Students exercising can concentrate in class

Through recent research in my lab, I have also discovered why exercise improves academic performance. Students who move their bodies a lot get better grades becauseLess inattentiveness and hyperactivity during classIt’s mostlyattention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)For children with AD, exercise can help relieve cognitive, behavioral, and physical symptoms.

Abby’s son, Aiden, has ADHD and needs daily exercise. In elementary school, Aiden took daily gym classes and Abby quickly noticed the benefits.

“My concentration has improved dramatically. My brain is so much clearer. It’s almost as if the exercise has taken away my son’s restlessness.”

However, when Aiden entered high school, his daily exercise routine disappeared and his restlessness returned. Abby is also warned by Aiden’s teacher for his violent behavior.

It was then that I realized again. My son’s brain needed exercise to think. Abby encourages Aiden to exercise every morning before school.and twoAs soon as I started exercising, I stopped getting attentionHe is.

Exercise is the best medicine

Children and adults with ADHD have trouble concentrating because their prefrontal cortex lacks the nutrients it needs. There is a lack of blood flow and dopamine.

Exercise has the power to correct this deficit by modifying the same nervous system on which remedies such as Ritalin and Adderall act. And there are no unwanted side effects.
