Sports can have a significant positive impact on someone’s well-being. Not only do sports reduce stress, they also give people ways to bond and practice collaboration, while reaping the physical and mental health benefits of exercising. Want a burst of happiness? You wish you could put your anxiety at bay? You are longing for quality sleep? It’s time to get moving!
I have had the chance to be surrounded by active and dynamic people who practice regular physical activity. Some are interested in mainstream sports such as tennis, soccer or basketball; While others dare to think outside the box and pick sports such as rock-climbing, kitesurfing or even free-skiing. I belong to this second category, and have always been attracted to crazy sports. I started with waterskiing when I was younger, and I have now chosen to practice flying trapeze. Such activities release my brain from a great amount of stress, make me feel accomplished, and overall help me become a better and well-rounded young woman.
