With a long weekend and March (April?) Break coming up for many, you may be wondering how you can keep your class on track over the next few weeks.

Exercise, even just simple stretches, can help your class to focus. In this edition of Myles Ahead's curated resources for educators, we look at the impact of exercise on mental health.


  1. The first resource is The brain-changing benefits of exercise, a Ted Talk from Wendy Suzuki which explains the value of exercise to the mind.
  2. Next, in Healthy Minds in Active Bodies (from Here to Help BC), learn specifically how exercise can help the mental health of children and youth.
  3. Finally this exercise: Let's Go and Stretch (from School Mental Health Ontario) is a quick and easy example of the kinds of exercise you can lead for your students.
