These activities will be made up of: pillars such as physical activity, meditation, socialization, and volunteering.
Physical activity reduces stress because it releases endorphins and other neurotransmitters that increase the feeling of well-being.
Meditating and controlling your breathing helps focus your attention and silence the flow of confusing thoughts; Meditating also conveys a sense of calm, peace, and balance that can benefit emotional well-being and overall health.
Socializing and connecting with other people, seeking support among family and friends, and new social connections, such as volunteering, are good painkillers, offering distraction and helping to tolerate emotional ups and downs.
This project covers 4/5 of the pillars of Maslow's pyramid.
Through sport we cover physiological needs, as they are group activities, social needs are covered, and at the same time, by carrying out actions that take care of the environment, recognition and respect are created in the participants.
