The human body is like any other machine; its needs tune ups in all ways, including mentally, spiritually and physically. When you play a team sport you use the whole body, including your brain as you problem solve while planning and preparing your next move on the court.
Through the experience of moving an object (such as a ball) around within the team environment you are practicing viewing the scene from your mind’s eye, which is a form of mindfulness practice. Mindfulness practices are known throughout the world as a way of improving mental acuity and performance, and are used by many of the world’s top CEOs.
Playing a sport is one way of improving physical endurance, because it is like oiling the parts of the machine and carrying out maintenance on it. If you have a machine that does not get regular maintenance, parts of it can become stiff and problems could arise, which cause it to not work as well as it could. It is the same with the human body.
In a world where we often spend a lot of time sitting at computers, or in front of screens of some sort, our brains can start to become tired and worn out from the monotony. Participating in team sports that require us to think outside of our regular box can assist our brain in getting the workout that it needs to keep it clear and focused when we really need it.
Release of Emotional Traumas
In life, there are some things that cause the human body and mind to go into a state of disease. One of these is emotional traumas that remain within the body without finding some outlet for release. This can affect both mental acuity and physical endurance due to the anxiety that is caused by holding on to emotional trauma. Exercise provides an outlet for releasing and clearing away any of the emotional debris that may build up over the course of the average day in the life of a human.
