Each day is a new opportunity to engage in a physical activity that can bring short and long term benefits for your body. Especially during the pandemic, everyone, or maybe the majority of people stay at home and do not exercise. If you struggle with depression or anxiety, playing a sport or exercising can help with your mental health issues.
There are many benefits of exercising. Exercising can make you have a longer and healthier life in general. It can help with your self esteem, improvements in your sleep and concentration. The pandemic is a stressful time for everyone, I'm sure everyone agrees. If you are feeling stressed, tired or overwhelmed because of the amount of work you have, going for a walk to breathe fresh air is always a good idea.
If by any chance you lack motivation, feel free to ask your friend or family member to exercise with you. The more the merrier! It is always fun to have a workout buddy or someone to exercise with you as you can support and motivate each other and accomplish your goals together. Take small steps, it is always better to start now than to never start.
