Everybody has a sport they love to play, some people play it because they love the competition while others play it just for the fun of it. Sports have been around for thousands of years, in fact they’ve started in pre historic time periods. But it’s only in the 1980’s and 1990’s that scientist decided to take a look at the benefits of sports and physical activity. An individual taking part in a sport team or any sports event can lead them to prevent chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, depression and bone disease (osteoporosis). All these dieses can be prevented just by enjoying the fun of playing a sport which is great!
Sports can help starting at a young age and also as you grow up to be an adult. When you’re young and participate in sports, you are more likely to grow strong healthy bones, develop good lung function and also help with the movement of your muscles while executing an act. When you grow up as an adult, the benefits of sports are that they help your body evolve in a healthy manner and give you good quality of life such as independence. For women who participate in any type of physical activity, the benefits are strengthen their bones to help prevent osteoporosis and make them stronger to prevent any type of fractures. Sports don’t only have positives on body and mental health but self-esteem. The action of being part of a physical activity helps an individual in a physiological cognitive thinking as well. To help the brain develop and learn, which eventually helps that person succeed academically and in any other occupation they have.
I personally believe that this article is a strong one, they facts given are said to be proven by scientific evidence and the article is posted on a good sports site that has been running for ten years. And what they talk about is 100% true. Staying active and participating in sports and physical activity is so important because it helps our bodies stay healthy and our brains. And if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy playing sports, you can always find an alternative to stay active to allow your body and brain grow a healthy life style. When were young we do a lot of things that effects our bodies in negative ways and it’s latter on in the future that we realize it’s too late to start getting active.
