Today, as competition in society intensifies, students also become busier and busier We seldom have any leisure time at night besides the heavy workload, but whenever I have free time, I will always choose to do sports with no hesitation.
Firstly, to me, sports is essential for me to stay healthy. When I was in ninth grade, which was the busiest time in my junior middle school, I had so much work to do that I stayed up to midnight every single day, and there was simply no possibility to work out. However, because I stayed up and because I didn’t do sports，I felt I was no longer energetic. Even if I was just rushing to the classroom in order to get there on time, I felt exhausted — and that was never the case when I was doing sports. Moreover, doing sports also enhanced my sleeping quality. There was a period of time when I experienced either insomnia or nightmare interchangeably, but later I also realized that it was the time when I failed to persist in working out after school. Afterwards, when I returned to a sportive state, I observed an apparent enhancement in my sleeping quality: I fell asleep almost the moment I lied on bad, and nightmares no longer disturbed me. High sleeping quality, in turn, not only enables me to stay energetic the next day but also allows me to be more concentrated for effective study. From then on, I hardly forget to go to the field, gym, or court after school.
Secondly, I have met a group of wonderful friends in extracurricular sporting activities. Every Tuesday and Thursday, I spent my evening playing volleyball. My teammates were a group of girls that never fail to come up with jokes at any time. Staying with them together，I can find great fun even when I’m doing the monotonous serving and passing training repetitively. We not only complain about the hard problem sets and quadratic functions together, but also talk about everything from the gossip about celebrities to Ed Sheeran’s new album. Playing volleyball with them is a relief from my heavy academic work. Similarly, even I am just doing basic work out in the gym, I often chat with people around me on the running machines. And I really like listening to diverse voices and thus really enjoy interchanging ideas on all kinds of political and social issues with different people. Because of these people, doing sports every day brings me great fun and pleasure，and that’s why I seldom fail to do so.
Admittedly, doing part-time jobs and playing musical instruments should also be great extracurricular options. Doing part-time jobs can not only help one earn money but also accumulate important working experience, which is essential for future career. While for people into music, spending whole nights playing piano or guitar will be their utmost joy. However, they also bear disadvantages. Part-time jobs will add on to one’s fatigue after a whole day’s academic work，while musical instrument is very costly compared to sports that only require a track and field. Compared to them, sports is less costly than musical instruments, and also less tiring than part-time jobs.
Therefore, I still believe doing sports can bring the most direct benefits I value most —good health and great friends — and that’s why every afternoon I’ll always choose to put on my sports shoes, change a sporting shirt and walk onto the court or field with no hesitation.
