"The overall objective of these sessions will be to help children stay fit and healthy while pursuing online classes as well as help them to cultivate a sustainable and active lifestyle right from their younger days," the Board said.
Asking all its affiliated schools to circulate the information among parents, students and teaching fraternity, the board also said doing exercise influences the release and uptake of feel good chemicals called endorphins in the brain. Even a short burst of 10 minutes physical activity positively increases mental alertness, energy and mood.
