energy balance in the body, a crucial element in weight control
  • Strengthens the heart and lungs as well as keeping the veins and arteries clear which is crucial to reducing health complications in later life
  • Multiple psychological benefits due to feeling good endorphins which are released during exercise e.g. boosting self-esteem, reduction in stress and anxiety
  • Increased social interactions amongst family members and between children and their peers

Who can get involved & who to contact?

With both native Hungarian and English programmes available, alternative physical activities are accessible to the whole family in Budapest this spring.
