Two Energetic Hobbies For the Benefit of Your Physical, Mental Emotional Wellbeing

People enjoy being active whether it be skipping in your back yard or snow boarding down some amazing slope on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It gives them an interest, whether it by oneself or with other people and keeps your body healthy. So what are two energetic hobbies that benefit you physical and emotional well being?

1. Sport:

Playing a sport is great for your fitness, competition and socialising, whether it be a big team sport like rugby or netball or more on an individual sport like tennis or squash. There are many sports to choose from as you have seen in the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. The choice will be narrowed down by what is available where you live and of course your interest of big team sports or the more individual type ones. Let’s take golf as an example. You can play this game competing for yourself or you can join up with others and be part of a team e.g. four players. It is a great sport for being outside and getting the fresh air, playing a round of 18 holes with a group of friends and then have a social chat afterwards at the club rooms. You can also have a great time travelling the many golf courses of the world. There is nothing like a tropical golf game in the sun!!

2. Exercising:

How does a dance class followed by a sudoku sound? These are two ways you can exercise your body. The first exercises your muscles and and helps with your fitness and the second exercises your brain and helps stimulate the mind. Exercising is important as part of your overall health and emotional well being.

People feel good after physical exercise and finds it helps with overall energy levels. There are many ways to exercise from doing the house work, walk or run around the block, weights and aerobics at the gym and any form of dance and sport.

People also feel fantastic and a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a puzzle, as in sudoku. There are also various other ways to stimulate the mind including playing memory games with the kids. It is great to relax in the bath or bed with a puzzle or two as an alternative to reading a novel. And what is better than a session of physical exercise followed by a session of mental exercise?

So here you have it, the choice is yours. All you need to do is decide on a sport, keep fit for it and then do some brain games for the benefit of your mind.
