This summer, I played tennis. I was enrolled in a summer tennis camp program, as well as practicing with my dad. I really enjoyed incorporating exercise into my daily routine, as it came with a multitude of unexpected benefits. For example, after exercising, I actually felt more energized because I had successfully gotten my muscles to start moving and my blood to begin flowing. As a result, I had better performance throughout my daily tasks and studies. Another thing that exercising does is improve your sleep. This might only be my case, but I fell asleep much more easily when bedtime rolled around. After continuing tennis for an extended period of time, my skin started to glow a bit more and I also felt better emotionally. Playing tennis had the ability to make me feel productive and accomplished. If I ever find additional time in my school schedule, I’d really like to integrate a time reserved for exercise so I can continue receiving these benefits.
