Why it works?....

Simply put, the game serves as a distraction and can provide stress relief laughter. It takes your mind off of your stress and provides an outlet. By focusing on something you enjoy doing, everything else for a moment fades to the background........sounds pretty good, huh.


This "moment of distraction" gives your body a chance to regain it's normal balance after experiencing stress.


Outdoor games like tennis or basketball help reduce stress in another way. The physical activity reduces the amount of stress hormones released into the body. This reduces your stress, as well as the symptoms it can cause.
