Fit children feel better about themselves

· Exercise,health,Lifestyle

I’m back to share some more information about the benefits of physical fitness.

A study was conducted in 2016, looking at the relationship between physical fitness and psychological well-being in children aged 10–14 years.

What the researchers found was that…

Higher levels of physical fitness were associated with lower levels of:

loneliness and fewer symptoms of depression.

Higher levels of physical fitness were also associated with greater levels of:

cognitive, social and athletic competence, greater feelings of self-worth,

and better teacher reports of adaptive functioning.

The conclusions from this study were that physical fitness is associated with a range of well-being indicators for both boys and girls.
