The Benefits of Exercise in the Classroom Effects of Exercise on Learning and Education With the problem of childhood obesity looming, finding ways to increase our children’s physical activity levels is becoming increasingly important. Even so, lowering our children’s body fat percentages is just one small aspect of the bigger picture. Physical activity has a “positive influence on memory, concentration, and classroom behavior.” Exercise Can Improve Students’ Mental Health.

Dr. Ratey’s research also shows that exercise can be the best defense against a lot of the common mental health issues that students struggle with. Stress.

Physical exercise and academic achievement. Studies suggest that physical exercise yields shortand long-term benefits on achievement in the classroom. For instance, one experiment found that a 20 minute session of walking boosted children’s subsequent performance on tests of reading, spelling, and arithmetic (Hillman et al 2009a). Neurotrophins assure the survival of neurons in areas responsible for learning, memory, and higher thinking.

Physical activity has benefits beyond improved grades, too. Basch extrapolates current research and connects physical activity to absenteeis. Exercise strengthens both the prefrontal cortex (which is involved in executive functioning) and the hippocampus (which plays a key role in memory and learning).

In this way, exercise supports our ability to think creatively, make decisions, focus and retrieve key information. Besides strengthening the cardiovascular and muscular systems and lowering the risk of many diseases, research suggests that physical activity also positively impacts the brain and improves cognition, mood, attention and academic achievement in students. The effect on math scores, perceptions of the program and daily physical activity levels were then compared to a control group. Students participating in the exercise increased math test scores and rated themselves more confident and positive about their math abilities. Physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development, it’s also important to learning.

Research shows that physical activity whether it’s team sports, bike riding, swimming at the beach or playground games has positive effects on the brain and on school performance. In addition to its general effects on physical and mental well-being, regular physical activity may be linked to improved concentration and learning abilities. Regular trips to the gym are great, but don’t worry if you can’t find a large chunk of time to exercise every day.

Any amount of activity is better than none at all. To reap the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your household chores. Consistency is key.

Provide information regarding the value of physical activity on students’ classroom behavior, such as the fact that exercise increases blood flow to the brain and thus helps people think better.

In addition to providing a high-quality health and physical education program, all classroom teachers should consider integrating short physical activity breaks (30 seconds to five minutes) into lessons in order to motivate students, increase attention, stimulate learning, and increase overall physical activity levels.

  • dr.prescribed me to avoid exercise like playing basketball cause i have mild seizure but it’s my stress reliever and i feel it makes my body more stronger.

  • After being exercising contiuously for more than a year I quited it due to so much pressure and stuff to do in med school with no enough time now although I study more than I used to but less effctively I just can’t concentrate and control stress during exams like I used to I decided to go back on my prev. routine from today on,no matter how little time I have..mental health should be a priority this is apart from the physical benefits gained though exercising ����

  • I used to be on my high school/college rowing team, but now I’m starting to get into triathlon (swim/bike/run). I’ve always found it motivating for me to stay on an exercise routine when I have the mindset of competitive athletics. Hopefully, these habits will stick in medical school!

  • I couldn’t agree more on everything you’ve said in this video. I started going to the gym about 9 months ago (after many years of being completely sedentary) because I desperately needed a quick fix solution to my anxiety and insomnia issues without having to start taking medication for it. Only about a month or so after I started, my anxiety level improved drastically and so did the quality of my sleep but I was surprised as to how much it positively affected other aspects of my life as well. My go to workout is HIIT on the stairmaster:)

  • I like to go to the gym with my sister every Sunday to do weight training for my arms and legs. Some other day in the week is when I train abs and glutes, usually alone

  • Umm I have some anger issues and I was wondering if anyone can lend me a hand and give me some tips for self control I don’t know what to do I lack motivation a lot but idk where to start my journey of self improvement??? Any tips???

  • Your videos are THE BEST. I used to compete as a dancer and it has helped me to be more confident and learn to enjoy the pain of the process.

    The discipline skills I learned in my time as a competitive dancer have spilled over into my studies and my current workout routine! I mostly lift weights (leg day ftw!) and do cardio.

  • Ever since started running intervals it’s like meth and addicted to running ��. Never imagine saying that in my life and helped with my SHTF training for when zombies attack. I learned to run �� in the zombie game app.

  • yeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeye yeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeye

  • I just searched ‘ benifits of exercising’ cause I want my self to be encouraged for doing it so thanks frnd��…. but lol
    I am so damn lazyy��������

  • I do a 30-minute jog or 15-minute home workout before going to school. It boosts my energy and makes me feel productive. It needs to be done in the morning, because I tend to get lazy during the afternoon/night.

  • Sir please reply. I am a school student who has to wake up at 6:00. I READ for 1 hr in the morning. I cycle down to school and after coming home I need to study for 4 hrs. When should I exercise. I have no time. And btw I come home at 4:00pm.

  • Meditation is the best thing in my life. Learned to control my emotions, stress and mind. When you control your mind you control your happiness. Our friends said my wife and myself look more than 10 years younger. Cheers.

  • This video will always be on my watch later no matter how many times I watch it. These are principles to use for life that I do not want to forget.
    God bless!

  • I train Brazilian jiu jitsu 3 times a week + biking there (only when it’s good weather) which is around a 40 min ride back and forward. I also bike to school everyday which is a 20 min ride to school and back.

  • People lie.Execising hurts,it doesnt help my mood,it doesn’t make me feel good.I am perfectly happy chilling on junk food,drinking a soda,lazing on my bed or couch and enjoying my anime.Who cares about working out.People who work out have to admit their not as happy as people who laze on the bed or couch eating junk food.

  • I just watching this for school and I go to the comments and most of them are like oh yay �� thank you for this amazing video and I like really and why do they not blink

  • I miss being able to exercise. After my knee injury I can’t run, can’t cycle, difficult to walk, or walk so far I have difficulty getting back and the only swimming pool in my city is far away and too expensive.

  • I normally go swimming two times a week for an hour (2000m aprox.) but i’m planning to do some full-body 1 hour workouts at home to fill the week with something.

  • I used to be super agressive now im way more relaxed in all situations I work out 5 days a week and also working out makes you super happy due to the hormones released when excercising! If you have mental problems hit the gym trust me

  • I train martial arts (aikido) for one hour twice or thrice a week and the other days I work out the whole body with push ups, planks, and leg rutines (one hour each day). Also I am looking forward to include one or two hours of yoga a week. Sunday is rest day.

  • How come you show so many weights in this video when the studies you base your video on clearly says “Aerobic” training? And as far as I know, Aerobic training is NOT lifting weights?

  • Great video.
    I managed to get into the habbit of running in the winter and it completely stopped being hard to go to the gym.
    But I don’t feel that it gave me more dicipline in going to socialise (or in anything else)…which I think were useful to do but feels like a chore to me.
    Do you have a tipp on how to get over that? I don’t quite have social axiety just some aversion I’d need to get over. I don’t know what would be the small enough step to get started but not overwhelmed. The equivalent of just running slow 20 minutes at first nothing more to get into the habit of doing it and ending up being able to run 5km without needing to stopp.

  • I have seen people with super focusing abilities and they are super smart but they don’t move a bit. So if they can outperform everyone in terms of focusing, concentrating and working hard, what makes them so different from normal people that they don’t need exercise and are able to deliver day in day out? I have personally seen 2 examples who are super performers in their fields and they don’t ever exercise in any form!

  • Working out with others at a fixed schedule (witch should not be flexible) is the easiest for me. So that I know in avance when I will be working out. Personaly i do bouldering.

  • My story is: When i was a kid about 5-6 years old I had a bit anxiety or claustrophobic, I didn’t use to exercise, then from 6 to 12 years old I used to play soccer and run like 2-4 hours 5 days a week. I felt perfect, my mental health was perfect, but then from 12 years old to 14 I just became a couch potato, watching TV all day long and playing videogames at weekends, since 13 years old and a half or so I started to feel anxiety a little bit and progressively. When I turned out 14 I had my first panic attack at the cinema. Then my anxiety became extreme, till 16 years old I started to exercise again, my heart felt like jumping from my chest, but I started to feel better, then when I turned out 18 years old I started to work out at gym, and again my mental health improved a lot. My question Is, some people like me MUST exercise regularly in order to have a good mental health? Or maybe my brain developed to always stay in movement because I used to exercise a lot when I was 6-12 years old? And now my brain does not work properly without exercise? Maybe this must be my lifestyle. PD. English Is not my mother tongue, so sorry for any mistake.

  • i just put my exercises in the morning after i wake up, like 30 min easy warm up and streching make a whole lot of diference in a day, and now o started cicling again, runing and hiking when i have the time. the habbit tooke two weeks to input in my daily routine, but i was wouth every moment.

