In this busy world, many people can forget to take time for themselves and when they do it is usually veging out in front of the telly watching the latest episode of Love Island or Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Forget that and try out joining a sports league, here are four reasons why you should consider it.
- Meet new people – Meeting new people and making new friends in a city is hard. Outside of work, there are very few opportunities to meet new potential friends. If only there was tinder for friends. Unfortunately, there isn’t (as far as we know) however, there is a plethora of cool after work activities that you can get involved in. Sports leagues are a great way to get off the couch, out of the house and meet your next best friend. The ice has already been broken by the activity, now all you need to do is bond over your shared interests. You’re welcome.
- Learn something new – learning something new has hundreds of benefits. Here are a few of our favourites: the more you learn and practice new skills, the more your brain chemistry changes and the faster you will learn. This is because you form more neural pathways which means you can process information much quicker. It also makes you happier and brings a feeling of accomplishment.
- Fuel the mind – exercise, competition and getting the blood pumping can increase brain power and make you happier.
- Having fun – the most important aspect of our lives is one that many people often forget. Fun brings balance to our lives. Paying the bills and grocery shopping need to be balanced with fun because it alleviates stress. Having fun also gives mental fortitude to get through the tough times. Finally, people who have fun are also more productive and harder working.
You can get these aspects from any sports leagues and here at Whistle Punks, we think The Whistle Punks Axe Throwing League is the only way to go. Each league is 6 weeks long, one night per week for 2.5 hours. Many of our previous league players have created life-long friendships with the other league players.
