Should children exercise every day?

Exercise. Some kids really hate the thought of it and always try to avoid it. I agree that children should exercise every day as exercise is really important. It is proven to help you live longer. I will be explaining why daily exercise is important.

Parents normally think it is okay if their children are overweight, but it’s not really the case. From research I know that obesity can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breathing problems and sleeping problems. I know that parents would never want their children to get any of these health issues. Kids who are unfit have a greater chance of getting sick.

I believe a good way to exercise is to join a sports team or play outdoor games daily. For example, playing rugby, netball, basketball etc, all these sports are great ways to keep fit. To keep fit, you also need to eat the right foods. Remember to eat your fruits, vegetables and vitamins. Eating the right foods is really important as it helps improve energy levels. There are three elements to fitness: endurance, strength and flexibility.

I am aware that going on daily walks, runs, riding a bike, skipping or even running up and down the stairs a few times, are a good way to exercise. It’s those little things that help. Exercising can help improve your flexibility and stamina. It can also help strengthen your bones or muscles and it gives you a better outlook on life. Exercise to kids, is playing outside games or being physically active.

I sympathize with those people who find it hard to exercise, but they just need to try hard and push themselves. Once you believe you will achieve. The people on the “Biggest Loser” were huge but they never gave up and look at them now. I’m just saying that it is never too late to start exercising.

There is a great difference between a fit and an unfit person. For example an unfit person will be lazy. He or she will keeps zoning out during class. They will never be able to focus or concentrate and will have problems sleeping which will lead to grumpiness and no one likes a grumpy person. A fit person will usually be more focused and will be able to concentrate better. He or she will be energetic and happy most of the time.

So I hope you have realized that I have proved my point. Children should exercise every day. There are serious consequences if they don’t. Everyone wants to be happy and exercising will help you to be happy.
