The old saying "all work and no play makes Jack a dull lad" is more relevant than ever. Unlike previous generations, today's children have relatively little physical activity to look forward to. This can have a negative effect on their health and metabolism. Given our subcontinent's high rates of diabetes and heart disease, it's critical for children to receive enough exercise and stay in shape before they grow up and find it more difficult to control these (preventable) conditions.
With that in mind, consider the following reasons for allowing your child to play outside every day:
Obesity is on the rise among children all across the world. This alarming practice has become much more prevalent in the current generation. It can cause joint pain and a sluggish metabolism at first. Obese children are also more likely to develop heart disease. Any game that requires some running about is a sure-fire way to avoid obesity and burn unwanted calories.
Junk food and sugary drinks deliver many more calories than the body requires. This leads to a slowed metabolic rate, which is harmful to the body. Low-metabolism people have trouble concentrating, are more sluggish, and have poor coordination. These problems persist a lifetime, and it's quite difficult to get a person's metabolic rate back up unless they engage in regular rigorous activities like outdoor games.
While playing a competitive game with their classmates, your child will acquire essential lessons. Children learn the importance of teamwork and bonding via outdoor team sports. They also serve as concrete examples of what excellent leadership and collaborative efforts may achieve. Not only will this benefit your children's health, but it will also assist them in developing emotional maturity, which will be beneficial in the long run.
Nowadays, it is simple to become a recluse who works alone on a computer, plays console games, and so on, with little or no interaction with the (actual) world. This will not be the case for kids who participate in group outdoor sports and activities. It makes a person more outgoing and gives them a more positive attitude toward forming bonds with diverse people. Leadership abilities are also cultivated, as is the ability to cope (and, more significantly, learn) from losses, which is a talent that will become increasingly vital as a person grows older.
5. Less mischief
A fatigued child is less likely to indulge in mischievous behavior. Furthermore, participating in activities will aid in the development of a responsible individual who is also more likely to follow the law and be sociable.
Of course, there are disadvantages to being outside. Mosquito bites, for example, have the potential to spread severe diseases including malaria. Therefore, make sure to put everything in place to keep your children safe before, during and after playing outside. So keep these factors in mind and urge your child to participate in as many outside activities as possible for a healthy development.
