It is generally accepted that exercise is good for children and teenagers. Therefore, physical education and sports should be compulsory for all students in all schools. What do you think? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples form your own knowledge or experience.

Successful is the one who survive the worst. An utmost crucial step towards it is to maintain physical fitness. The foundation of a healthy society is built when the children and youth are healthy and
hence
, its importance should be taught from the very beginning. I totally agree with the argument that every school should make physical education and sports as their compulsory part of the academic curriculum.
This
essay will talk in favour of
this
argument. Very truly quoted - "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Sedentary
lifestyle
makes children lethargic and they are prone to several diseases. They are allured by the junk foods, but do not indulge in any sorts of play or exercise. Obesity is one major problem children are facing now a days. Because of inactive
lifestyle
children are falling ill frequently. Little change in weather brings them under the weather largely due to a weak immune system. Indoor games are more preferred
instead
of outdoor games,
hence
at home as well they keep on sitting at one place for extended periods. For successful and sound life, balance between physical and mental well being is necessary. Adding to
this
, they may involve themselves in other kinds of activities. Children and teenagers are more inclined towards spending time using the Internet, be it on mobile phones, laptop or on any other platform for that matter. Playing over the internet, video games or Playstations would not help in achieving the goal of fitness.
Also
, there are numerous inappropriate content available on the web which may spoil the young generation. Since it is easily accessible,
hence
become convenient to use and can become the comfortable zone for many.
For example
, PUBG has become the talk of the town and children as well youth spend their time playing it
instead
of going out. To conclude, if sports or physical education becomes compulsory in schools, children will be forced to play no matter what. Until an active
lifestyle
is adopted, overall development is not possible.
This
will
also
result in a healthy
lifestyle
and higher degree of performance and productivity would be achieved.
