Video Games As Physical Activity

Post by jhonavin on Fri Dec 09, 2011 6:05 am

It is common knowledge that video games have caught the imagination of millions of people and today most children opt to play video games indoors rather than engage in outdoor games. Many physical education professionals have condemned this trend as unhealthy.

For any child, physical activity and outdoor games are essential in the growing up years. To remain physical healthy, children must be encouraged to engage in games like football, basketball, soccer, and tennis for muscle building as well as bone strengthening. Regular physical activity as a child will have a lasting health benefit for a person as he/she gets older.

Lack of physical exercises and remaining indoors glued to video games can lead to physical ailments such as joint aches and pains, poor digestion, weak bones and even cardiac problems. Physical inactivity is the chief reason for the obesity syndrome spreading across all countries of the world.

Before the emergence of home computers and video games, children spent more time outside engaging in their favorite outdoor games and this healthy trend routine has now been eroded. With loads of exciting computer games and tempting simulations to indulge in, children have become addicts to video games and refuse to play outdoors. The larger question is what can be done to reverse this dangerous trend and stem the rot before it is too late.

Laboratory studies established that active video games lead to light-to-moderate levels of physical activity.

I have to say that whereas active video games might lead to physical exercise, it's unclear whether or not these games cause a big improvement in overall levels of physical activity.

The cluster conjointly says enjoying active video games does not cause accrued overall daily physical activity levels.
