There goes a famous proverb as below –

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy ! coined back in year 1659 but I personally believe that the idea conveyed by this proverb is immortal. Sports in its every form has always brought remedy, refreshment, agility and ultimately happiness to humans and animals alike. With all the busy and hectic lifestyle we all have these days, there is little time left for ourselves leave alone recreation or sports. It is a sorry state to see the Internet, WhatsApp, mobile gaming generation has forgotten the merits of playing real sports in their lives. Hence, there is a necessity of embracing sports as a part of our daily lifestyle.

Playing sports does not just give you the ability to perform well in all walks of life, it also demonstrates when you fall, you need to get up and strike harder than before – to push your limits. Michael Jordan once said, “I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Sports are integral for infants, adolescent, youth and old, all alike. Playing sports should be inculcated in one’s daily chores right from the childhood. This would not only enhance the ability of children to remain physically fit, away from ailments and remain healthy but also would help in learning life lessons like leadership, team player, competitiveness, strength, ability to take decisions instantaneously, and so on. Various sports help us learn these life lessons. For example, Kabaddi is an Indian sport which teaches you teamwork, leadership, patience, defense, perseverance and attack while simultaneously helping you strengthen your physical and mental abilities. Any particular sport can be taken up with as per the individual’s aspiration and it will surely bring all the optimistic changes in the individual. A kick in the grass is all what is needed to get started!

Nowadays, sports is not just restricted to the sports we play. Sports, these days, have taken many different forms like dance, acrobatics, gymnastics etc. Dancing, along with being an art form, has also become a sport as performing dance also alleviates an individual’s adrenaline rush. While dancing, you need to be elegant, remember the sequence of steps, be expressive, flexible, and emotional all at the same time. All this makes you vigilant, confident and enduring. 

When the great Muhammad Ali was asked how many sit-ups he did, he responded, “I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. That is when I start counting, because then it really counts. That’s what makes you a champion.” This very attitude comes from adopting a sport and while doing so – refreshing your mind, body and most importantly your soul.

For me sports means the below, 
S – gives you Strength
P – makes you a Performer
O – gives you Opportunity to excel
R – Rejuvenates you 
T – makes you a Team player
S – gives you a good night’s Sleep
So take up a sport now, stick to it, challenge yourself in it and Game ON !
