See, to me that doesn't make sense.
Then again, I'm the type of person that's perfectly content on their own, and don't feel the need to physically have other people around me.
However, the part that doesn't make sense is this focusing on being outside. Before all this, it was never thought of that many or even most people were inside somewhere 22 or 23 hours a day. Work, sleep, commuting alone takes up 17 or 18 hours. Another 4 or 5 hours cooking, eating, cleaning, watching TV, other chores and activities.
For many, walking from their car into work, or a store, pumping their gas, taking out the garbage or getting their mail is all the outdoor stuff they do. Yet they are considered fine as far as outdoor time.
I'm not sure, but could it be people have cabin fever because they aren't splitting 16 hours between a workplace and their home, and it's vastly more in one place now? Just a thought.
Is sitting outside reading a book or something healthy? Maybe. I guess it is. Is it healthier than sitting in your comfortable house doing the same thing? I don't know. It doesn't really feel like it would be to me. Especially if you'd rather be inside.
Returning to the subject for a moment. I'd have to see evidence that running up and down concrete steps has any benefit over wooden steps, or if jogging around your living room while watching Netflix is better than doing the same thing outside. Screw the concept of "pushing yourself" Again, for all the people who essentially do nothing, pushing yourself really doesn't sound like a cool idea. If all someone can do is walk fast for 4 mintues before they need a breather, and then can continue for 2 or 3 minutes more, I really can't imagine the benefit of doing it outdoors, when you could have done the same thing inside in their underwear.
I say screw guidelines in general. I see people using them to test the limits, rather than an extremely bare minimum.
Re the 6 foot guideline. I've said it before, but I have no faith in that. There is no way I would go over to someone's back yard where others are gathered, eating my own food and drink, making sure we all maintained the 6 foot guideline. F*ck that. I don't like anyone enough to risk that. I'll stay home and text ya'll. The thought of sitting around with others like that gives me the heebie jeebies.
I also have no faith in hand sanitizers, wipes and similar. Wash your hands, rinse, then wash again. Nothing but sluicing whatever is on your skin down a drain, then repeating to make sure, makes sense to me. Sure in a pinch hand gel will help to some extent or another.
Re exercising indoor or out. Right now is not the time to practice executing perfect form with our stride, wonder whether we are pushing ourselves, or compare or contrast the benefits of joggling (that's what I do, I joggle) on tile floor or pavement and whether the air is "fresh" or not. We have enough stuff on our minds.
As of much benefit right now might be taking a nap.
But, we have to obsess about something I suppose.
Oh. All one needs to do is google "exercise guidelines COVID 19" to see that there are plenty of sources already in place.
