The marathon runner stores it in order to use it at the right time in the right place but the main thing that is learned is the skill of waiting for the right time.

Great leveler of state of the mind:

Sport is such a great level that you'll lose one day only to make up the next. No loss is permanent. Even a loss teaches you not to do something or how it could be done better. No setback is permanent, never lose hope.

Exercise and sports teach you to focus on the present. The past is irrelevant and no one knows about the future. But this thing is better learned with the help of sports where each second counts and one is doing his/her best to win the game. Sports teaches you each time you play, don’t get bored easily and don’t get tired sooner. You learn to keep in mind the tricks of the trade for a long duration just by playing and getting involved in some sport and co-curricular activity.

Improves your strengths and skills:

Provides Stress Relief when you are stuck at work etc, exercise will help you stay stress-free and happy.
