And why you should be doing it amidst the Coronavirus madness.

COVID-19 has thrown us a curve ball the likes of which we, as a society, have never before seen.

The widespread advice right now is to stay home unless absolutely necessary. Schools have closed. Mass social gatherings have been cancelled. Many have voluntarily self quarantined.

Just like a healthy diet, exercise can contribute to general good health and therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently. — Harvard Health Publishing

Aside from avoiding large gatherings, not touching our faces, and washing our hands a lot; investing in a strong immune system is one of the best precautionary measures we can take.
