Why Sports And Extracurricular Activities Are Important In Growing Years?

Studies have shown that exercise increases blood flow to the brain and helps the body build more connections between nerves, leading to increased concentration, enhanced memory, stimulated creativity, and better-developed problem-solving skills. In short, playing sports helps your brain grow faster and helps it work better.

5 reasons why every student should get involved in sports

  1. Improves Concentration.
    Sports help you to focus better in every field of life. When you learn to balance that tiny ball on a table or that shuttle over the court, you can train your brain accordingly to act in everything you do.
  2. Time Management.
    ‘These 70 minutes of your life, final 70 minutes of your game’ When you know the importance of the time, every task is a cake walk. If it comes to studies we all know– Time management is the key to good grades.
  3. No fear of failure.
    Winning and losing is a part of any game that you play and when you learn to accept failure in life- be it studies or games, success comes to a step closer to you because you are not afraid to give it a try.
  4. Increased Confidence level.
    When you are not afraid to lose, your energy level is different from the rest of the crowd, hence helping you feel satiated with self-esteem and then no task is impossible for you.
  5. Sound Mind dwells in a sound body.
    When you are fit, ailments are at a bay that means more attendance and higher grades. When health supports you, you perform better.

Words of motivation: For some students, sports can provide motivation for improved academic performance. Not all athletes are natural students. However, the grade requirements to stay eligible and play the sport they love drives them to overcome obstacles in the classroom and improve performance.

Coming to extra-curricular activities:

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” It’s not just a quote but the very true fact of life. Those who only study and considering their studies loss don’t take part in co-curricular activities are losing a big thing in life.

Firstly, they refrain from becoming a sound personality. Studies are important but other activities play a major role in building the attributes essential for the overall development of a person. For example- team spirit, leadership, management skills, etc

Secondly, you get to meet diverse people and deal with them only when you pro-actively participate in the activities out of your classroom. When you play some sports or participate in inter-school events, you visit other institutions and interact with several people there.

Thirdly, books build your knowledge base but these activities build your base for life. You learn to handle emotions and situations really well. You learn to face failures and setbacks, thereby reducing the depression probability to almost zero.

Last but never the least- Who doesn’t want to become a person who has a variety of talents in this dynamic world?

Look around, it’s never too late to begin. Your school/college life has a lot to offer you apart from the degree. Make the best out it.