  • kick boxing 2 times a week an hour. and running. this takes me up to 3 and a half hours a week.

    ill say that again. 3.5 hours a week, if you cant bring that up.. your probbaly 2 addicted to your tv/youtube or youre working too much:P

  • It is worth checking Dr. Ratey’s last two books:

    “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain”

    “Go Wild: Free Your Body and Mind from the Afflictions of Civilization”

  • From my own experience, I believe since I started taking lifting seriously and making it fit into my scheduled days to work out, it has helped me stick to something even when bored with it. I’ve gotten a lot stronger when it comes to studying because I’m able to bring my mind back to whatever it is and I begin to feel a strong determination to want to know it and understand it. Similar to working out, once I’m tired and feel I can’t go anymore, I bring my mind back to it and feel great once I keep going. Also, you’ve got a great channel. I’m not a med student but I’m going into nursing and your videos give great advice everyone should know, especially those in school:) thank you and I look forward to more!

  • I am trying to make some healthy changes to my life. I WANT to change so bad. I find myself watching too much TV, isolating myself from friends, and not taking advantage of my down time. I really make me want to start using my time more efficiently. Keep up the great work.

  • I looked after my elderly Mum during the last 5 years of her life. When she died I was 55 years old and decided to take control of my own health before I became unwell. I joined a gym with exercise classes even though I thought I hated exercise. It was so surprising to me that I became motivated to improve my diet as well as exercise. I made friends at the classes too. I think the classes should be prescribed by doctors

  • The main takeaway here: Don’t work at an Amazon fulfillment center. Be homeless and you will be stress-free and have an active lifestyle

  • Health issue can seriously get tough to handle alone and a bit dangerous too if it’s ignored. Don’t be scared to ask for help. If you want, you can hire a professional to help you too, like

  • Very good points. Exercise is certainly great for the mind. I’m a huge believer in this. I’m a marathon runner and I know how great I feel after a long run. 

  • Frankly? Purge people from your life that denigrate your healthy habits or lifestyle. You’d be amazed at how many people out there want to drag you down.

  • This is pretty much a discussion of statistics and research with a lot of cheesy graphs and charts and not a whole lot of useful information on the effects of exercise. Don’t waste your time here unless statistics is what you’re interested in.

  • When you get passed that burn; it’s really nothing, just some minor shaking and alot of sweat. After time, that shaking will decrease and you’ll reach a new burning point.

  • Whoa… I cannot believe I couldn’t even see the commercial through my tears and then he said the first time he watched it he cried! I’m only crying because I’m thinking of my dear sister Eva in the nursing home.

  • Negative Strees Mental stress Emotional stress all dissolves, when you foster a meditative ritual or practice. There are many disciplines, try them all, little by little you will find the style you feel most progress. READING people like KEN WIBER is a good start.

  • People who excercise have

    Good posture while sitting standing
    They tend to get out of their own way without any anxiety
    My pain bearing capability increases with regular excercise
    Able to enjoy the present moment
    My face looks bright after excercise
    Will be able to manage day to day stress
    Being less emotional with life.

  • Food can either steal energy or give you energy, you need to know the difference. I personally gave up sodas and red meats same time 1979. Never pork, culture practices. If you are what you eat, and how your cells regenerate, your need for eating for function far out weights your eating for fun. Humans creatures of habits; either you CREATED, good habits or bad habits. your choice, certainly is mine. As I get older more raw food, less fried foods, less dairy if any. Stopped cheese yrs ago, never milk.Yes I do drink coffee moderately and I smoke pot moderately, 55 yrs now. 68 yrs old and I am busy, 7 am to 6 pm, 2 hour lunch, bed by 10. pm. Life is fun when you know what it is you are doing.

  • Health is the greatest gift you give yourself.Contentment is the greatest wealth, trust is the best relationship. Peace is the highest happiness.

  • My personal training buiness my own luifstyle has to be the role model. I train people from 15 to now my oldest 77 yrs old. Minimal 3 times a week. average 8 yrs my clients become my friends, Charles with me 23 yrs, Jake & Jack 12 yrs, Lirio 13 years. People will not stay with you if no progress, and nice personality and over the many yrs people are HAPPY& Healthy.

