Everyone knows paintball is hella fun - but did you know it also provides a wide range of mental and physical health benefits?! Here are 4 major health
benefits of paintball:
Playing an intense game of paintball is one of the best ways to release pent up stress, frustration and tension. Paintball reduces the stress hormone cortisol, releases feel-good chemicals in the body and provides a great distraction from your worries. If you’re feeling stressed from work or life in general, book a game of paintball. You’d be surprised how effective paintball is at relieving stress and bringing a sense of calm (after the game, that is!).
Full Body Workout
Don’t have time to hit the gym? Find conventional workouts boring? If you’re looking for an alternative to the treadmill, you’ve got to give paintball a shot. Paintball involves crawling, diving, running, climbing, dodging and shooting. The best part? Paintball is so fun that you won’t even realise you’re getting an intense full body workout. Playing paintball regularly will increase your strength, endurance and overall fitness and therefore reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, depression and numerous other mental/physical illnesses. Paintball can also assist with weight loss, improve sleep cycles and boost metabolism.
Teamwork and Leadership
Paintball is a team sport (unless you’re playing the Hunger Games!) - based on strategy, tactics and achieving a goal. The team needs to come together to strategically take out their opponent and complete their objective. As a result, paintball promotes team spirit and improves communication, leadership skills and out of the box thinking. Playing paintball is a great way to strengthen the relationships between colleagues, friends or family members.
Releases Feel-Good Chemicals
Paintball is a rush of fun, adrenalin and endorphins. Trust us - running around and shooting paintballs at your friends (and strangers!) will make you feel like you’re straight out of an action movie! Perhaps the fun factor is paintball’s main health benefit, because when it comes to health, having fun is associated with increased serotonin, longevity, improved cognition, better brain function, improved heart health and better general well-being.
