Some Reasons to love sports
- Promotes teamwork
Sports, especially those where individuals are grouped definitely needs teamwork. As we know, sports is all about working together, especially since each member of the team has different strengths and weaknesses. This only means that there is a need for them to work together to improve and compensate in order for them to be the best team there is. It’s not only that for even golf, taekwondo and others who compete alone also needs to work together with their trainer well in order for them to be able to give out their best in every game they participate in.
- Sports have rules
Unlike others, it has rules and each rule differs in every sport. This is one thing that makes it more enjoyable. There would be experts who would analyse every situation, especially if they suspect that there is someone who broke the rule. They would also be the one to determine whether something is right or wrong. This only means that the outcome would be fair for all and that there would not be any bias at all.
- Brings out the competitive side of a person
Surely, nobody would want to lose in anything, right? The same goes when it comes to playing sports. As we do not want to disappoint the people around us and has been cheering us on, we would try our hardest whenever we are practicing. Also, we cannot also expect that we would always be winning in every game. However, every time we lose, we learn about the things that we can improve in our self and be a stronger player the next time around. It also helps us deal with defeat and learn how to accept the reality that we are a person after all and we are not perfect beings.
- Serves as an escape from the real world
There are a lot of stressors in our life, may it be in our professional or personal life and so, we often look for something that would allow us to forget about them all even for just a while and something that could cheer us on, especially if we have experienced a tiring and a not so great day. For a lot of people, just being able to play allows them to have a nice escape from their problems and worries in the real world.
- Everything is possible in sports
Sports is something that allows us to believe that impossible things can be possible through hard work. Perhaps, you might have seen games where it seems that the opponent would win the game until the moment when the other team was able to turn the game the last minute. Such instances makes us believe that miracles exists and that one can truly not predict what will happen until the game ends. Because of that, one learns how to grab a hold of the string of hope, may it be in playing a sport or even in real life.
Apart from those 4 reasons, it also allows us to find new companions who would make us feel that we are not alone. Surely, it is capable of making our life a lot more fun, especially if we have someone to share our stories and create memories while engaging in a certain sport.
