Since the start of 2020, many of us are confined to just four walls of our home due to the ongoing pandemic situation. We saw a major shift in our day-to-day lives, students are shifted to the online mode of learning and many non-essential jobs were shifted to work from home mode to restrict the spread of this deadly virus. But being at home all the time was fun for the first few days but soon we realized that it is a curse and our own homes felt like living in prison. We want to get any chance to go out of the house just to get fresh air for a change after spending days at home.
Now, as the restrictions are easing down, many companies still prefer the work from home. But being at home all the time is dangerous for our mental and physical health. Cycling is an activity that people have forgotten for the last few years, but now the trend of bicycling is back and people are buying or renting bicycles to go out and have some sort of activity to engage themselves out of their homes.
Riding is not just some fun activity but it has many benefits for our health and well-being. Cycling has many benefits such as cardiovascular health, good for joint mobility, and good for losing body fat, improved muscle strength. Other than the physical health benefits, bicycling is an excellent activity for mental health and well-being as when we do some sort of physical activity our brain releases chemicals that are dopamine and endorphins which reduce our stress level and makes us feel happy. So, if you are one of those who are stuck at home due to this pandemic should go out and try cycling that will make socializing and entertaining too!
