Physical activity as a solution for anxiety?

by Mathpou on November 2, 2017 - 9:19pm

In our class of sustainable happiness, Anne-Marie and I proposed a project to our school. This project consists of finding a problematic in our school that involves people who are surrounded by stress situations. After many consultations, teachers and students agreed that we do our project before the evaluation week, known as the end of the semester. This period is mainly characterized by anxiety. Studies reveal that while the end of the semester is approaching, students declared that they have a rise of stress. The main reasons are bad time-management, difficulty to concentrate, a lost of motivation, etc. The number of people diagnosed with anxiety has surpassed a number of people diagnosed with depression. All these data are reported in an article written by Joel Brown published in the BU today, an American newspaper. Also, some researches confirmed our hypothesis, which is that doing sports helped us concentrate and thus, giving us more time. As so, doing sports reduces stress, fatigue and it raises alertness and concentration. One of this study was made by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, or ADAA. This association has a goal of reducing anxiety on a short-term and removed it on a long-term, all this with the benefits of physical activities. In short, we hope that our assignment will provide benefits for our people and that they will appreciate and learn news approaches towards sportive activities.

Just like most of what others said, this is relevant to many people which consists of student's feeling anxious or depressed. I myself find sports a remedy, giving me time to forget about the things I feel stressed about and just focus on having fun and improving. Although this can be very pertinent in someone's life, you guys didn't go deep in the details of this project. It's vague and hard to understand what the outcome will be. I have some questions that could help the understanding and thoroughness:
1.How will you promote this encouragement towards playing sports?
2.Will this project be set up as creating teams?
3.Will someone help you fund this project?
4.How much will it cost?
5.If you're someone who needs a distresser, should you feel stress about trying this out?
6.If so, how will you make people feel comfortable getting out of their comfort zone whether or not it's with stress
These are just few things you need to consider. I think that the idea is good but more information about it could help not only us critiques but the people you're encouraging understand the purpose a bit better.
It's a good idea, and I'm interested in seeing the final results:)
