Regular physical activity has beneficial effects on physical, mental, and social health. However, maintaining adequate physical activity is becoming increasingly difficult as most environmental and working conditions have become sedentary. It has been shown that staying at home and other restrictions can increase the long-term risk of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders associated with unhealthy and inactive lifestyles. Although, maintaining regular physical activity and exercise routines, especially during pandemics, have a protective effect against anxiety, depression, and viral infections as well. Accordingly, several governmental and professional organizations have formulated recommendations to increase or even maintain physical activity. In line with the scope of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health this Special Issue intends to provide authors with a platform to contribute their research on the effects of physical activity and exercise on health status of the general population in particular during and after the restrictions due to COVID-19 and of the population of athletes. The Special Issue supplement may cover not just physical but mental health, health literacy, and physical literacy as well, we would like to publish health and quality of life aspects in case of chronic disease as PD or in case of female infertility.
