Physical activity & exercise for youth & teens

Teen volleyballExercising regularly and being active makes you feel good, gives you energy, and helps your brain to work better. Because it helps you focus mentally and pay attention, it also helps you to study and work.

Physical activity also helps you to beat depression, and can give you opportunities to meet new people. For your best performance, try to aim for 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
