During coronavirus, it is important to maintain a level of fitness. Generally men are less receptive to this activity. A leading expert provides an overview of some of the best available apps designed to improve fitness levels.
The coronavirus pandemic has created a more more stressful work environment for many. Such an environment leads people to use their mobile devices more often, as a means to switch off. This increase in screen time is invariably shown through the weekly update many people receive showing how much their device usage has increased.
However, digital device usage can be used for more positive things than watching pointless TikTok videos. In particular men can use that time more productively by improving their overall health with fitness-focused and mindfulness apps. Whether men or women are more physically active depends on the country and in relation to other socio-economic factors.
