Last year, I saw a tweet from the one and only Jo Bailey in which Jo shared a slide from one of her recent presentations. On the slide, Jo asked if students are getting the correct D.O.S.E. of physical education.

In this case, D.O.S.E. was an acronym for Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, and Endorphins: a group of neurotransmitters and hormones that are released during exercise and that help cause a whole variety of benefits to one’s health. I loved Jo’s slide so much and asked for her permission to explore creating a visual for my gym that showcased and built on her idea. The result was the D.O.S.E. Poster that I proudly display in my gym to celebrate the mind-body relationship and remind students that exercise and physical activity do a lot more than just getting us sweaty!
