Since the beginning of lockdown, fitness experts have been speaking out to try and get the message to people just how important it is that they are as healthy as they can be. This is more important than it has ever been before and everyone around the world should be looking to heed the message. If you have not been healthy during lockdown then fear not as there is still plenty of time to change that and to put yourself in a position where you are fit and healthy, and this is why it is so important.
Lessons From The Virus
The virus has killed many and it has damaged many more around the world and the majority of those who have suffered the most are those who have been unhealthy. If this news isn’t enough to make you reconsider your health then there is not much else that can be said which can help you. Getting healthy now is the perfect answer to the pandemic and it will ensure that you have a great immune system which is ready to fight anything which may come along.
There are some clear risks to our health during this time and one of the biggest risks is how easy it would be to eat junk, drink booze and do very little given that we are stuck at home. This may seem like the ‘only’ thing to do but in reality there is a great amount that can be done which does not involve being unhealthy. You can fill your day with a huge array of things such as exercise, reading, learning and doing hobbies. It is easy to think that becoming a couch potato is the only thing that you can do, but the reality is there there is a world of opportunity here, you just need to see it.
This lockdown is having a huge affect on our health , both physical and mental. Firstly we have to think about all of those calories which you would usually have burned during your day, that you are now not able to burn. Secondly there are additional things such as vitamin D deficiency as we are not getting out into the sunshine as we normally would. Most experts believe that those of us living in colder climates should be taking vitamin D supplements anyway, before all of this happened. We have got to be aware of the things which this quarantine stripped away from us, and look at how we can take action to ensure that we are as healthy as possible.
As per fitness experts like Ayden Hector this is the opportune time to focus on you and your own personal health. This should involve both your physical health and your mental health, both of which will have been affected by the year which we are living through. Forget about what you have or haven’t been doing, tomorrow is a new day, so let’s go get it!
