How playing sports benefits your body ... and your brain - Leah Lagos and Jaspal Ricky Singh 5

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.

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.

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.
