Exercise is  crucial in everyday life. Staying fit keeps both your body and mind healthy. Physical activity reduces the risk of developing several diseases like type diabetes, cancer, and even cardiovascular disease. According to Better Health it asserts “Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits…regular activity can improve your quality of life.” Exercising even for just 30 minutes can lead to a healthier state of mind. Better health also suggests that “Exercise may block negative thoughts or distract you from daily worries… Exercise may also change levels of chemicals in your brain, such as serotonin, endorphins and stress hormones.” Exercise can help balance your mental state and help clear your mind. You are able to basically reset your mind and recharge your mental battery.

Daily exercise is extremely beneficial and can improve your health in the future. Studies have shown that regular activity reduces your risks for heart attacks, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even your proneness to fall. Exercise will also allow you to manage your weight, strengthen your muscles and bones, and improve your energy or improve your mood. Ways you can improve your daily exercise can be as simple as walking around your neighborhood, or going for small runs that slowly build up to something more. 

Searching for people to interview, I interviewed fellow lady Nole, Armitha Gagganapally is part of the Seminole golf and tennis team. She says “Exercise helps relieve stress and anxiety. For tennis I go on runs and bike to build up cardio, and sometimes I will lift weights to build up muscle on my arms.” Exercise acts as an outlet for many students here at Seminole. It’s a way to not only stay fit but work out the pent-up emotion that many students bear.  I also got the chance to speak with Kailynn Dupre who is on the Seminole Volleyball team, she says “we do 4 hours of practice every day, and we do weight training for like an hour.” Sports take commitment and effort. To succeed you must dedicate yourself in order to rise to the challenge.  Another fellow Seminole volleyball player, Oliva Casservik says “It’s important to build strength and build stamina. It helps you in the long run.” Speaking to different athletes of different sports I can see how important the need to exercise is. It prepares you for your season which in turn prepares you for success.

 Exercise has become a very essential part in building yourself up enough to make a sports team here at Seminole. Sports require both physical and mental strength, in order to build them up strong you must practice and work out over long periods of time. By consistently  working out and building up your muscles and working both your heart and lungs, you allow your body to adjust easier to the strenuous pressures and difficulties of your sport. At Seminole we take our sports very seriously,but at the same time support one another.  Every sport is different and requires different strength. This can range from the strength and endurance needed for football or soccer, to the precision and arm strength needed for bowling or archery. Each sport is different and unique in their own ways.  Allowing  many of the students a chance to find a sport activity fitting for them that would be both fun and physical. Sports are students’ escape from school that benefits them physically by keeping them active and in shape. Sports also show the versatility of a student who is both academically strong as well as physically.
