According to American Heritage Dictionary, games is an activity providing entertainment or amusement, a pastime.

Researchers and findings have shown that recreational activities have wealth or mental benefits and help in the development of psychological and social tendencies of individuals. It could be passive or active or a combination of the two. In passive activities , the individual has less of a role to play in the process of recreation but rather engages in it partially without any stress. Examples of passive recreation include enjoying a song, watching aerobics, watching a football match in a stadium or reading. This form of recreation rejuvenates and relieves tension. Examples of active recreation include playing ping pong, bicycling, running, brisk walking and playing basketball with friends and relatives.

Ladies and gentlemen,
“ Teach your sons the art of swimming, sharp shooting and horseback riding “ said Umar, the second Caliph ( successor to Muhammad, peace be upon him) who ruled from 634 to 644 bc. Why were these ‘sports’ so important to young Muslims men in medieval times? It was because sports helped to prepare them to do well in other areas of life, such as, war, leadership and business. There are many popular sports for rich and poor alike. Many spots were contests, like racing and wrestling. Even games like chess were contests that helped train one’s mind for war and competition.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Health is more important than wealth. A certain fact is that we cannot buy health with money. Today, there are still some diseases which have no cure. Wealth doesn’t always make life more healthy and happily. If you’re billionaire you always feel unsafe. Afraid of being killed or kidnapped or your fortune will speedily harm your health and shorten your longevity. Furthermore, without being fit, how can you enjoy your wealth. If a man have wealth, he can have everything, but where there is health, there is life.
Ladies and gentlemen,
Whatever means we employ to keep fit is up to us. In fact we have the choice whether we want to keep it or leave our bodies alone. The benefi of keeping fit are many, provided we do not do it to extremes. There are cases of people over-exerting themselves to death. That defeats the whole purpose of keeping fit. Performed moderately exercise do keep us fit and healthy. We do not have to kill ourselves doing it. Neither do we have to get killed for lack of doing it.
