Made in partnership with the Always #LikeAGirl campaign.

The victory of the underdog. The last minute penalty shot that wins the tournament. The training montage. Many people love to glorify victory on the field, cheer for teams, and play sports. But should we be obsessed with sports? Are sports as good for us as we make them out to be, or are they just a fun and entertaining pastime? Leah Lagos and Jaspal Ricky Singh show what science has to say on the matter.

Lesson by Leah Lagos and Jaspal Ricky Singh, animation by Kozmonot Animation Studio.

I suffered a depression for years after two broken relationships. Then I decided to buy a road bike and just start cycling to free my mind and get away from my computer. I actually sold my graphics card so I could afford it.
Now I can't stop, it's just ridiculously satisfying and takes you to new heights over and over again.

Anyone overlook the factor of Money? When I was in high school my family was in poverty, and I could barely even afford to get notebooks for class. I wanted to be on sports teams but it cost money to be in a sports team at my high school. You had to have solid transportation to meets, buy uniforms, drinks, have your own equipment etc. Money has always kept me from sports from an early age. That and I was always picked last for teams so I sort of really hate sports as an adult now.

I've been training since I was 7. I love it and I know it's healthy in many different ways, I know it's good for me and that makes me so happy. I wanna feel healthy, strong and confident. And I do. My sport is a part of me. Part of my life. I work out almost every day. It helped me make so many amazing friends and I'm so thankful for that. Without this I wouldn't be who I am now.
Trainings even helped me feel better when I wasn't at my best. NOW PLEASE READ THIS!! ↓↓↓

You are awesome. You have to treat yourself the right way. Any sport is good for you. And there is no sport that you aren't good enough for. Try out for whatever you like. Don't be scared. Just do it. As soon as you can. You'll be healthier. You'll be happier. I promise you. Now I've seen comments like "I can't play sports because of social anxiety" NO. Get over it. You actually have to play sports if you are suffering from something like this. It will help you improve your social skills. You will meet so many nice people there. Please trust me! You deserve it. Your mind and your body deserve it. AND REMEMBER THIS :
You will never FAIL.
You can only LEARN.

Can someone explain me why I can't find the euphoria when running just like others do ? I tried for about 2 weeks everyday to lose some weight, but i actually didn't like running : i'm tired at the end of the session and i want to vomit, i'm so screwed that i can't enjoy my day after.
