It is undoubtful that numerous mature people stop doing exercise which they used to do in their childhood. This essay will describe some factors responsible for the problemб and then will suggest several measures to be taken in order to find an appropriate way out.
The driving causes behind this issue are the following: adults struggle to find their perfect life-work balance and they are not motivated by educators to do sports any more as they were at schools. Nowadays, a large number of those who are employed work extra hours so as to perform better in their careers. As a result, they do not have enough spare time not only to do physical exercise but also to have their private life. Moreover, studying at educational institutions, children and youngsters are usually encouraged to do sports by tutors as well as the whole atmosphere of school. On the contrary, adults make their own decisions about diet, sports and life style in general, which can have an adverse effect on their health.
One way to avoid negative consequences is to strictly limit the amount of working hours. Hardly ever can many employees finish their work day on time if they have an approaching due date of their projects. Therefore, providing workers are not permitted to perform their duties more than their job contracts state, they will have more free time to spend on sports and self-development.
Another way to tackle this issue is to provide company staff with sport facilities in their offices. These services should be free of charge and some specific time should be allocated to physical activities. As a result, it will be more convenient for employees to attend sport trainings, and they will be motivated by their co-workers to exercise on a regular basis.
To summarise, restriction of working hours and introduction of sport facilities at work places will be beneficial for adults and may possibly encourage continuous physical exercising.
