Being a mother means having at least eight hands and two bodies in order to get everything done. When you are not driving the kids to and from school, you need to work late in order to get those month-end figures to head-office.

Apart from playing mother, you need to play wife, peacekeeper and referee at least three times a week. If you are a working mother, things can become stressful really fast and if you don’t take the time to de-stress and stay active, you might see yourself falling to an unrepairable state.

Keeping an active lifestyle and taking part in sporting activities will not only help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, it will also encourage your family to take part in sports that they might enjoy.

Through the ages as women started gaining more respect and trust within society, sports also evolved to enable women to partake in any kind of activity they wish. Here is a list of sports for women that will give you optimum health and lifestyle benefits.


Running back and forth on a tennis court while hitting a ball will make you work up a good sweat. If you have a look at Sharapova, you will see that keeping fit is the best way a woman can conquer the world. As she is one of the top tennis players in the world, many tennis fanatics has placed multitudes of online bets on free bets Australia websites. The winning rate of those bets is just another proven point that tennis makes any woman soar!


You might think that boxing is a men’s sport, but women get a lot more out of this kind of sport that you will ever imagine. Not only does boxing give you a workout like none other, it a very important sport as far as fighting goes.

Women learn valuable skills while boxing such as self-confidence and a wide variety of self-defence methods.


Seen as both recreational and an Olympic sport, swimming is one of the most refreshing sports in the world. Engaging in swimming will give you great health benefits and help improve your lungs as well as your upper body and leg muscles. What makes swimming so great is that you can take your entire family with you to have some fun in the pool while you go at those laps with all you’ve got.


Volleyball is a team sport and therefore a great opportunity for women to interact with one another while getting a good workout. Working as a team will build self-confidence and give you that stamina to be able to handle any work or family related situation that might come your way.

It is important to find a sport you love and want to keep getting better at. If you try different kinds of sport, you will see that each sport works a different part of your body, mind and soul. All you have to do is find the best one and never, ever give up!
