From the first days of the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the authorities of many countries began to appeal to the population with a request to stay at home, especially since experts consider this method to be the most effective in combating the spread of the disease. Meanwhile, according to scientists, despite the importance of self-isolation, this regime is also fraught with many dangers for the human body.

So, the first problem that a person may face while living on self-isolation is insufficient physical activity. A week spent at home, regardless of profession, will be very convenient and comfortable. But even if a person continues to be actively employed remotely, he noticeably reduces his physical activity, which negatively affects muscle mass. This is especially bad for those who have only managed to make some progress in building muscle. Do not forget that, experts emphasize, that insufficient activity as a whole carries a continuous negative for the body.
In addition, people who are locked up and unable to take walks and continue exercising in the fresh air no longer increase their heart rate. And while the heart is not beating so intensely, it gradually weakens, scientists are convinced.
Experts also point to the dangerous neighborhood of a person left at home on self-isolation with a refrigerator. In this case, there may be a violation of the normal food intake schedule, and the person begins to get more and more reinforced, which leads to an active set of fat mass.
Finally, staying at home during quarantine, a person begins to spend more and more time at the computer, regardless of whether he needs it for work or for rest and play. At the same time, sitting at the monitor, most people take the wrong position, unnaturally bending the spine, which may also have negative consequences in the future.
