It is well said that a sound mind dwells in a sound body and this famous quotation demonstrates the close link between physical exercise, mental equilibrium and the ability to enjoy life. In search of money and fame, many of us ignore the most precious wealth of our life that is ‘Health’. Physical education plays a pivotal role in the present system of education. The importance of sports and games in school encompasses more than just the benefit of physical activity. Games and sports are an integral part of a student’s life.
A student should study hard to be successful in competitive examinations. But, he should also play games and sports to enjoy the health and vigour of life. Being a student one gets tired of daily routine of hectic work and needs recreation as well which is best attained in the form of sports.
Only education does not fulfill the criteria of being well organised social member of the society. Sports are very important for the overall growth of students, as during physical activity in the form of games and sports, they learn and built many abilities like decision making, team work, discipline, hard work, self esteem and others. Importance of sports cannot be denied or overlooked. Those students who are habitual of taking part in any type of sports are best at their studies and other personal life activities as well. Sports should be made compulsory at the school and college level so that the students remain all time healthy and fit.
The parents should also motivate their wards to take active participation in the physical activities for the overall well being and development of body, mind and spirit.
It is high time now that all the schools and colleges should give due consideration to the physical education so that the students remain physically fit and mentally sharp throughout their lives.
