A holiday for sports

In my country, there are many holidays to honor great people delicating their lives to fight for peace of my country during the war, and historical events of my country. If I could make a new holiday, I would create a holiday to encorage people to do sports. I have some several reasons for my idea.

Nowadays, people all over the world usually concentrate on working; therefore, they forget to keep fit to have a good health. It is this reason that the rate of obesity has increased all over the world. Adults have no time to do exercise because they have got extra work to spend their living or their jobs require them to overwork before the due date. In addition, childrend have to do a load of exercises after school. And parents do not want their children to have a secure future; thus, they let their children attend to many extra acitivities after school such as learning a foreign language, attending to the extra class. As a result, people only focus on their academic development, but they ignore the physical development. However, the physical development is also the key didtribution to our success in the mordern life because good health will help us to do everything in our lives.

If people had a free day for playing sports, they would enjoy their leisure time in the right way because sports will help us release stress after hard working days. Moreover, when we participate in some organized sports such as basketball, volleyball, or baseball…etc, we can learn some skills of working in group that are usually required in our work place. For example, we know how to share our role in group. Besides, we can find out our strong points when we are play these kinds of sport.

In conclusion, physical development also plays as the same important role as that of academic development for our success in the modern life. I think it should have a holiday for sports to remind people keep fit to have a good health to delicate their lives for the good future.
