Addressing Physical Inactivity & COVID-19
Decreased Exercise has been linked with a greater risk for severe COVID-19
It goes without saying that exercise can greatly improve your health and well-being. Exercise benefits are far-reaching and recent research suggests that Physical Inactivity is associated with a higher risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes. View the research here at BJSM.
As we endure evermore lockdowns, gym closures, community sport postponement and the like, many of us are experiencing greater levels of physical inactivity. This can lead to many health issues from Physical to Psychological Health concerns.
While it is widely accepted, increasing your physical activity levels is essential for physical & mental health and wellbeing, it is becoming more evident that those who are physically active are seeing more positive outcomes, should they contract COVID-19.
Severity of Symptoms
While there are many underlying health issues that can impact the severity of your symptoms, should you contract COVID-19, it is accepted among exercise & health professionals across the globe, the importance of maintaining a healthy amount of physical activity during lockdowns is essential. Please visit the Department of Health for more information on physical activity and exercise guidelines specific to you here.
