The Institute of Behavioral Sciences at Semmelweis University is looking at ways to get people to exercise more.
The Institute of Behavioral Sciences at Semmelweis University has launched a research on the impact of physical activity on health due to the epidemiological situation, for which a questionnaire can be filled out by May 15, Semmelweis.hu reports.
It is known that sports and sports have a particularly beneficial effect on health, they are an effective means against anxiety, depression and chronic stress. The epidemic measures of the Coronavirus have led to a decrease in people’s physical activity, along with an increase in sitting time. During quarantine, the amount of chronic stress that affects the functioning of the immune system may increase, increasing the chances of infection. Despite the decline in sporting opportunities, physical activity must be maintained to protect against negative mental consequences.
The research team at Semmelweis University’s Institute of Behavioral Sciences aims to conduct a comprehensive examination of the links between changes in physical activity and mental health. First of all, I would like to know how to encourage people to do more sports in a crisis situation due to the pandemic, and how emotional and mental well-being relates to physical activity and changes in sporting habits.
