Reasons to Love Tennis
For you to fully enjoy the benefits that come with sports such as tennis, you have to be on the court. Below are reasons why you should love tennis, leave your house with a ball and racket, and go to the courts.
1. Playing tennis significantly reduces your chances of an early death
Researchers have found out that light or moderately intense physical activity can substantially reduce the risk of an early death. Tennis has advanced into a spectacular sport that requires very high physical demands. These are seen through the powerful strokes, fast rallies and the long hours of play that the players have to endure. It also goes without saying that as you play, you exercise your heart. The results of this are:
- An increase in the size of the heart
- A low resting rate
- A more forceful pulse that produces a benign murmur as blood flows through your blood vessels
- An increase of blood ejected from your heart with every beat.
All these consequently result in a lowered risk of cardiovascular diseases.
2. It heightens your vigor, optimism, and self-esteem
Thanks to tennis, your level of confidence could increase as you triumph over more opponents and at the same time keeping your weight in check. Playing tennis requires you to be focused on the game and not on any outside distractions. That coupled with the new friends you make reduces stress and increases your self-regard.
3. It has numerous mental benefits.
Being on the tennis court playing against an opponent helps you clear your mind and allows for clear thinking and planning. Due to nature and the rules of the game, you also learn how to exercise self-control. The immense gratification that comes with victory drives you towards success even in your day-to-day life away from the court.
At the court, you are expected to play vigorously, and this attitude could be a positive boost in your business life. Since tennis is all about anticipating the moves of your opponent and reacting accordingly, you may be able to apply the same principle at the office placing you ahead of the pack!
