CHS’s After School Program believes in the research of healthy, active kids make better students. In the article, “15 Minutes of Walking on A Daily Basis Can Change Your Body Drastically” published by Higher Perspective research shows that “Exercise buys you three to seven additional years of life. It is an antidepressant, it improves cognitive function, and there is now evidence that it may retard the onset of dementia.” Other areas 15 minutes of exercise each day helps improve is to lower the risk of diabetes, lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, reduces high blood pressure, help digestion, reduces pain and enhances mobility, enhances bone health, improves cognitive performance, leads to longevity, and improves mood.
the average age of depression being 15 and suicide being the second leading
cause of death in teens (ChildTrends, 2019), Peake After School is taking an
active movement against depression, social anxiety, mood disorders, and
suicidal ideations. By getting teens together, moving, enjoying sunshine, and participating
in healthy activities that they choose, students respond to one another in a
more positive way and have a more positive approach to tutoring and homework
