Experts say that practicing sports releases pressure, since the tired body releases hormones that relax us and make us feel better. I am used to swimming before exams. After swimming, I find that I totally relax and loose anxiety and that helps me a lot doing well in exams and getting high grades.
Moreover, students need good health. For example, it is difficult for non athletic students to walk fast from one side of the campus to the other to catch up their classes and even if they could, they would reach classes but exhausted and so can not pay attention to lectures.
Playing sports and games teaches many skills that are needed in this tough life. For example, competing with others is growing as a habit, without which no one would succeed. Exercises teach us how to accept defeat, and how to try again and again till we achieve our gods.
Moreover, students can make their career in sports. Many athletes like Sachin Tendulakar, PT Usha, Baichung Bhutia, etc. gained fame in sports.
Also, playing games and sports has important advantages in a way that it socializes our lives. For example, when people intend to play basketball, they do it in groups. That will give them team spirit and a chance to identify each other very well and make friendships and relationships.
And so, it is not true that sports and games do not have advantages for adults, since they decrease the stress, teach us skills that we need, satisfy us, and socialize our lives. And to get the most of the benefits, they should be practiced daily.
Asian Games are going to be held in 2010 in our country. It will provide space and opportunities to our players. It will also help in developing our country as well as provide economic growth to our country.
