How Cycling Improves Our Overall Well-Being
February 04, 2022
It has only been a month into 2022, and we are feeling all sorts of a roller coaster of emotions. We bid 2021 goodbye in high spirits, hoping for 2022 to overturn the last two years that we have spent on lockdowns and fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus. The joy turned into anxiety as the positive cases had ballooned big time. Then, here goes finding our home and work life seemingly unstable. We have been experiencing a creative rut, work fatigue, sleepless nights, you name it. We are not in our best selves at the moment. The exhaustion and uncertainty have gotten into our heads for far too long. Not trying to get out of this slump is alright. But only up to a certain extent. Prolonging this feeling would only position ourselves into a deeper hole. We are trying. We changed our routines, explored more hobbies, learned new skills, and communicated constantly to those who matter to us. We are always on a quest for self-love and self-care. Getting physical and moving our bodies is a great way to shake off the nerves. Go to the gym, or set up a home gym. Run every morning or take the longer routes when walking to the office or grocery. Play a sport or mop the floor at home. Or get that bike off the wall mount and start pedaling. The pandemic has brought more cyclists on the streets than ever before. Staying healthy is the core message of any health professional during this crisis. And cycling not only lets you stay fit but also allows you to travel to far places other than your homes and while strict travel restrictions are still being implemented worldwide.
