There is no doubt that sport is good for you, both physically and mentally. There is something special about playing and participating in sport. What greater gift can you give than introducing someone into sport?
Benefits of playing sports
If you are a parent of young children it is natural to want to look after their health and welfare. Get them interested in sport and you will be providing them with a lifetime of healthy entertainment and sporting activity.
Just consider the benefits:
• increases motor skills
• improves energy levels
• builds strength and stamina
• stimulates the brain
• relieves stress
• builds character.
And you are never too old to play sport
It is not only children that can benefit from a new sport. It is just as important for adults to have a social life and regular exercise. Why not join a sports club or local activity center where you can meet like-minded people, and make some new friends.
There is no minimum standard required to play any sport, you just need the motivation to join in. You will find that most sports clubs and centers have sessions geared towards beginners. It might be slightly nerve racking to begin with, but you will also find it an exciting prospect to be taking up a new challenge.
You will find that training courses are carefully tailored to the individual talents of those taking part. In my experience, coaching staff in all sports like nothing better than helping new starters to fall in love with their favorite sport and will help and encourage you all the way. You can have fantastic fun, maintain a good social life, and sport your way to health and fitness at the same time.
Sport is good for you even in your own backyard or garden
If you have your own sports nets and equipment, you can even play and practice sports at home such as tennis, badminton, soccer, baseball and golf to hone your new found sporting skills. And it goes without saying, there is nothing children like better than spending time playing with their parents.
For me, playing sport is about quality of life. I know of nothing else that will make you feel so good in body and mind than playing sport. So, get involved with sport, help yourself and your family to a better, and perhaps longer life.
