What is different between "sports" and "physical activity"?
Sports and physical activity can overlap with each other, but they do not have the same meaning. Physical activity is using your energy by physically moving your body. Many types of sports involve physical activity, like soccer, jogging, basketball...etc. However, physical activity is not only restrained to sport. It can be related to anything that involves movement in your body. For example, sweeping the floor, running to school, moving heavy boxes all involve physical activity but they are not considered as sports. Also, not all sports involve physical activity. For example, shooting, pool, and archery are types of sports that do not require physical activities.
