What if I have long-COVID?
Long-COVID is when you experience persistent symptoms for more than six weeks, despite the virus leaving the body.
Firstly, it’s important to ensure you have a current medical professional network to help you get your health back, and recover safely.
As a component of your recovery, exercise is just as important. It’s integral you slowly reintroduce physical activity and pace your day. It’s important to ensure that you pace yourself, following similar principles to that of most COVID-19 recovering people, but perhaps starting slower.
Exercise doesn’t exist alone, and it shouldn’t be your only focus. A healthy body, and fitness success, depends highly on good quality sleep, diet, and mental health management as well.
It may also help if you develop an action plan with a healthcare professional for ongoing guidance.
