Your Happy Heart
The heart is a muscle that pumps oxygen-rich blood to the body and brings oxygen-poor blood back to the heart and lungs. Just like any other muscle, we have to exercise it (or use it) to keep it healthy.
Exercise helps your heart – and your body – stay healthy in a number of ways:
- Helps your body maintain overall good health.
- Helps build and maintain healthy and strong bones and muscles.
- Increases flexibility and aerobic endurance.
Physical activity can also raise your self-esteem, improve your mood, help you sleep better and give you more energy.
Check out the Your Happy Heart lesson from Health Powered Kids to learn more ways to keep your heart happy and healthy!
