Let’s Get Physical by Nikki Kolar - PE Teacher

It is no secret that exercise is good for our bodies, brain and emotions. It releases endorphins and makes us feel good. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps us sleep better, and boosts the overall mood. Research indicates that even modest amounts of exercise can make a difference!

While we are self-isolating, there are plenty of ways to increase the levels of physical activity in and around the home.

Required to set up a home office? Take a vigorous walk to grab the much-needed coffee, go for a bike ride or a brisk walk around the block (remember to breathe deeply and enjoy the sunshine), swim a few lengths to refresh your mind and body. Stretch and breathe.

The whole family at home? Play a game of 4-square, play tag with your children in the yard, go for a family walk (take the dog along).

Just for fun ... Put the music loud and shake it off! Gently stretch while watching television, choose a GoNoodle video to get the whole family moving.
