An Active Body Makes for a Healthy Spirit

By Laura Dudley Subscribe to RSS | April 16th 2012 | Views:

It is important that children get a well-rounded combination of time outside as much as inside, that includes time away from school, and on weekends, when it comes to childhood development. Spending all of their personal time inside, either watching TV or playing video games, does not provide the same kind of developmental benefits a child gets from going outdoors and being active, either at the park, or simply playing around the block.

Either by playing basketball or catch in the driveway, or even using their imagination to create a whole other kind of place to play in, there is much a child can do to stay active around your own home, whatever the case, there truly is no limit to what a kid is able to do when given the proper means to express themselves. By being able to exert themselves in an outdoor setting, free of boundaries and the type of structure they're used to in the remainder of their lives; don't underestimate the value of imagination in a child's development and how it could help them in other areas down the road.

When in school, kids are taught to succumb to a number of rules, and even in preschool, they are beginning to graps the idea of structure, but the time spent on playgrounds for preschools is just as important as the rest of the day's tasks. This goes on all throughout the rest of a child's educational career as well, from recess in elementary school, all the way up to physical education in high school; the importance of outdoor activities throughout adolescence should be appreciated for providing children with more than just physical exertion, but also with valuable problem solving skills that they can apply to many facets of everyday life.

Kids can also make the most of all that their neighborhood parks have to offer when out of school, with even the most basic plastic outdoor commercial playground delivering enough to get them out there and active as opposed to being closed up all day inside. In order for kids to really make the most of their earlier years and get in the habit of staying active and healthy, getting them outdoors on a regular basis could help them gain an appreciation for all that they would learn and explore in the world outside.

The benefits of an active lifestyle will be carried with them, even into adulthood, and the skills kids develop here will be carried on all throughout their lives.
