We always seem to be running around like headless chickens, and we always have somewhere to go or something to do. However, 9 times out of 10, we are not doing something for ourselves, but for someone else. We are so preoccupied taking care of issues for our boss and our jobs, we forget the most important thing that we should be taking care of, is ourselves. When we get home from work in the evenings after a hard day, the only thing that we want to do is sit down in front of the television, enjoy our tea and maybe have a beer or two.
Life Style Change.
If you’re doing this every night and have been doing this for the past five years, then it is very likely that you are not in good physical shape and you are far from fit. Your doctor has probably warned you many times that your blood pressure is high, your blood sugar levels are too high and you need to be doing at least 30 minutes of exercise every single day. However, the last thing that you want to do when you arrive home from work, is to put on your running shoes and your fitness clothes and head back out again to do some exercise.
Fit & Fun.
What if I told you that you could get all of the exercise that you need, but also enjoy doing it as well. There aren’t many physical activities there are also a lot of fun, but the game of golf definitely ticks those boxes. You have some of the best golf courses in Adelaide and there really is no excuse not to try the sport that millions of people play all around the world. It provides you with many health benefits and we will explore some of them here.
- Mental Health – It provides you with fantastic mental well-being, as it keeps your mind very alert and this is very important as you move into your later years. It is also a great way to meet new friends and the social aspect of the game is one that many people enjoy. It is a very competitive sport, of that there is no doubt, but the modern game of golf opens itself up to all facets of modern society. The 19th hole is a great place for socialising, having a cold beer and meeting new people from various backgrounds.
- Easy To Start – If you haven’t played golf before, don’t worry. It is easy to start, but difficult to walk away from.
