Frequent exercise enhances our concentration in any environment that we may be in. If we’re working daily, at school or even university, participating in frequent exercise will help us perform better in our work and most importantly help keep us motivated.

Now, you’re probably wondering what my view on this is? I can tell you now, I categorically agree with this popular opinion.

Why else was PE and gym class a weekly routine in year 7? Although it gives students a choice to study sport if they’re interested and helps with scholarships, this break from a boring school day could motivate, encourage and increase the level of contentment in students.

Even if it’s once a week, the education system believes that it’s important to incorporate a gentle amount of exercise into our timetable.

A scientific perspective suggests that physical exercise makes your brain work a lot more efficiently as the brain could be viewed as a muscle which requires exercise. “Scientists are showing that the runner’s high and the yogi’s tranquillity have profound effects on your brain. Moreover, specific physical activities can markedly alter its structure in precise ways.” Suggesting that frequent exercise can definitely have an extravagant effect on the way that your brain operates!

Motivating or what?

Similarly, frequent exercise will also improve our memory which is great for revision and remembering all those stats and theories you spend ages trying to reminisce. You could potentially better your grades by an hour of exercise a week.

“According to a study done by the Department of Exercise Science at the University of Georgia, even briefly exercising for 20 minutes facilitates information processing and memory functions.” I mean, you can’t argue with science, can you?

Who would think that light, frequent exercise would have that much of an effect on brainwork and enhancing our concentration.

A lot of students attend the gym on a daily or weekly basis from the friends I’ve met at university, especially during exam season. This has got to have a positive experience on their grades, right? At least in terms of boosting their brain activity.

Overall, I’d say that gym and regular exercise every week is beneficial for those who want to enhance their feeling of contentment and living a healthy lifestyle. Even if it’s just 20 minutes every couple of days and provides a slight improvement, every little helps a demotivated student.
