Benefits contributed to the academic improvement through physical exercise
Since a few articles ago I have begun to highlight the enormous work of three important or essential areas for our remarkable evolution: science-technology-education, the three are intertwined to nurture each other, for example, science performs any type of research in order to bring the best tools to the field of technology and likewise to the field of education.
Therefore in recent years there have been numerous studies where the practice of physical exercise, such as sports, has been related to improve student performance, this as an escape valve due to the constant demands in those university years or in other school stages, many of us as students when we are in those periods of presentation of demanding exams we usually lock ourselves or isolate ourselves in spaces like our rooms or libraries for a certain period of time which can induce us to adopt bad habits for our health such as eating poorly and combined with the lack of some kind of physical exercise.
Anxiety is one of the most frequent consequences that can adopt a young person when he adopts periods of confinement as described above, therefore studies have shown that the performance of physical exercises help significantly to control the anxiety levels of people in general dedicated to multiple activities including being in their schooling at any level, bringing as a benefit to improve academic performance.
Let's know some physical-mental benefits of doing physical exercises, and how they have a positive impact on the academic performance of those who practice them
At this point in our rich history, it is no secret to highlight the physical and mental benefits of doing some physical exercise activity during our existence, however, it is important to ask ourselves the following question.
Can we say that physical exercise has a positive impact on the academic improvement of students in both qualitative and quantitative aspects?
According to research from the point of view of science, it has been shown that the regular performance of some physical activity or sport helps us to improve our physical and mental health, for example, our cognitive functions, for this it is important to note John Ratey who in his studies has verified that by exercising regularly we improve mainly our own personal perception, likewise we improve our mood, also our memory which is vital in the learning process.
This clearly leads us to express that by exercising regularly, in addition to achieving benefits at a corporal-mental level, we are also providing the necessary elements to activate the necessary energy used to increase the academic performance of those people who are in this process regardless of age, for example, exercising allows us to see ourselves in shape, a psychological aspect of great help for our self-esteem, and we know that it represents the fundamental variable for everything we want to achieve in life.
Strengthening self-esteem is one of the noticeable improvements with physical exercise, physical activity causes our body to release those essential natural chemicals (hormones) that make us awaken our feeling of happiness, which makes us reduce or control stress and consequently improve our brain capacity, all these are psychological variables of great influence on the academic performance of every person.
When it is recommended that physical exercise brings us numerous benefits, let's not doubt it, if we feel any kind of doubt, let's turn to our intrinsic capacity or concern for wanting to learn and investigate for ourselves and each of these studies are verifiable, and we can do this by putting it into practice and noticing if we feel these benefits.
These studies at academic-scientific level give us the best option to know and improve the different physical-mental capacities of our body, it is up to us to put it into practice or not, the documentation is at our disposal thanks to technology, that is why it will always be of great importance to highlight the joint action of the three main fields that have allowed our evolution in all senses such as science-technology-education.
Until another opportunity my dear friends.
