Doctors say that practising sports for 30 minutes everyday can help you live longer. Also team sports like football, volleyball, basketball, not only help you stay in shape but teach you about relationships. Pelé is a good example, he's always in good shape and everyone says that he's also a very good person.
Individual sports like running, swimming etc. teach you discipline and courage.
But many hours of training are necessary and it's not for everyone.
Radical sports like canyoning, rafting and sky diving are more interesting for young people but because of accidents sometimes, maybe not what doctors recommend!
Sports are for everybody. Go for it!
