Transcript of "Sport Psychology, PE and Self-Esteem"

  1. 1. www.helpingpsychology.com Sport Psychology , PE and Self-Esteem
  2. 2. www.helpingpsychology.com As more and more schools face drastic budget cuts, parents and caretakers alike are wondering about the impact physical education really has on the mind and self-esteem of a child. Does daily physical activity benefit children more than we realize? Sport psychology professionals believe so.
  3. 3. www.helpingpsychology.com Physical education isn’t just about preventing obesity. The sport psychology aspect of a daily PE class makes weight loss seem more like a positive side effect than anything else. Sport psychology is something anyone can benefit from no matter their age.
  4. 4. www.helpingpsychology.com Physical activity encourages the body to release endorphins. Endorphin is a combination of the words ‘endogenous’ and ‘morphine’ which means ‘naturally produced morphine’. Endorphins produce a natural high that lasts long after a workout, giving children and adults alike a sense of well being.
  5. 5. www.helpingpsychology.com Daily exercising also increases blood flow throughout the body which improves cognitive function as well as heart health. Endorphins combined with improved circulation reduce stress and leads to higher levels of performance physically as well as academically. Children who have had the opportunity to be physically active focus better and learn faster than children who haven’t had the chance to move.
  6. 6. www.helpingpsychology.com Unfortunately, many school PE programs are just going through the motions and aren’t really doing enough to reap the benefits of physical activity, even failing to have children engaged in a physical activity for the majority of their allotted time.
  7. 7. www.helpingpsychology.com There are few physical or psychological benefits to be had from standing around. Children need to be engaged mentally and physically to excel in their studies and develop self-esteem.
