Participating in New Activities Benefit Your Health

Research tells us people who engage in productive and social activities are less likely to develop certain diseases, have a longer lifespan and are happier. Even while you are staying home for COVID-19, you can participate in online games, video chat with friends and family and learn something new.

Have you been meaning to learn Spanish or how to play an instrument? Use this time at home to learn new things. Some music or language teachers offer lessons online, or you could try an app or online tutorial video. Visit the NIH website to learn more about the health benefits of participating in activities you enjoy.
