Health Benefits of Exercise in Children... Can Eliminate the Potential Risk of Mental Illness, Stress, Poor Self-Confidence, and Memory.

Some childhood mental health benefits of exercise for young and teen children.

  1. Reduce Stress and Increase Relaxation. A workout is a great way to relieve stress.  One of the most common mental health components is stress relief. Working out is a great way to manage the impact of stress from a stressful exam or negative experience at school.  These days with screen time at its highest, exercise can help with insomnia or sleep deprivation associated with the brain strain from the screens.
  2. Alleviate Depression and Anxiety. Physical activity releases endorphins, the happy chemical.  Studies have shown that the benefits of fitness in teens can dramatically improve depression or anxiety. Even in small amounts, can help reduce anxiety symptoms allowing them to calm down, while intense exercise can reduce anxiety sensitivity.
  3. Sharpen Focus, Memory and Prevent Future Cognitive Problems. Researchers have linked children’s brain development with level of physical fitness.  As we age, our brains have a harder time processing information.  Health benefits of fitness in teens, include reducing the chances of developing diseases like Alzheimer’s later on by boosting chemicals that prevent degeneration of brain function linked to memory and learning.
  4. Improve Self-Confidence. A fitness program can boost self-esteem and self-image.  It can provide a sense of self-worth, an opportunity to meet people and interact with others as a team.
  5. Help Control Addiction. Exercise is important and can help in addiction recovery. Exercise helps to reboot a Childs body after the negative effects and trauma from alcohol and drug abuse.
  6. Increase Productivity and Improve Creativity. Exercise on a regular basis creates increased energy and productivity in sedentary children. Participating in an outdoor, nature-based fitness program can create inspiration and creative thinking.
