I go to the gym every day I like that much. In my point of view the biggest benefits are the feeling of hapiness and joyness we feel, the chance to get out home and chat to people and avoiding diseases like diabetes.

Exercising allows you to lead a healthy life by developing your body's bones and muscles.

Exercise and sport are so important because they have a lot of advantages, when I was in secondary school, I have played voleyball, and after that, handball, and that made me more disciplined and healthy.

ı only like playing handball but I haven't played handball for 3 years. When ı was in secondary school , I changed my school that's why my old handball team was there :( I haven't a handball team now. I wish I had one.

Thank you so much for teaching the important points. I have one thing I'd like to share about benefits of sports. I think sports could encourage others. It's essential especially in such a terrible condition of Covid-19.
According to last year's news, a 10-year-old girl from UK raised about $8,800 by doing 7.1 million "keepy-uppies" — one for every essential worker at NHS. I was inspired by her activity. Don't you think that's amazing?

Sport is something I can't imagine being not a part of my lifestyle. It is a sort of theraphy or relief of stress, which prevents me from being in a negative mood. For exapmle, if I feel down or stressful especially during finals in school, it helps to escape my everyday life. I have to admit tho, sometimes I don't have the motivation to get up and do my workout but due to my regular exercise routine it became a habit for me to push myself at least everyday a little bit to get closer and closer to my goals. In my opinion everybody can find a sport that fits to them. If it's dance or rock climbing, it doesn't matter. As long as you're moving yourself and enjoying the process, that is the most important thing.

I've always felt gravitated towards the individuality and mental strength that implie sports such as running granted I can adjust the pace regarding my own standards. I know for a fact though, that nearly every sport, for the most part, requires in a great deal of psychological endeavor. Running, however, it's demanding in the sense of mindfulness, where it's just your mind against your physical condition and how much you can withstand the tiredness on your way towards your goal, it's a mindset which, is indeed subsequently extrapolated on a daily basis.

Yes, I like playing sport, but the main sport I like to play if I can is running or going to a gym instead of playing football or playing basketball. Before I enter the gym I'm utterly motivated, but this kind is not like the motivation that I have when I leave the gym, because, as the teacher says in the listening, it releases endorphins and this activity (for me) makes me feel very good and focused on the school subjects. Sport helps you to make friends, meet new people and has a lot of benefits, as well.
