“Health is wealth.” Those who have understood its importance will try to keep themselves fit. Apart from a balanced diet, sports are necessary to maintain our health. If we do not play regularly, our body does not develop. Our body becomes weak. We may become a target for many of the diseases. Sports are necessary for maintaining our health and physical fitness.
Sports also inculcate good qualities in us. Involving oneself in competitive sports will encourage healthy competition. Taking up captainship in team games will inculcate leadership qualities. Playing as a team will encourage co-operation among the players.
We may feel that, if we spend our time in playing, when should we study? Here is a solution- Study in the morning as the mind is fresh. After you return home from school, play for about one to two hours as the mind is tired. Then you can study again. So friends, always remember the proverb, “All study and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” This proverb not only applies to Jack but for all of us.
