Especially in quarantine, it is important to remember to stay active. When we were allowed to be in contact with others and hang out with friends, we walked around on a daily basis and physically exercised. Now, being at home, we don’t get the luxury of exercise on a daily basis, so it is important to remember to prioritize your health. Exercise will not only release endorphins but it will also make you a fitter and happier person in general.


  1. Enhanced mood: exercise has been proven to release endorphins which help boost your mood and studies have shown that it can help alleviate moderate to long-term depression.

  2. Reduced Stress: exercise can help increase relaxation and can help alleviate symptoms of anxiety.

  3. Improved health – decreases blood pressure and heart rate, controls weight, strengthens muscles and enhances immunity

  4. Better, more restful sleep and a boost in energy.

Develop an exercise routine and schedule that’s realistic for you. If you don’t have morning classes, that might be a good time to fit in regular exercise. If you have a regular lunch hour, try walking or hitting the gym during that break. When in online school, you can workout during a school break, or even go on a walk (with a mask on). Remember to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines and remember to weak and mask and social distance.
