“Sports is like medicine for negative thoughts” – Yusuf Pathan

The Kashmir region is troubled throughout the year. It’s a tough experience for the kids but there have been efforts made in recent times to improve the overall mindset. One such remedy taken was to develop sporting centers, helping the adults and children take their minds off the crisis.

Sports are a morale booster and give you a psychological boost. It will always keep you motivated and determined. When you are engaged in sports, you will not get distracted by anything. Your mind will not be engaged in negative thoughts. Sports is like medicine for all this.
