New research from the UK finds that children who walk to school have better concentration and may have a reduced need for ADHD medication.

To finds this, more than 2,500-students were surveyed, and researchers say 80-percent of those who reported walking to school reported feeling calmer and more able to concentrate when they got there. The kids who walked also said they felt healthier and looked better. One researcher explains, saying, “Physical activity improves brain elasticity, which allows children to learn. Exercise also releases endorphins, which make you more relaxed.”
