TheImportance of Doing Exercises
There is a saying that never too old to learn and, similarly, I want to say that never too old to do exercises. Doing exercises is really necessary for everyone and we’d better take some time to do exercises every day.
General speaking, doing exercises appropriately every day is definitely good for our health. For one thing, doing exercises properly is a good way to building our body and accelerate our blood circulation. For example, to do sit-up every day can practice our waist. For another, doing exercises is also a good method to keep our mind healthy because doing exercises can broaden our mind and release our stress to a large extent. For example, we would feel better if we do some exercises after working for a long time.
In addition, doing exercises can make our mind be more active. That is why so many people choose to do exercises when they cannot come up with new ideas.
All in all, doing exercises is absolute necessary. If you say that you are too busy to run, to take some deep breath or expand your chest every day would be better than do nothing.
It seems that nowadays international events, such as the Olympic Games and the World (FIFA) Cup, are particularly motivating for children to take up sports in many countries. To be fair, while spending money on preparing elite competitors to shine on the international stage is worthwhile, a country ought not to ignore an investment strategy that could help every child to cultivate a passion for doing exercise from an early age. The idea is not making a medal winner out of every child but to let the child pursue something that is rewarding, both physically and mentally, in later life.
On the one hand, playing games, besides being fun, helps a child to stay physically fit. Usually small children are energetic, so playing sports is like energy put to good use; so much so, any investment on the part of the government in this respect is like money put to good use. Because physical exercise builds the healthy body, we should have a special budget to upgrade our kids' physical fitness. If not, we will be raising an obese and unfit generation. That is to say, engaging in different kinds of sporting activities is essential to a child's physical development in different ways, all translating into overall physical benefits. For example, games that involve running, kicking or throwing a ball strengthen the arms and legs, and swimming provides a full body workout, and so on.
On the other hand, researches say that children who play sports tend to be in a mentally happier state of mind than those who do not. And probably there is no match to that kind of mental happiness which this brings. The same reports explain that sports are a form of exercise that generates what is called 'happiness molecules' in the body, thus restoring the mental health by easing stress and releasing emotions. In view of this, public facilities like sports parks should be timely built and sufficiently funded at as many key destinations as possible in order to ensure the younger generation's mental health. To put it in another way, by strengthening their muscles and bones for a sound body, children could also benefit greatly from playing sports for a positive mind. With that positive mentality, it is very likely that those kids who regularly play sports also fare well in academics at school.
Although it is not necessary to make every child a sport hero or a professional football star for the next generation, it must be a country's responsibility to create a sporting environment for their physical and mental wellbeing. However important it is to foster national pride and unity through preparing our competitors in international events, we cannot afford not to motivate our kids to play sports here and now. So, should strictly money be the issue, some of today's children who are good enough in sports can win Olympic medals, or even play for money.
