Tennis & Social Health
Tennis is of course a social activity! If you're not alone on the tennis court, there's at least one person you can interact with.
Studies show that lack of social stimulation can lead to increased risk of high blood pressure, obesity, inflammation, and various mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
Being stressed and anxious makes it difficult to socialize. Anxiety can prevent people from interacting with others, and stress can make people irritable and easily upset. Tennis can help address these issues.
The exercise you get from playing tennis helps release endorphins and serotonin. The skills required to master the game require patience, time and a lot of dedication. A lot of time is spent practicing and focusing on self-improvement.
In this way, tennis helps a person to be more disciplined and achieve better socialization because of the interaction with other players who have different personalities and different backgrounds. The socializing you receive will help boost your confidence. Spending more time with others can help you feel safer in other types of social situations.
