Quite frankly, this article Physical activity is a strong benefit during COVID-19 by Anne R. Lindsay, aligns perfectly with my philosophy… the stronger we become in mind and body, the better equipped we’ll be to move through this virus with greater ease & grace. And though we can’t change the world outside of us, we can darn well change our experience of it! After living (suffering?) with this pandemic for almost 5 months now, perhaps it’s time for a course correction: i.e., move more (hikes & walks), eat less fat & sugar, and wean ourselves from the 24/7 continuous newsfeed, predicting more doom & gloom!
So, let’s turn away from these stressful alarms and tune into that (“knowing”) still small voice within that awaits us on the other side of the door. It’s simply a matter of putting one foot in front of the other.
Moderate-intensity physical activity, such as walking, not only has the best impact on the immune system, but also can improve cognition, such as academic performance, mental processing speed, memory and executive function (concentration and attention).
