Response on Physical Activity Campaigns

The increasing level of mind and health deterioration is alarming. Most health administrations have raised concerns on emerging health complication; it is not only among adults but spreading to children, which is attributed to lack of body exercise. The need and alarm from the healthcare givers has necessitated campaigns and awareness programs in schools and education stakeholders on importance of inclusion of the session in school curriculum. While there are positive responses and actions towards the call, there is still a significant portion of the United States and the world in general that despises the need for physical education.

Where we are at

Obesity used to be wholly associated with adults and teenagers after college. While it is prevalent among the adults, the increasing ratio of normal-underweight in children is a serious concern. Food and diet is the most common blame carrier; how about lifestyle and exercise? You drop your children in the morning and pick them up later in the afternoon then leave them to PlayStation the whole evening. All the hours in school are spent on an upright chair; the only activity is probably visiting the washrooms. Proper PE planning is a matter of urgency if we are to sustain another generation on earth.

Key strategies

There are two primary techniques that should form a basis of PE planning to achieve goals in health and in the education sector. First, instructors expected to conduct the PE sessions should be provided with specific guidelines. Learners have to be subjected to relevant activities that combine education and fun. Making an out-of-class activity formal will defeat the purpose. Secondly, the teachers should be trained and supervised on this field. Proper mastery of PE objectives and techniques guarantees proper implementation to learners hence improving quality of physical education.
