Sports Activities/Events by A.K. Educational Consultants in Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (IKBFU)

Sports Activities at IKBFU with AKEC for MBBS in Russia

All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. So truly said, isn’t it? Indulging in a single activity around the clock makes life monotonous. Of course, work, studies, and careers are significant facets of life. But they are only a part of life and not life itself. Aspects like music, reading beyond academics, sports, etc., play an equally significant role in developing a student’s personality and prospering them as human beings. At A.K. Educational Consultants, while focusing on a student’s academics, we give equal importance to activities like sports. Accordingly, we arrange different sporting activities and events across various universities to make our students’ stay in Russia even more delightful and memorable. This blog discusses the recent sporting initiatives we took at Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (IKBFU).

The Significance of Sports in a Student’s Life

Many relate sports to physical fitness. But that’s not even half the story. The importance of sports transcends physical fitness. It extends to many other dimensions that help shape a person’s life and contribute to their success as professionals and human beings. Let’s discover a few more aspects that signify how crucial sports are in a student’s life.

1. Enhanced Emotional Strength

Emotional concerns and challenges are part and parcel of everyone’s life. Mental and emotional strength is as critical as physical strength. Often, even physically strong people lose patience and make wrong decisions during emotionally strenuous situations. But those with excellent emotional strength stay strong and endure difficult phases. Participating in sports helps here. Sports help you celebrate victory. But at the same time, they also teach you to accept defeat and respond to the situation appropriately. Students who’ve indulged in sports activities at some point in life are likely to respond emotionally better in the future than those who have never. In many cases, some also help others deal with challenging situations and help them overcome tough times.

2. Increased Resilience

Resilience is associated with emotional strength. It refers to starting afresh after a considerable failure, without dwelling on the latter or letting it become luggage. As sports help students accept failures sportingly and applaud the winners, it gives them the strength to learn from failures and start again.

3. Improved Social Relationships and Team Playing Skills

Many sports involve playing and contributing in and as a team. Working towards victory or a particular goal helps students develop relationships with their teammates. They learn how to bond with people and thus lay the foundation of solid relationships. In addition, students develop team playing skills that further help them work in teams and contribute as team players. 

4. Reduced Stress

Sports that involve physical activities or some kind of exercise are linked with stress-related benefits. Biologically, the activity pumps up the individual’s endorphins, the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, and helps alleviate stress.  

5. Increased Self-Learning Ability

It is up to every individual whether to learn from a victory or from a defeat. But generally speaking, sports help students develop various abilities and capabilities on their own. Often, their counterparts inspire them. Sometimes, they might learn to compete better. These self-learning skills can help them in other aspects like academics and personal and professional life.

6. Improved Self-Confidence

Sports are often linked to enhanced self-confidence. Of course, there are reasons for it. The feeling and assurance that you can do something well helps build self-confidence. Self-confidence is a great booster in itself. Someone who’s confident can deal with things more effectively, even though they might not be the best at it. Self-confidence promotes self-learning, which helps students become more independent.
