It’s important to continue getting regular physical activity during the COVID19 pandemic. Physical activity can help give our days a routine and be a way to stay in contact with family and friends. Research shows that physical activity is also good for our mental health. It improves our overall feelings, reduces the risk of depression, and delays the onset of dementia.
