Physical activity during the stay-at-home restrictions
Dr Lindsay Bottoms, Dr Katie Newby and her team are looking at how our physical activity habits may be changing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ‘stay-at-home’ instructions meant that opportunities for physical activity were more limited than ever before, but being able leave the house for physical activity may have encouraged some of us to get out for a regular walk, run or cycle, perhaps even for the first time. Some may have found new and creative ways to be active at home. Equally, some of us may have found that were less able to be physically active or that nothing changed. Their research will look at different outcomes and will aim to discover more about how physical activity habits form and change over time.
