Staying healthy!

 Winter is a particularly challenging time for our gymnasium students trying to keep their bodies healthy. Regular physical activity is one of the most important things they do for their health. Our gymnasium students agree that being active, regular exercise , outdoor physical activities, balanced diet, work-life balance and positive emotions can prevent the spread of various diseases and strengthen their bodies.

As usual, at the beginning of the year, we started improving our health in a simple way – doing some outdoor activities. On January 20th our gymnasium students and teachers came out to the stadium. There is no better way to have fun than exercising in a group. So primary school teacher Edita helped the students exercise vigorously and friendly in a group. It made everyone happier and brought positive emotions!

We believe that physical activities help us to boost our mood, to stay fit and finally to improve our study skills.
