Benefits of Participating in a Program
Dothan Leisure Services is proud to offer several programs for youth and adults. There are many positive impacts that social activities can have on the physical, mental, and social health of individuals and their communities.
The overall health benefits, both physical and mental, help to control obesity, boost the immune system, diminish the risk of disease, and increase life expectancy. Like improvements to our physical well-being, many studies show that participation in recreational activities is an important contributor to American's mental health and quality of life and can also aid in reducing depression, relieving stress, improving self-esteem, and aiding personal growth.
The social benefits of recreation can also strengthen communities, promote social bonds, and support youth and the elderly. Social activities are essential for strengthening and maintaining a healthy community.
