Participating in regular physical activity contributes to your overall physical and mental wellbeing.

This article will show you the various ways in which sports can make you healthier.

Effects of Sports on Health

Physical activity works to improve your emotional wellbeing (e.g. reducing anxiety, stress, fatigue, etc.), self esteem, physical wellbeing (e.g. chronic pain, heart problems, etc.), and perceived wellbeing (e.g. quality of life, optimism, etc.).


Being physically active also considerably contributes to a better quality of sleep and helps to fight insomnia.
