Health & Emotional Resilience during the Global Pandemic
As our community makes lifestyle adjustments in the midst of this global pandemic, many have been feeling emotions of frustration, anger, sadness or anxiety. Processing these thoughts and feelings in a positive manner may be accomplished by using physical activity and exercise. These two options can be an effective strategy in maintaining emotional and mental health during this stressful period. With so many changes to our daily routines, finding time to exercise can be more challenging. Exercise can boost your immune system; therefore, it is more crucial than ever not to give up on your fitness routine due to limited gym access.
It is vital that you find physical activities that you enjoy. Each day is a new opportunity to engage your body in activities that can bring short and long-term benefits. The key is consistency and developing new habits that will help you reach and sustain your health and fitness goals. While many things around us may feel beyond our control right now, we are in control of our daily actions and schedule. Let us turn this obstacle around and make it into an opportunity to learn of new ways to build our physical health and emotional resilience.
