What Is The Motivation For Playing Sports?
Posted by Nancy on October 09, 2010
Certainly there must be a myriad of reasons why people gravitate to playing sports. For one thing, it’s a great outlet for the frustration and stress that seems to be a part of daily life for most people. Instead of ranting and raving at family members, co-workers or perhaps even innocent by-standers, one can release pent up aggression on the soccer field, tennis court, basketball court or any other of dozens of sporting opportunities.
Participation in sports also opens up areas in which one can excel and possibly even compete. For those who have no interest in becoming involved in high-intensity, competitive sports, there are numerous possibilities for solo sporting adventures such as cross-country skiing, bicycling, canoeing, swimming and the list goes on and on. There truly is something for everyone when it comes to finding a sport to enjoy.
One of the great pay-backs for time spent on sport activities is that you are able to get a good workout at the same time you are having fun. Participating in sports is a great way to keep your body in shape and your mind focused. Not only that, it provides a great arena for meeting new people and making new friends. If you are someone who wants to keep your body strong, who enjoys challenging yourself and would enjoy the possibility of meeting new people, find a sport that will facilitate those desires and that will add satisfaction and fun to your life.
