Wellness Tip 9

“Children and adolescents ages 6 through 17 should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily.”
This is a quote made by the CDC and for good reason. Exercise is essential, and can have many benefits for your health. It can strengthen your muscles and bones, prevent weight gain and certain diseases, and improve your mood! Obesity-caused diseases are the number one cause of death in America. One way to prevent these deaths is to get exercise every day. Not getting enough exercise could lead to heart disease, increased blood pressure, and cholesterol, and type two diabetes.
Most students at Rosemont get their activity through PE, but nobody has it every day, so you should exercise at home when you can, getting at least one hour every day. Some ways to get exercise are to run, hike, play a sport, and more. One very beneficial form of exercise is aerobic exercise, or cardio, which includes swimming, running, cycling, or fast walking. It can reduce your risk of type two diabetes, depression, heart disease, stroke, and more. Any form of cardiovascular workout can be very good for your health, but whatever kind of exercise works best for you is great!
