Author(s): Dr. Mohammed Shosha
Abstract:
Background: Most of people are aware of the physical and mental health benefits of physical activity and exercise. As the whole world copes with the new COVID-19 pandemic, business closures, social distancing, and changes in every day schedules are disrupting just about every aspect of ordinary life and exercise routines are no exception.
Purpose: The purpose of the present paper was to review and analyze the existing data about physical activity and exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic and to present the recommended solutions to stay safe and active despite the recent daily restrictions because of the pandemic.
Methods: Potentially related articles from different web sources were narratively reviewed and retrieved. The search period was from January 2020 to October 2020 and the keywords included the terms “Physical Activity”, “Exercise”, and “COVID-19”.
Results: The main results of this search find that physical activity and exercise are suggested during the COVID‐19 pandemic due to their multiple benefits on physical and mental health. Home-based training, going for a walk, meditate, practice a physical distance, using face masks, wash hands, and follow the hygiene rules are highly recommended. More experimental studies still needed.
