Each year , people are slowly becoming more and more obsessed with their bodies and the way they look and how other people look. The first thing that you notice about someone is their physical appearance . Pretty dissapointing but that’s the way things are , there’s no way around it.  Feeling attractive and good about the way you look pumps up your self-confidence and totally changes your mindset.

This another gift exercising gives us and it is the ability to think clearly and be patient during hard times for example you want to achieve a certain goal but you think it’s hard and that you will not be able to do it while in reality there is no such thing . There’s the price you have to pay for something in order to get it or you can watch someone else get it. Most of the time,  some discomfort is often necessary for greater gains, and tolerating that discomfort will help make your vision a reality, one small step at a time.
4) Better Grades and productivity :
Sports and physical activity in general directly impacts the behavior and development of the brain positevely as it boosts concentration and makes your mental skills sharp as you age. However , sportspeople are extremely organised, disciplined and efficient with their time, which are useful skills in the academic side of their lives.
