As self-quarantines, social distancing, and stay-at-home orders continue as coronavirus safety measures, millions of people are confined to their homes every single day. Being stuck at home is a huge change in routine, which can cause extra stress and concern in one’s life. Often, when stressed or worried, exercising is an excellent way to get some energy out and focus your mind on something else. Without fitness centers and gyms, it can be very challenging to remain physical activity and keep your body moving. Sedentary behavior and low levels of physical activity can have adverse effects on the health, well-being, and quality of life for many people. Quarantine, social distancing, and stay-at-home orders can also cause additional stress and add to mental health problems. Participating in physical activity as relaxation and stress-releasing technique can help protect your health in these uncertain times.
So, back in 2006, I'm doing about 70 mph on my motorcycle -- while popping a wheelie, with my feet stuck out over the windshield -- when I make a mistake. Bam. One second, I’m doing a stunt for a movie on a Maryland interstate, making money for doing insanely entertaining tricks on one of my two wheels. The next second, I’m roadkill -- still breathing (fortunately) but splattered and sprawled on the highway, with no way to call for help.
