The public health restrictions caused by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the cancellation of many outdoor activities such as concerts, festivals and other outdoor events. Despite the changes and “new normal” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s still plenty of fun to be had. In fact, seeking out fun activities may be even more important now. Doing something you enjoy can distract you from problems and help you cope with life’s challenges.
Why choose outdoor activities?
Medical resources state that the COVID-19 virus is primarily spread from person to person through respiratory droplets released into the air when talking, coughing, or sneezing. When you’re indoors, you’re more likely to inhale these droplets from an infected person, especially if you’re in close contact, because you’re sharing more air than you do outdoors. Poor building ventilation can cause droplets to hang in the air for a longer period of time, adding to the potential for infection.
When you’re outside, fresh air is constantly moving, dispersing these droplets. Consequently, you are less likely to breathe in enough of the respiratory droplets containing the virus that causes COVID-19 to become infected. Being outside offers other benefits, too. The fresh air and sunshine offers a mental and emotional boost, and can help you feel more relaxed as well as relieve stress and tension.
What better place is there to spend time outdoors in the fresh air, than on the open water! Now would be a great time to spend the day deep sea fishing in Miami Beach.
