In celebration of National Walk to School Day on October 10th, the SchoolDoc.com team wants to remind parents and children on the importance of exercise, including walking, as a path to ensure health and wellness in all of us.
Since the beginning of the National Walk to School Day program, more than 8.2 million students from around the world have participated, and this year thousands of schools and communities from around the country will join next week.
There are numerous benefits in establishing a regular exercise routine for children. According to the National Institute of Health, regular exercise benefits include:
- Feel less stressed
- Feel better about themselves
- Feel more ready to learn at school
- Keep a healthy weight
- Build and keep healthy bones, muscles and joints
- Sleep better at night
In addition to establishing a healthy exercise routine for children, accuracy of medical records for school nurses is essential in case of illness or injury.
