Some people tend to think that one activity may be more difficult than another. However, whatever you’re interested in, it all takes effort. Everybody has different strengths and weaknesses, so therefore everybody has different perceptions as to what is challenging and what is not. People shouldn’t argue that the activity they choose participate requires more effort than others.
Of course sports cause more physical activity than other extracurriculars. However, more physical activity does not necessarily mean more effort. For instance, children and young adults who are involved in music have to strain themselves mentally and receive more educational benefits. Both sports and other fine arts related activities require the same amount of effort, the effort is just applied in different areas.
People (particularly young people) tend to want to be apart of the “hardest” sport or activity. There really is no way to do that, though, since everyone is different. Something that is too much running or physical activity to someone could be nothing to another just as while a certain activity could be too difficult to mentally comprehend to one could be simple to another. There is no way to measure which activity requires the most effort or is the most challenging.
If you work hard and challenge yourself, everything you do will contain the right amount of difficulty. The amount of effort someone chooses to put into what they do will reflect on the level of effort required to do well. So claiming that one activity is harder than another is illogical as all extracurriculars require work.
