See how much more processing (the red, yellow, green colors) your brain is able to do if you have regular exercise. Studies are showing that young people who exercise do better academically than those who don’t exercise. Exercising students have better math test scores, reading test scores, and they can more easily sit in class without getting distracted. Exercise has also been shown to make it easier for someone with ADHD to do well in school. So, this is your brain on exercise-ready to do really well in school.
