Physically active boys are smarter

Kids Playing
A recent Swedish study has proposed that physically active teen boys may be smarter than their stereotypical couch-potato counterparts. The research has established an apparent link between cardiovascular fitness and smarter chaps. The results are motivating for the parents to allow their children indulge in regular physical activities in order to stay fit and exhibit better intelligence. Schools must realize the importance of physical education and allocate a dedicated chunk of time for sports and other recreational activities. The results should not be misinterpreted as if joining a gym makes the kids smarter. But the bottom-line is that optimal cognitive function can be achieved with a healthy body and regular cardiovascular exercise is vital for a sound body and mind.
