38. Establish "Active" break times

How long do you have student sit in their chair per class? If you have a 40 min class, you should have your students stand up and move about at least one time for more optimal cognition. Even the slightest exercise and some sort of stretching can make a big difference in cognitive performance. If you have a 90 min class, this active break time should happen at least twice. Human bodies were not designed to sit and work diligently on a single problem all day long. While we have trained ourselves to do so, it is far from what we are designed to do, and therefore it is not optimal. Incorporating movement into the daily learning activities is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. It give the body its active break time without leaving the studies behind.

Q. Would it be difficult to plan activities that have your students stand up and/or move around every 20 minutes or so? Think of creative ways of doing this!