  • Gravity became my friend through sports and 50 yrs of weightlifting. The mind talks but the body knows I learned this early 13 yrs old and never stopped lifting. now 68 years old, looking back, my strength physical, confidence, discipline, patience, insight, vision, respect and most of all success through failure..there is always another plate. lets look, no doctors since my basketball scholarship in Canada 1967. I moved to Hawaii for 20 yrs, got healthier stronger larger, power lifting & Basketball, good food and smoking pot now 55 years. Results no illness, no doctors, no hospitals, no medication only meditation. No surgery, no problems. Life is great when you know what your doing. You are what you do, not what you say. My girls daughters Cross-fit Champions, early thirties. Still work train teach others private studio gym where I create champions. Personally I still punch heavy bag daily 15-25 minutes every day. Gravity is who you are. Food and sleep is next, be your own doctor, smoke pot.

  • “It is NOT a cure”
    Okay, so all the scientific research into brain functions when exercise is introduced aren’t accurate? You even state in this video that it’s proven to prevent it.
    People if you’re reading this comment, don’t just watch this one video and believe it all, increase your research into how the brain works.
    I’m really pissed off that this video has given people with depression and anxiety a glimmer of hope and a way out to then only say “IT ISNT A CURE SO DONT GET YOUR HOPES UP”. That’s a real middle finger to those people by the way.

  • Excellent!! As a person who is suffering from depression and insomnia and is a parent caregiver, fitness and eating well have been my best partners! I personally love the Shaun T training, but if you can’t go to the gym, you can also check Popsugar fitness videos on YouTube and it’s free! Go for it!

  • that’s what I need, I cut my feet with a lawnmower 2 weeks ago, got in bed for 2 weeks…. and for the first time in years I feel the exercise abstention rut…. it is awfull…

  • Although exercise is not compulsory in our lives, it boosts productivity of our efforts. It’s not clever not to utilize the effects of exercise. Going jogging for 30mins in the morning has become one of my habit since I read “Spark”. I could be able to concentrate on my work and retain it longer than before. Exercise expedites my brain to generate neurotransmitters which improve my mood. In conclusion, exercise can improve brain functions, improve moods and be useful for anti-aging. I cannot justify the person who don’t exercise.

  • Keep BACK straight on way down damaging your BACK will not help. Bend at your knees not WAIST horrible start arms out after boom then a controlled SQUAT!!!

  • It becomes very basic stuff after a while,and you do it because its only logical to do so. Like grabbing an apple instead of a chocolate bar or water instead of pop,coke, pepsi you know! all that crap that makes money on them.

  • I think of all the dumbshits in schools who were sports maniacs! Did they waste their intelligence because they were unaware of their increased intelligence, or did exercise encourage them to behave stupidly and grunt like animals and abandon all culture? Maybe we’ve gone overboard with celebrating kids who do too much sports/exercise. “Put in the hard work and study asshole”. Maybe the pretty girls are at fault for dating the jocks, and not the nerds. I don’t know. This shitty discovery of enhanced intelligence doesn’t change a damn thing for kids who do too much exercise and sports. The nerds will read this shit, and move some more and put a greater distance between the dumb jock and themselves in terms of career and educational achievement! Later on most dumb jocks are going to eat too much, experiment with substances and alcohol, run away from education and lose it completely. I have seen too much of this in my life. Maybe some old fashioned kicking is in order, but oops sorry I shouldn’t be saying this. Kids have to told the truth of what it takes to make it BIG and this dumb video needs to handled with caution. Methinks, You cannot celebrate the dumb jock too much amigos…

  • I’d like to see what is found about some people who get worse from too vigorous of physical exercise. There are some. WHY do they get worse from, say, running the mile for PE [repeatedly; they never reach any level of tolerance for it, even doing this 3+ tames weekly]? Do those have difference in their bodies, which fails to adapt to doing more physical exercise? Or, is it the kind of exercise [say, digging ground using a shovel goes well, but running does not?]

  • Hello I am a physical education teacher from israel. I was very excited to hear this TED talk. If passable can you add hebrew translation to this video? and if you need help to translate I will be more than happy to help

  • Funny… I used to bike and walk more often, but now I hike and lift weights more often, even though I’d rather do a bit of all those.:-)

  • What kind of exercise?
    Now there is people who does triathlon, that seems too much.
    I don’t think this is good for us. We need a balance, no extremes!

  • There are three main takeaways here: Make sure you exercise regularly, consistently and longitudinally, practice good nutrition (educate yourself from credible sources) and try to get enough sleep… oh and make sure you exercise enough.

