If you have been unlucky enough to have had Covid-19, but lucky enough to come through the other side, the next question is ‘How do I get my fitness back?’
You may have noticed becoming more breathless doing activities that you previously managed quite easily. This can feel quite concerning, and you may have a lot of questions, such as ‘will I get better?’ ‘how long will it take?’
A viscious cycle
Worries about being unwell can lead to anxiety which often cause the symptoms of breathlessness to become worse.
At this point, many are tempted to avoid activities, especially in front of others. Feeling embarassed or uncertain of their own abilities, people often try to “hide away”. And as a person becomes less active, they can often find breathlessness even harder to manage.
This viscious cycle tends to be a subtle process, and one that needs nipping in the bud as early as possible.
