Importance of Sports to Health

Playing sports can make you live longer, think clearer, react faster, lose weight and prevent diseases with little to no side effects. There's no age limit as to when you can start playing, and there's overwhelming scientific evidence guaranteeing it works. Playing sports is potent medicine that doesn't require a prescription.

Heart Health

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular diseases were the cause of 34.6 percent of all deaths in the U.S. According to the AHA's latest guidelines, all healthy adults should get at least 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week. You can split this up into two separate 15 minutes exercises or do it all at once. Swimming a few laps in the pool or playing tennis regularly with a friend are among the many ways to be active in sports and keep your heart healthy.
