Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ tweeted today that he has spoken to Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports, Kiren Rijiju for a collaboration with CBSE to provide students live sessions by experts covering topics like Basic Exercises, Nutrition, Yoga & Meditation, boosting immunity etc.
Asking all its affiliated schools to circulate the information among parents, students and teaching fraternity, the board also said doing exercise influences the release and uptake of feel-good chemicals called endorphins in the brain. Even a short burst of 10 minutes physical activity positively increases mental alertness, energy and mood.
