The question above can be answered with a resounding YES.
Here are 5 ways sports can improve your life:
● Better sleep
Research suggests that exercise and sport triggers chemicals in the brain that can make you feel happier and relaxed.
● A Strong Heart and Improved Lung Function.
Regular sport causes more oxygen to be drawn into the body with carbon monoxide and waste gases expelled. This increases the heart and lung capacity during sport, improving their function and efficiency thereby preventing the risks of heart diseases.
● Increased Confidence.
By training frequently and working towards seasonal goals you can build your confidence and abilities.
● Reduced Stress level
When you are physically active your mind gets a chance to unplug from daily stresses and strains of life.
● Improved Mental Health.
Regular participation in sport and being active can also promote good mental health. This includes improving your mood, enhancing your sense of well-being, reducing anxiety, combating negative emotions and protecting against depression.
Indeed the benefits of sports cannot be overemphasised.
That’s why at Simbed Learners School, we organised an Inter-House Sports competition to help build the love of sports in these young ones.
