NiE Exercise Right

EXERCISE, fitness, physical activity, sport - whatever you want to call it all these terms basically mean, get off the couch and give your body the chance to strengthen muscles, stretch and do aerobic activity.

Not only does exercise keep you fit and healthy but it can benefit you socially, emotionally and intellectually.

Research has shown that children who do regular physical activity feel more confident; have more energy; have improved sleep; are happy and relaxed; have better concentration; learn teamwork skills; develop new friendships; are more motivated; better organised and have positive social behaviours.
