GENERAL: In my school, we have 45 minutes of physical exercise per week. In your opinion, would an increase to 45 minutes per day in physical activity positively affect the students' ability to concentrate? Why or why not?

The authors do think that 45 minutes a day would positively affect students’ ability to concentrate and perform well on tests and in academic studies. The research supports my point of view. Taking 30 to 45 minutes a day for physical education is positively related to academic performance, and the time taken does not detract from performance. In addition, the time in physical education can enhance health and fitness and help students maintain a healthy body weight.
