We all know how much school work or academic work we are handling when we are in schools or universities. We can have a lot in our hands and sometimes it can be pretty difficult to handle. But apart from this, we are still advised to join at least a club or two. These are what we call the extracurricular activities. Remember how you joined in for the Christian Community Club, or the Basketball team? They all add up to our school works. Now maybe we are wondering why it is advised to join even though we already have a lot of the academic ones. This is because these added activities keeps us going and lessens all the stress that we are exerting for our school works.
If we are too hooked up with academics all the time, it will add a lot of stress into us, and we will not have that time to renew our minds. Activities offered in school like the clubs will give us light work and just simple tasks. This will initially relaxes us more. Everyone knows how difficult it is for our mind to think about the stress, exams, projects and other things all the time. There should be a moment of relaxation and leisure that must come with it. Being a student is not all that simple. There can be so much going on and in our young ages, we are not that capable of handling them yet.
When we join Extracurricular Activities, we will not only have something good to do, but will also meet more friends and acquaintances. These all will release some of that stress away from us. We can do something that is useful without being too tired of thinking. We can enjoy the things we want, and get credits for it. You may probably think you do not need another activity that will add up into your school work. But these activities are what eases up all the work you have. It will be a source of break from what you currently do. Sometimes, if we are tired and want to relax, we tend to go out and play tennis outside school, play basketball, research about poetry, cooking, etc. The question now is why do you have to go out, when you can do all of these inside your won school?
Our campus is complete with facilities (depending on the school or university we are enrolled in) that will support us not only with our academic needs, but also with our leisure needs. All we have to do is apply for the activity that we really like. The key here is to know how you can choose for that appropriate one to join in to. Once you know it, you are ready to have that leisure time you need that can also benefit other people including yourself.
