Well-Being and Lifestyle

Sport is a Life Choice.

One that has a major impact on our overall health and wellbeing.

Sport can promote the adoption of healthier lifestyles at any age. Research shows however, that people that develop a love for sport during their childhood have a much bigger chance of remaining involved in sport during their adult years, lead healthier lives… and even earn more and are happier! What’s not to like?

Sport however, can also have negative consequences. The use of performance enhancing drugs and other maladaptive responses like stress, burnout or anorexia have also been linked to sport participation in some populations.  

In this section, we will share with you research and practical examples to help you create the conditions that can maximise the positive impact sport can have in children and adults and minimise the negatives.
