It is crucial to prioritize our well-being, especially during uncertain times.

Living in the midst of a global health crisis can lead to heightened awareness of personal health. It is wise to remain vigilant about any unusual symptoms in our bodies, even when not experiencing severe discomfort. While regular exercise is beneficial for maintaining good health, it is essential to halt physical activities when unwell as it can be potentially harmful.

During illness, the body requires energy to combat infections and sustain internal functions. Common ailments often result in fatigue due to the body’s focus on fighting off the illness. Attempting strenuous physical activity can strain the body further by diverting attention from the recovery process and adding stress to already overburdened systems.

Medical experts studying the impacts of COVID-19 on the human body advise individuals testing positive for the virus, even without noticeable symptoms, to rest for a minimum of one week. In addition to the energy depletion mentioned earlier, exercising primarily engages the lungs – a vulnerable organ during coronavirus infection. Engaging in physical exertion while the lungs are compromised could lead to lasting harm to the body.

While missing a workout may be disappointing, prioritizing your health over exercise is essential. When unwell, opt for rest and allow your body’s defenses to work effectively.
