How to Have a Balanced Life With Exercise: An SEL Lesson for Grade 1

Exercising daily is one of the most beneficial actions one can take for one’s health. It's no surprise that physical activity is often encouraged from a young age.

In a recent lesson, grade 1 students learned the benefits of regular exercise. But as they continue on the Road to Good Health, they learn that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

Enter Davey Doddle, who encounters the Daily Twins playing non-stop from early in the morning until very late at night. While it's great that the boys are getting plenty of exercise, Davey cautions that they are overdoing it. He emphasizes that it's important to balance physical activities with calmer ones. After all, while exercise is important, it's equally important to give our bodies and minds a break.

"While it's easy to assume that more exercise is always better, the truth is that our bodies need a balance of activity and rest to stay healthy."

Some people might identify with the Daily Twins, constantly on the move and never taking the time to rest and recharge. While it's easy to assume that more exercise is always better, the truth is that our bodies need a balance of activity and rest to stay healthy. On the other hand, there are those who spend all their time sitting and not moving much, which can also be detrimental to health.

It's important to find a balance that works for each individual's lifestyle and preferences. For some, this might mean engaging in a mix of high-intensity workouts and more calming activities like yoga or meditation. For others, it might mean taking regular breaks from sitting throughout the day and going for a short walk or stretching. Whatever the case may be, incorporating a variety of physical and restful activities into daily life can help promote overall health and well-being.
