Many of us live close enough to our schools or workplaces that walking or riding a bike is a practical means of transportation. According to a Danish study from 2012, kids who walked or biked to school performed better on tasks requiring concentration than those who were driven to school or took public transit. On top of that incredible benefit, the researchers found that the lift in concentration lasts for about four hours into the school day. Other benefits of biking to school include a stronger connection to the community, a taste of independence, numerous health benefits, family bonding time and of course – exercise.
Some studies show that physical activity can reduce your risk for depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Walking or commuting by bicycle is satisfying, rewarding, and fun!
