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

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description

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.

And I get embarrassed whenever I'm in a group sport thing and I miss a goal or the basket or finish in last place

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.

After a few more shots of missing you get looked down on by everyone and decided to quit sports cause you lack the talent...
Exercising is much better for me.
