Sports and Fitness
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Being physically fit gives you enough energy to make it through the whole day. Fitness helps you deal with stress. It gives you self-confidence and makes it more likely you will succeed at whatever you attempt. It makes life more fun! Exercise is an important part of being fit. It adds to your total health. Exercise helps you physically, mentally, and socially.
 
2     Physically: Exercise relieves stiffness and helps your coordination. It is good for your heart and lungs. It builds strong muscles and helps your balance. Exercise also helps you keep a healthy weight. NASA scientists have found that for every three days of inactivity, we lose one-fifth of our maximum muscle strength. Muscles must be used to remain healthy.
 
3     Mentally: Exercise makes you feel more energetic. You won't get tired so easily. It can help you think more clearly. It can also help relieve stress. In addition, you can feel proud of what you've accomplished. It can help you have a positive self-image. You will look better and feel better about yourself.
