The Message is Clear..

By Kathleen Tullie

...and the proof is out there. Numerous studies, as you've seen on our social channels and elsewhere, are telling us that physical activity is good for the brain. Check out this great CLIP from Good Morning America. 

Just the simple act of moving:

  • Increases blood flow to the brain
  • Combats depression
  • Makes brain signals more efficient
  • Helps prevent cell damage

Our BOKStars have known for a while now that excercise is medicine, and before school physical activity has a positive impact on our children's academic day. But others are starting to see it now too. 

Get your kids active of course, but don't forget that you need to move as well!

    Thanks for sharing Kathleen and congrats to all the BOKStars out there (present and future)! Exercise is indeed the best medicine for the brain so be sure to keep shining and sharing these great stories and benefits. There are so many people and communities that could benefit from more movement and with a little daily dose of BOKS become healthier and happier. Active Kids = Active Minds.
