While you could choose the form of activity, what’s crucial is understanding the need to be consistent at what your child does. As per a recent study, sticking to a workout plan of moderate intensity over a period of six months has been directly linked to the increase in the volume of selected brain regions.
Any form of brisk exercise raises your child’s heart rate, improves breathing and increases the blood flow to their brain. This leads to neurogenesis, a process which promotes the production of neurons in those areas of your child’s brain that control thinking. This helps the child develop an awareness of their ability to manage stress and gives them the ability to deal with situations. After all, exercise is a good form of stress.
