special feature • EXERCISE. Getting exercise is more challenging than ever. Parks and gyms are closed. There are no extracurricular sports. No P.E. But getting exercise now is more important than ever. Exercise will not only bolster your immune system and provide a first line of defense against all attacks on your body, viral or otherwise. But it will also boost your mood, provide more energy and sharpen your mind. By incorporating exercise into your day, you are enabling yourself to face the next day with more energy and optimism.
