Associate professor Melody Smith from the University of Auckland’s School of Nursing, shares with The Spinoff some ways to get active in lockdown without getting bored. “It can be helpful to think of physical activity as a time for giving your mind a break from any stress and anxiety you are feeling, rather than seeing it as another job to do,” Smith says, adding, “…remember that any activity is better than none.” Smith lists 8 fun activity ideas for lockdown, and concludes, “Overall, the most important thing is that we’re looking after ourselves and getting through this together.”
