This year, I was able to join the JV soccer team. This fits in with the category “wellness” because playing sports affects my health positively. During practice and matches, I have to be running a lot. Meaning, my physical wellness will improve. Joining the soccer team won’t only help me with my physical wellness, it also helps with my soccer skills. If I want to stay good at soccer, I have to keep playing soccer which will make me better.
Joining the soccer team gave me a chance to play against other schools and to compete. Because I am a fan of competition, just the fact that I played against other schools improved my mental wellness because I feel satisfied after the matches. However, we lost a lot of our games but there were also some victories and that taught me that you won’t always win in everything. Losing is just a part of living and it’s just how you come back from that loss and the motivation that you get from that loss to win next time is the important thing.
To conclude, joining the soccer team this year was a great decision because it improved my physical and mental wellness.
