Best exercises for school students

Everyone know that exercise is very important for proper physical, mental and social development of an individual. Students should do regular physical exercise as they are in the growing stage and exercise helps to build and shape a perfect height, weight and full development of the body. Students should do physical exercise at least 3-4 times in a week. Here, we are going to talk about the best 5 exercise for teenage students.




Push Ups :
Our Health Tutor mentioned push up as the number 1 exercise for everyone. Push ups are the number 1 body weight exercise where you lift your own body weight using your arms. This exercise primarily builds a stronger chest and also builds triceps, back, shoulder etc. We can say it builds all the muscles of our body.

Running:
Running outside in the nature can be full of fun. Running helps to build stronger legs. It maintains body weight and increase testosterone hormone. Likewise, it helps to maintain blood pressure and maintains a healthy and strong heart. Students can go for running in the morning or in the evening for at least 15 minutes.

Swimming:
Swimming is considered as the best fat cutter exercise. Swimming burns lot of calories. Our Science Tutor says that we can burn around 500 calories in an hour of normal swim. Swimming helps us to lose unnecessary weight and help  us build fit and stronger muscles.



Cycling:
Children love cycling because they feel independent and freedom in exploring the city. Cycling involves fast movement of the leg muscles which increases the heart rate and this helps to increase stamina of the children. A recent study tells that kids who do cycling are found more energetic and outstanding than those who do other exercise like swimming and running. It helps to boost testosterone hormone to maximum.

Dancing:

Dancing is considered as one of the kids favorite exercise. According to Pro Dance Center, regular dance practice can increase your child's flexibility, range of motion, physical strength and stamina. So if you are thinking of hiring a dance tutor, you can hire them from House Tutor, Singapore.

School Life Vs College Life

School life and college life both are very wonderful and unforgettable part of our life. There is still a debate between school life is better vs college life is better. To find out which one is better, we made a research with 400 people. Among those people 376 people reported as school life was the best life and most memorable life. Whereas rest concluded as college life was the most memorable and interesting life. So, finally we can conclude that school life is definitely most interesting and memorable life. We can distinguish life in school with college life.




Differences between school life & college life
  1.  School life is more disciplined than college life.
  2. There are lots of rules in school life like rule of attending school daily, attending school on time, keeping nails and hair short, wearing clean ironed uniform, and lots more but in college life there are fewer rules followed by few students.
  3. Students are forced to come in complete school uniform in school whereas you are free to wear any uniform in college.
  4. In school life, students have to undergo lots of exams taken by tutors like weekly exam, quarterly exam, first terminal, second terminal and many more and students have to attend those exams compulsorily. In college, there is not pressure as much as school to attend internal exam
  5. We have less freedom and have limited pocket-money during school life while there is more freedom and less pocket-money problem in college life.
  6. In school, we have to complete homework daily as well as maintain notes of every subject. In college, the assignments are flexible and need to submit weekly or monthly.
  7. In school, we know names of most student in the classroom but in college life we hardly know names of half students in classroom.



Although there are differences in school and college life, both have given us lots of memories that can not be forgotten. Those memories will always stay in our heart and can wet our eyes whenever we think of our friends. You are the luckiest one if your best friend in school days is still your best friend. If you are still a student, enjoy it, live it, create lots of memories because once your student life is over, it won’t come back.

The Science of Preparing For Exams

One of the most stressful situation for students is exam time. Students are in lot of stress during exam days. Most students neglect their study and try to study during last stage of exam and gets fully stressed and nervous. Hence, they fail or get poor grades. Here, we are going to discuss some scientifically proven ways on how to prepare for exams.

Start Early: The common mistake most student make is that they think they have got lots of time to prepare for their exam. They start studying at last hour. Doing this, they get nervous, stressed and can not fully concentrate in their study. Hence, they fail. Scientist recommends studying from early days. It is better to start preparing for exams a month prior to starting the exam.

Take Proper Rest: Another mistake most students make is that studying late night and not getting proper sleep. Experts recommends to sleep between 6 to 8 hours before appearing in exam. Sleep helps to keep all the information in correct order. Moreover, proper sleep helps brain to think and remember most of the information that we have read a day before exam. According to a research, we have 60% retention rate when we read just one day before appearing in exam.

Eat well and Exercise: The first thing you can do yourself a favor is to eat healthy. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Include blueberries, salmon, almonds, nuts, eggs, whole grains, broccoli, dark chocolate etc in your diet as it helps to boost brain memory and helps brain to function well. Similarly, doing physical exercise like running, walking, skipping, swimming, cycling etc are also important as it helps to keep stress away and increase memory power. 

Make Good Notes: Making notes will be very helpful to prepare for exams. While reading a lesson, student should point out the  main points in a note. Similarly, making flash cards and sticky notes and highlighting the main points of information in the book with help a lot for preparing for your exam.

Get Help From a Tutor: This is a very easy and effective way to prepare for exams. Tutors are professional, skilled and experienced in dealing with the students. A recent survey shows that student who hired a private tutor did well in exams than those who did self studies. You must be careful in hiring tutors. Always hire a skilled and experienced tutors because they use psychology to teach according to the perception of the student. You can hire tutors from tuition agency. One of the most popular tuition agency in Singapore is House Tutor.
 


Revise Everything Before Exam: We keep learning new things and keep forgetting old. That is why revising everything that we have studied from time to time is very necessary. Remember to revise everything a day before appearing in exam.

Stay Away From Stress: Exam time is pressure time. Students are at stress during it. If there is a question you can not answer, don't panic. Keep calm. Take a deep breathe and go with the questions you can answer first. At last answer the question you don't know. Try to answer as much as you can. Don’t worry at all, all the hard labor you have done will pay you with  good result.
