What to eat before
Did you know that it is important to energize yourself by eating well
before playing sports, or going for a run? Carbohydrates are the most important
type of nutrient that someone need for energy before a game. You can get these
by eating fruits, vegetables grains such as pasta, spaghetti, or breads. Avoid
food containing high levels of sugar before a game, such as candy bars or pop.
It is good to eat a meal with lots of energy and carbohydrates 2-3 hours
before being active. This gives the food time to digest and prevents stomach

physical activity you can greatly reduce your chances of getting sick? You will also be happier and healthier!

self-esteem, stronger muscles and bones, feeling less stressed and more
relaxed, increased concentration/ better academic score, etc. In other words,
it helps you feel good!

How do I get enough
energy to be physically active?
Many factors influence our energy level during the day: what we eat, how
well and how long we sleep, our stress level, etc. It is important to assess
our lifestyle to identify if there is anything that can be changed. If you feel
too tired to exercise, reassess you sleeping habits. If you feel you do not
have enough time in a day, reassess where you spend your time and evaluate if
there is a way to be more efficient. If you feel you have no energy,
re-evaluate you eating habits.