  • The habits part of the video really hit me. Do you have any tips for how to keep energy levels up during/after exercise? I have been trying to eat healthier, getting atleast 7 hours of sleep a night, but i still find it difficult to incorporate exercise because I always feel exhausted afterwards and even during it, and this deters me from wanting to exercise afterschool because I need the energy to study. Its almost like I have to choose between exercising after school or studying well.

  • Fantastic, I would love to know what he thinks about how important sufficient motor skill developmmnet is for kids to be activ and enjoy participation in a sport they like

  • Yup, couldn’t agree more! As an ex-professional swimmer myself and as a person who regularly exercises on a daily basis i can guarantee you that exercising does help you learn faster and retain better. Headed to the gym right now. Good luck and exercise away

  • Thanks John. I heard you speak to Project Adventure’s 40th Anniversary celebrations. I was so excited to share your work with others here in Australia, but I needed a short video presentation, and now I have it. Well done. I’ll be posting this on my website blog today… thanks, Mark Collard

  • Meri shoulder stiff ho gye hn..i mean tightness ho gye hn..i mean tension should jaysa hota hn thik wayse..toh yea gym join karne se tik hoga ya fir exercise se? Plz batao

  • i excercise every day for a short amount of time (10-15minutes) because i have no time to go to the gym because of switching hours of college. that is why these short excercises work better for me and i always feel happy and motivated when i’m done with them:)

  • Great lecture! I deal with older patients all day and many have not taken care of themselves and their quality of life sucks. They need to hear this message at a young age so that their quality of life is better in old age. Very well done!

  • Have been eating right, working out, taking vitamins and supplements, even taking colder showers. None of it seems to be working (in terms of mental health physically I’ve noticed a change, but I don’t care about that), it’s really frustrating. It feels like I’m being sold a lie.

  • I grew up at the YMCA in TORONTO Ontario, Central & West End and downtown YMHA. I started an athletic identity early and this brought me great success. Hockey gave me courage, confidence, no fear attitude, Basketball gave me University education, and Power lifting body building gave me the world. Google Peter Knopfler, check articles written for “Body” read my “Inspiration to exercise”. Have Fun.

  • ive been excersing a lot every day. there are two things that I have to do every day. 1. read the bible and 2. exercise. Give your life to Jesus yall. God is changing me slowly and it feels good.

  • As someone who just started exercising on a regular basis you really don’t have to go to gym to do any of this.

    You’d be surprised to know how much gains you can get (mentally and physically) with just your own body weight.

    Here are some of my fav –

    Push Ups
    Squats/One Legged Squats
    Mountain Climbers
    Butt kicks
    Abb crunches/Double crunches
    Bicycle kicks
    Leg Raises
    Body Planks

    I do my routine in kitchen area of my apartment, every morning right before getting into shower. If you start out with just three of these, it won’t take more than 15 mins (including breaks) give that to your body and mind because you deserve it.:)

  • Benefits of exercise
    Make us ready to face any stressful situation outside the world
    Make us less responsive to depression and make us calm.
    Help me stop over thinking and makes me to be in the present moment.
    Automatically my posture gets erected while sitting and standing
    Increases my ability to handle emotions and anger and fear

  • my problem is I’m really impatient with this, I don’t want to wait months to be able to walk more then 10 minutes before I literally start coughing and wheezing.

  • to be honest the most productive and smart people on the planet barely exercise and they still have these benefit to the max without it

  • 1. Exercising will keep you healthy.
    2. Exercising will help you lose weight, which will improve your health and also make you look better.
    3. Exercising will make you feel better and you will have a lot of energy.

  • Managing your early hours on intense stressful excercise helps in giving a glimpse
    1) to face a stressful day in office
    2)to overcome depression in life
    3) to manage your anxiety while in public place

  • I have been health and wellbeing therapist for nearly 40 years and have a great love of exercise. I love the simplicity of this video and have saved in my playlist. Well done:)

  • @jratey…this is fantastic. Powerful message…yes…exercise is “miracle grow” for the brain!! “More fit a child is the better learner they are”…keep going!!

  • Reading his book “Spark” was a defining moment for me.  I’ve dedicated my life to sharing how exercise can transform all our institutions.  #wellenssrevolution #traindeep  

  • my motivation is a healthy lifestyle and i exercise 6 times a week, dropped alcohol almost completely from binge drinking, i don’t eat junk food no more and i gradually feel better with myself in every aspect of my life, a healthy lifestyle is goddamn amazing

  • The boosting memory factor really resonates with me. Before playing the piano i usually do some strenuous jump roping. I definitely aids in the memory of which notes to play.
