Taking exercise and being active is important for healthy life. Any active games can help you stay fit. Whether you are practising a sport or taking part in playground games, the exercise will keep your body working in a healthy way.
But games and sport exercise your mind as well as your body. You have to think about how to play, the rules and the best tactics. When children start participating in sports at a young age, they are far more likely to stay active as they grow older. Also research suggests that participating in a team sport improves academic performance, leads to better scholastic outcomes, and results in more after school participation. Choosing a few different activities which each have different skill requirements will be more beneficial but just starting with one activity and gradually building upon it will help to trigger endorphins. Sport participation has many mental health benefits including increased focus, greater ability to work with others, and a potential boost of self-confidence.
There’s no shortage of reasons to find a sport or activity to get involved in. Pick one and get moving!
