The More They Burn the Better They Learn

As students head back to school this fall, many are excited for a fresh start-- new teachers, new friends, and new goals. One way to start the year out right is to do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. Not only does exercise help to prevent obesity, it also can impact your grades! Research shows that students who earn mostly As are twice as likely to get regular exercise compared to students who earn mostly Ds and Fs.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new infographic, the More They Burn the Better They Learn, illustrates how exercising your body helps to exercise your mind.
