EXERCISE AND REJUVENATION TO CUT STRESS 

EF2087

Research shows that kids who play sports or who are physically active do better in school. It is advantageous to do regular exercise since it makes various organs of the body stronger. Regular exercise makes heart muscles become stronger, digestion becomes efficient and skin also gets a glow since the pores open up. Exercises enable you to build skill related and health related fitness. Choose exercises that you enjoy so that you can have fun. If exercising is fun, you’ll be more likely to stick with the program for life. If you face any kind of problem in carrying out these activities, consult your health care provider. You can start with:

  • Walking or cycling 15 minutes a day at least thrice a week.
  • Swimming or playing any sport once a week.
  • Going for a jog in the evening for 15 minutes thrice a week.

BARRIERS TO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

  • Self-efficiency – once you develop ‘I don’t need it’ attitude you will never do any kind of exercise.
  • Preference for indoor activities: Too much uses of electronic gadgets (computer, cell phone, tabs, electronic games) or watching TV may reduce you physical activity.
  • Low energy level: High consumption of ‘Junk food’ slows down desire for physical activity.
  • Low level of Motivation.
  • Time constraints.
  • Emphasis on academics – force to decrease in physical activity.

WHY TO EXERCISE?

Physical Exercise and Sports help improve general circulation, facilitate increased blood flow to the brain, and are instrumental in raising the levels of epinephrine and endorphins – all of which may reduce stress, improve mood, induce a calming effect, and perhaps as a result improve achievement.

One should always take a break amidst long hours study and should go for physical activities or exercise in form of sports. However, these breaks should not be too long as they may then affect the tempo of studies. Taking a break and going for physical activities like sports for around 10-30 minutes after every 45-50 minutes of continuous study rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. Studying regularly for more than 50 minutes may reduce concentration levels. Sitting continuously at the study table for long hours is, therefore, a waste of both energy and time. In short, it is unproductive.

WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE AND HOW MUCH TO EXERCISE?

Exercise has to be aerobic-cardiovascular type where your heart rate as well as respiratory rate goes up. How much to exercise is very subjective thing to answer. But the exercise must be strenuous enough to make your respiratory and heart rate at least one and a half times of the normal rate and after reaching this level it should be maintained for minimum of 5 minutes. If you don’t exercise, your brain loses efficiency but when you do a heavy exercise you become fatigued and drowsy. So you should plan your exercise in such a way that you don’t fall in any of these categories.
