Why Is Exercise Important?


Exercise has a plethora of benefits. These include controlling weight, fighting health concerns, improving mood, boosting energy, better sleep, and higher libido. According to NPR, one in four US adults play sports. This leaves no shortage of options for activities.


Exercise is one of the most important pillars of our health and is essential in regulating our bodies and keeping everything in check. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be difficult to find time or energy to exercise. If you're living in California, you're lucky enough to have sunshine for most of the year. Take full advantage of it by going outside and getting your body moving!


What Activities Should You Try?


Although there are many activities you could do solo, such as rollerskating, dancing, biking, hiking, and so much more, it may be wise to consider joining a league. The camaraderie and support of a team can be so important to not only our physical health but our mental health as well. This can be anything from a flag football league or coed kickball league to a beach volleyball league or a fully intramural sports team. You can also join a weekly class like yoga or a spin cycle session. Besides being incredible for your body and mind, this is an amazing way to make friends and connections, especially if you are new to the city.


If you were ever in after-school sports in high school, or intramural sports in college, you have most certainly played kickball. Kickball leagues are growing in popularity and are highly popular amongst coed adults and college-age sports leagues. It is an incredibly fun, low-effort sport.


If you've just gotten out of college or are simply looking for new friends, Beach City Sports has many recreational sports options that will help you meet amazing new people with similar interests. With beach volleyball, cornhole, flag football, kickball, and basketball, there is absolutely something for everyone at Beach City Sports in Orange County.
