Students have been long accustomed to the world of play. It's gone on for centuries and still will in the future, but what surprises us now is the option in playing and recreational activities that students posses today. Now, students don't have to leave their rooms to be entertained and a single gaming console can suffice very well. And that's the problem. With all the advancements in technology, students have begun to ignore physical play entirely. So today, we discuss some of the advantages physical play brings that can't be fulfilled by virtual play.

Physical Development

Physical play helps students in the development of fine and gross motor skills and body awareness as they become more active physically. The progression rate at which students get better at doing general things is slow at first, as with every developmental stage, and they slowly learn to involve them in more challenging or complicated tasks. Physical play helps them with exactly that. Recess is the perfect time for students to practice these skill sets and develop them further at schools, but since these days recess times have come under great pressure and are cut down or cancelled in many institutions, students are missing on the opportunity to do so. This has led to an outcry from many students specialists that are recommending at least an hour of exercise on a daily basis.

It is vital for students, no matter what their ages, to be involved in play as it provides the best possible health and physical development needed by students for their proper growth. It can especially help students with joint or muscle problems such as rheumatoid arthritis or sclerosis. students with these problems can't be regularly and repeatedly engrossed in exercises to help build muscle fibre in their bodies so physical play comes in handy at this time.

Social and Emotional Development

A students emotional maturity and social competence is developed and increased when engrossed in physical play. At schools and other social locations, students enhance their ability to communicate and interact positively with others more. students also learn to handle and cope with their feelings and pretend play like this helps them come to terms with experiences that might have led to pleasant or unpleasant feelings at some point. This not only benefits the younger students, but older ones too as they learn to manage their emotions.

Creative Development

Physical play isn't all about social and physical factors either, but helps enhance a students creativity and productivity. The play offers a risk-free environment which then, in turn, supports a students imaginative and creative thought process. Play develops the internal imaging ability in students and stimulates curiosity in them, which ultimately leads them to experiment different scenarios and settings in a particular play-area. It is also found that when young students use their imaginations during play times and create games and activities for themselves, they are more creative in later life and perform better at school tasks and problem-solving methods. The importance of active play has been written and talked about many times before, and it's time to implement it in the routinely lives of our youth, no matter what their ages or developmental sequences.

Agreed, all of those benefits mean that when you join a sport at uni for example, it kills many proverbial birds with one proverbial stone
