Ms. Dixon’s Counselor’s Corner
Don’t forget to exercise!
We are at that point in the school year where stress can start to build. School has become routine and classwork is getting more rigorous. When stress starts to build it is important to find ways to outlet the tension students are feeling from their classes, friendships, and new sleep habits. One of the best ways students can relieve stress and stay healthy is to maintain daily exercise. Whether it is playing outside, swinging on the swings, going for a family walk, or playing a sport, exercise is extremely important to physical, mental, and emotional health. Studies show that exercise relieves stress, helps people to have a good nights’ sleep, gives people more energy, and all around fuels endorphins that ultimately make for happier human beings.
Sneak exercise into your study time.
Encourage students to take frequent breaks when studying. Rather than watching a show on t.v. or playing games on their phone, encourage your students to get fresh air—maybe run around the house a few times or do 50 jumping jacks; anything to get them moving! Students who exercise daily will be not only be healthier, but happier and less stressed.
