As it becomes more and more clear that COVID-19 is likely to stick around for a while, many people are looking to protect themselves by leading a healthier lifestyle. Good nutrition, refraining from smoking and too much alcohol are important elements. But so is regular exercise—and there’s no better way to ensure that it is easy and convenient to exercise than having your own backyard court from Grand Slam Courts.

How does regular exercise promote good health? The Center for Disease Control (CDC) identifies five benefits:

  1. Immediate Benefits: Mental and emotional health is improved. Children experience improved cognition and adults can reduce anxiety and depression. Better sleep, which promotes both mental and emotional health, is another benefit.
  2. Weight Management: Someone who exercises regularly has an easier time maintaining their weight within a healthy range.
  3. Reduce the Risk of Chronic Disease: Cardiovascular disease and diabetes can both be kept at bay through a regular exercise regimen. The CDC also suggests that the risk of several common cancers, like those of the lung, colon, breast and bladder, is lessened through regular exercise.
  4. Strengthen Bones and Muscles: By improving the strength of bones and muscles, the risk of broken bones and falls is decreased. Physical activity is beneficial for those with arthritis and can slow the progression of osteoporosis. It can generally improve your life and lifestyle as you age.
  5. Longer Life: For many, avoiding chronic illnesses, a sedentary lifestyle, and obesity is enough lead to a longer, better life.
