It Pays to Play

It Pays to Play

While engaging in sports is always good for health, it has other benefits that you may not be aware of. http://www.sports-management-degrees.com has created an infographic entitled β€œIt Pays to Play” detailing just how important being active in a sport can be – even into adulthood.
There is no disputing the fact that sports are good for you at any age, however, less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of activity each day. This infographic outlines popular sports, and how each of these may be the key to unlocking a happier, healthier you. Let’s look!
Tennis is a favorite sport for adults, and may actually help alleviate depression, anger, confusion, and tension. It also can help raise self-esteem and instill vigor in participants.
Golf is another popular option, with 9.6% of the population playing. This sport helps individuals learn patience, honesty, and how to rise over adversity.
Team sports are another great option, as they help you work as a team with others, create new friendships, and help teach you how to keep your cool in unfavorable circumstances.
Swimming is also great for your health – both mental and physical. Swimming can teach you to relax, help regulate breathing, and even promote a sense of calm and well-being.
Martial arts can also help participants respect others, control fear and aggression, and even teach one how to get out of a threatening situation.
