Playing Is a More Enjoyable Way to Be Healthy

By Tom Herrin

Even for the best of us, the daily grind of exercising can be more than a little gruesome.  You may sometimes find yourself watching the clock tick along as you mark the time.  Unless you are really into the activity, your greatest motivation may be simply to finish.  While it may make you feel good, it may be something you just want to get behind you.  This may be one of the reasons lifetime sports have been introduced into the physical education programs of many schools nationwide.  If we can develop some interests in some of these sports, we may find ourselves much more driven to participate.  Let's face it, most of us enjoy at least a little competition.  With a little planning, you will likely be able to get some great benefits.

Identify Your Weaknesses

We all have some sort of physical weaknesses.  Some are more obvious than others.  Determining which areas we may be vulnerable can help us to decide on the best sport for us.  We can at least know which ones to avoid.  It may be helpful to make a list of anything that is a potential problem and stay away from them.  Once you do this, you can focus on the activities that suit you best.

What Is Your Target Goal?

Beginning your participation in a sport is not much different from just regular exercise in some ways.  For instance, you will need to establish what your expectations will be.  Many people suggest that you try for 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day on at least five days per week.  This should help to burn calories, build stamina, and still provide for some kind of a break.  It is well known that any kind of physical activity done for too many days in a row may become counterproductive.  

The Sky Truly Is the Limit

When you begin searching for that right sport for you, leave no stone unturned.  If you want milder activities, there is always golf or bowling.  If you want to rev it up just a bit, you may choose tennis or bike riding.  There are also running clubs and leagues of all kinds that offer competitive team sports.  Some of these include basketball, soccer, softball, and many others.  If you want to exercise and take the boredom out of it, there are lots of options.
