Sports. Such and interesting pass time! Keeps you healthy, rejuvenates your mind, a good physical exertion!
After a long stretch of just academics, all that stress, assignments, tutorials, an endless list! Taking so much stress, it's necessary to release it too! What better than a fest where you can play your favorite sport, compete with friends and acquaintances alike!
Apart from the fun part, here are some more benefits (fun and other) :
#1. Health benefits:
Sitting and doing nothing (well, almost!) Our body needs more than just sleep to function. A bit of physical exertion is needed to keep the joints functional. A sports fest provides just that! The variety of sports keeps the muscles working and helps maintain health.
#2. Competitive spirit:
As students, it's in our nature to be competitive with each other. But, why only showcase our spirit only in academics? Showing an equivalent competition in sports is much more fun than showing that trait in studies. A healthy competition not only makes the games more fun, but they also inspire one to perform better.
#3. Value of Teamwork:
In engineering, it is extremely important to know how to work together to ensure the success of your project. It is necessary to know the strengths and weaknesses of each of your team member and work towards it, not only to benefit yourself, but to take your whole team forward and towards the goal with you. Sports teaches us just that! Playing team games makes one know their team members and hence, make new friends!
#4. Showcase talent:
When you have the talent, why keep it hidden?! The academic results and the competition certificates might show off your brains. But to show off your strength, no better option than sports. And, apart from that, it might also inspire the spectators to start working towards their bodies and motivate them to remain fit!
#5. Handling Pressure:
We have to handle multiple things at a time and are expected to excel at everything, thus increasing pressure. Sports, apart from the fact that they help release pressure, they also teach how to handle pressure and come out brighter and better than before. Sports teaches us that no matter what, given that you have the determination, you can exceed and excel in all the things you put your heart to.
These are just some of the countless benefits of sports. We might not get time to enjoy them each day. So, might as well take the opportunity as it comes! So, why not attend the sports day which promises all of this and more!
