Want to give your children a ‘head start’ in life? Get them moving.
A recent 2014 Study has shown that elementary school aged children with higher levels of cardiovascular fitness also demonstrated higher levels of cognitive control http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/24743109/?i=2&from=med%20sci%20sports%20exerc. The study noted superior reaction times and accuracy in given tasks for those children with higher aerobic fitness.
Here’s an outrageous thought – maybe engaging your children in regular physical exercise may be as valuable as hiring an academic tutor to assist in their learning?
