Physical Fitness

When most adults think about exercise, they imagine working out in the gym on a treadmill or lifting weights.
But for kids at Bahay Aurora, exercise simply means playing and being physically active.
Kids do exercise when they play baskeball and other sports,running,relays,riding bicycle or when playing tag like a traditional games like luksong tinik,patintero and other kinds of activities.
Every afternoon,children gathered together with staffs and volunteers and Mrs.Arleen Smidstra lead in the daily exercise. She once again promote and introduced the good benefits of exercise to our health aside from eating healthy food.

This Physical health education builds childrens knowledge, skills, and positive attitudes about health. It also teaches about physical, mental,
emotional and social health. It motivates kids to improve and maintain their health, prevent disease, and reduce risky behaviors.

This kind of challenge is to help children de¬velop active, positive lifestyles. In¬tegrating knowledge and activity will help convince children that exercise is important to their well-being and increase the chance that physical activity will be¬come a permanent part of their daily lives.
Once children begin to regularly incorporate fitness into their experience, they are more likely to modify other health factors to complement their healthy lifestyles. Besides enjoying the health benefits of regular exercise, kids who are physically fit sleep better and are better able to handle physical and
emotional challenges. Exercise and Physical
