Exercise – Good for the Mind

April is National Autism Awareness Month. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) describes a group of neurodevelopmental disorders. The goal of the month designation is to increase awareness about autism itself, as well as anything relating to the condition. That includes understanding methods that can be used to help those dealing with autism. One such method is exercise.

 

According to autism.com, studies show that vigorous exercise at least 20 minutes in length, 3-4 times per week, can help decrease hyperactive or destructive behaviors. It also helps stave off unhealthy weight gain that can creep in with a sedentary lifestyle. If a loved one in your life is living with autism, healthy options are available to help.

 

Anyone seeking an activity that will get the blood pumping, the mind engaged and offer good clean fun doesn’t have to look any further. Master Shim’s World Class Tae Kwon Do may be the perfect physical exercise outlet for all ages.
