Children who walk or cycle to school rather than being driven by their parents have an increased power of concentration, and the effect of this ‘exercise’ lasts all morning. If you’re in the habit of driving your children to school, you’re not really doing them much of a favour. Rather, you should let them transport themselves to school, because that will make them concentrate better at school. This is one of the main conclusions of a comprehensive Danish project – the ‘Mass Experiment 2012’ – which set out to examine the link between diet, exercise and the power of concentration.
