WHY PLAYING SPORTS IS IMPORTANT FOR THE YOUTH

There are all kinds of sporting activities in the world. Indoor sports include chess, badminton, basketball, boxing, bowling, table tennis, etc. Outdoor sports on the other hand include rock climbing, baseball, soccer/football, etc. Both kinds have their advantages and specific traits.

One does not have to be a professional to play a sport. They do not have the monopoly over playing sports. One should always participate in whatever sports they can and want to for the holistic growth of an individual. Sports should be encouraged amongst everyone in the country and especially in children to create a strong foundation for them.

 

A few very specific benefits are:

 

1.     IMPROVEMENT IN PHYSICAL HEALTH

 



 

This is a very obvious benefit. Playing most forms of sports involves a lot of physical activity and usage of the strength of one’s body. Thus, one not only increases one’s stamina but also builds the core strength of the body. Players of very physically active sports often develop extra veins circulating the heart which provide extra benefits to the players in their old ages in dealing with heart issues and blockages in it. Sports players are also able to sleep better and faster.

 

2.      IMPROVEMENT IN MENTAL HEALTH


 

Players of all forms of sports require a lot of focus and attention to detail. Players also need to be farsighted in their tactics and moves. This when made a habit makes it easier for the players to deal with their mental health issues. The reason being that players have trained their brain to target a problem or a goal and find solutions to them by finding rational methods to achieve them. We tend to become calmer and in control of our emotions because not only do we get an outlet for pent up frustrations but we also learn to navigate through debilitating pressures.

 

3.     INCENTIVES IN JOBS

 


 

There is an entire plethora of jobs available to sports persons. They can become teachers, professional coaches & instructors, commentators, critics and even research analysts. If they have sufficient knowledge of their sport it's not difficult to land a job in this field. Some jobs even have special degrees and diplomas to get an education in them. Infact, the Government of India has special scholarships and positions to offer the sports persons who perform very well at the national level. Some very imminent sports persons like Mr. Kapil Dev and Mr. Mahendra Singh Dhoni even got honoured with ranks in the armed forces.

 

4.      RESPECT IN THE SOCIETY

 


 

The society of India has a special place in their heart for people who do well in their lives and are successful in their careers. Any sports person who is able to get good results in their competitions is seen as successful and accomplished. Not just that, sports persons have a very strong personality and confidence which they develop with time and that leaves a very deep and positive impression on the people. Especially famous sports persons like Mary Kom become heroes to the society because of their performances at the international levels. They make the country proud and win a very high respect in the society.

 

5.     BETTER MATRIMONIAL ASPECTS


 

 

Sports persons develop a very strong sense of teamwork within themselves because of which they are believed to be great partners. Also, when someone makes a name for themselves in the hall of fame of the sport, everyone believes that he/she will always be economically sound which is why their matrimonial demands are pretty high.

 

6.     BUILD UP OF SPIRIT AND CHARACTER

 


 

Sports persons develop a strong resilience and a will to try to the last moment. They not only have a spirit to relentlessly put efforts into a goal but also understand how to deal with loss. Sports persons develop grace in their character to not get overwhelmed when they are lucky enough to experience a chain of victories and also not to give up when they do not win. They learn to understand the difference between competitors and rivals. This is called sportsman spirit. Development of sportsman spirit is essential for the youth to deal with their future struggles.

 

7.     TEAM SPIRIT

 


 

Sports inculcate a spirit of team spirit in the youth which is very important for them to learn how to work in a corporate culture. We cannot avoid ever working in teams no matter what field you are in. It is only beneficial for the youth to learn how to do that because it will only work in the development and progress of the country.

 

8.     BETTER RESULTS TO THERAPY

 


 

 

Regular exercise of any type is very important for anyone that faces cardiological issues. Many people who have played sports in their youth have shown better results to therapy and medicines when they face any health issues related to their heart and blood pressure. Many people face these issues in old ages and it has been widely proven that people who have done sports in their youth are able to deal with them better.

 

9.     DEVELOP BETTER REFLEXES

 


 

People who play sports develop better reflexes because of their everyday or regular training given to them. It will only help the people in future situations when reflexes are needed in dangerous situations. It also develops a better presence of mind in general in studies and practical experiences.

 

10.SAVE FROM THESE NEGATIVE HABITS

 


 

Something very important that is a direct consequence of playing sports is that people stay away from alcohol, smoking and any other drugs in general. These drugs negatively affect the performance while playing so this vulnerable section of the society is saved from these negative habits.

 

11.LEADERSHIP SKILLS

 


 

Playing sports also develops leadership skills in the youth. They are able to develop very efficient and fast decision making making skills because there are no other options available to them when they are in a game.

 

In conclusion, there are many aspects because of which sports should be a part of everyone's life. Be it physical health, mental health or development of spirit. Sports persons have a very strong will to take risks and this helps in developing a strong, innovative and confident entrepreneur.
