Most of us college students take sports for granted. We stay ignorant of the fact that these sports can create future success paths.
For those who had passions and great skills in some of the sports, then chose to drop them when they came to college, it’s even more unfortunate because they are losing more than they can afford to lose.
So, before you graduate then look back into your past and wish you had taken sports seriously, go through these several reasons why you should take sports in college.
1. Build relationships and connections:
When people who share a common passion come together as a team to better each other, strong bonds are created. Sports connect such people who develop deep friendships and these connections open doors for each other in the future.
Humans are social beings and spending so much time together having fun is what we desire most. In addition, what if the person of your dreams, the one you want to spend your life with was your sports enthusiast, wouldn’t it be the best coincidence ever?
2. Be fit.
We sometimes get worried when told we are told as we mature, we will look plump and unfit like most adults. That’s a reality unless you make the right decision now. As we grow, we gradually stop caring about how we look because we begin to settle and raise families.
This is why most adults lose fitness and even though they seem not to get worried, they don’t like being unfit. Taking sports enables you to remain fit for the most part of your early adulthood and if you take them seriously you will care about fitness for life. As a result, you will live healthy strong and happier.
3. Enjoy being a student.
If you spend a larger percentage of the day doing things you love, you are bound to live an awesome life. Sports are almost always fun, apart from injuries maybe. They are very instrumental in getting rid of stress and rejuvenating your young spirit.
Guys have turned to drugs that are both expensive and detrimental, to rid stress yet they fail to realize that sports, besides being cheap, make life much more enjoyable. Choose sports and your college life will be worth remembering.
4. Make money.
If you didn’t know you could make money from sports, well now you know. Varsity teams are paid by the respective institutions to represent them in sports competitions. In addition, if you win in these competitions, you are given prizes and most come in terms of money.
