Team sports are not just for kids and professional athletes. In fact, adult sports leagues are becoming more popular around the country, because they provide an outlet for physical activity and socialization. If you are considering joining an adult sports team, these benefits may give you some extra motivation to sign up for the New Year.
A fun way to stay fit
Going to the gym every day may not be appealing, but physical activity is important for good health. When you exercise regularly on the basketball court or soccer field, you can manage your weight effectively, keep your bones strong, improve your heart health and even boost your memory and focus. Adults should get at least two hours of moderate aerobic exercise each week, and it is much more fun to get this activity in a thriving competitive environment rather than on an exercise bike or treadmill.
As an adult, you may become isolated in your routine, so a sports league may be a nice change of pace for your social life. You can easily meet new people and have a fun weeknight destination to break up the monotony of the work week.
Stress relieving activities
Friendly competition and physical activity can be a great stress reliever. As your stress melts away on the field, you might get better sleep at night and feel less tense in your daily activities.
