Continue reading to find out what you need to pay attention to for each of these categories.
How to Stay Fit – Rest
When was the last time you rested? Did you just take a break, or did you come straight from school? Rest is important for your body to recover. If you don't get enough rest, it will be difficult for you to concentrate and move your body in activities like playing soccer, climbing, or participating in class.
For your body, sleep is particularly important for recovery. As a child, you need about ten hours of sleep a night. Adults usually need less. However, this can vary from person to person. But your body doesn't just recover while sleeping. Your hobbies or alone time can also be refreshing, for example.
How to Stay Fit – Nutrition
Your body also regains strength through nutrition, not just rest. Eating right is just as important as resting. If you eat healthy and the right amounts, your body has the energy it needs to grow and stay healthy. In addition, it's good to eat a varied diet and have different foods on your plate every day.
How to Stay Fit – Hygiene
This includes washing yourself, brushing your teeth, caring for your hair, and nails. You can easily wash your face and hands at the sink. Especially before eating, as soon as you get home, or after using the toilet. Always wash your hands with soap. Handwashing is especially essential after touching animals or plants, even if they are your pets! You should definitely brush your teeth in the morning and at night.
How to Stay Fit – Exercise
Exercise is also important to keep you fit and healthy. Bring your heart rate up every day. How do you like to move—playing outside with your friends, doing sports, or riding your bike?
It's also great if you move around during the school day. Maybe your class has extra movement breaks, or you use the break and gym class for lots of exercise. In the picture, you can see a few sample exercises to try out with enough space—they're also great for rainy days. These exercises can help train your fitness in elementary school, but be careful: the exercises are not that easy.
1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and make sure there is enough space in front of and behind you. Raise your arms. Now circle one arm forward and the other back. This is not that easy and you have to concentrate well. Take your time and do it slowly.
2. Stand on one leg. Lift the other leg and bend it. Your foot now touches either your thigh or your calf. If you can already balance well, then try to raise your arms over your head. Let your hands touch each other.

"But what does Hannah need to feel as good as Mio the cat? Let's learn about "How to Keep Our Bodies Fit!" There are four words that teach us what is important for our bodies. Remember them well! The first word is: rest. As children, we need about ten hours of sleep a night. But rest is much more than just sleeping. Our hobbies, or some quiet, alone time, like painting, crafting or playing by ourselves, can help our bodies recover. Without enough rest, we can't put in the effort and show what we can do! The second important word is: nutrition, or the food and drink we put into our bodies. Our bodies need healthy food to grow and stay fit. Plus, we need to eat well to do all the great things we want to do during the day. Therefore, we should eat breakfast in the morning before school. It's good to eat different things all the time; it gives our bodies variety. Sometimes it's especially nice to have a quiet lunch or dinner together with family where we tell each other the exciting things from the day. The third word is: hygiene, or keeping our bodies clean. In order to feel good and stay healthy, we need to wash ourselves often, from top to bottom. We should always wash our hands before eating, as soon as we arrive home, and after using the bathroom. We should also wash our hands after touching plants or animals, even if they are our pets! Brushing our teeth in the morning and at night is also part of keeping our bodies clean. Keeping our bodies clean let's us stay healthy! The fourth word is a lot of fun; it's exercise! Whether playing outside with friends, during sports, or riding bikes, movement is healthy. Getting our hearts pumping every day is not only fun but also keeps us fit. Can you remember the four words? Let's review them together! Rest, Nutrition, Hygiene, and Exercise!
