    As the global pandemic has affected many for over a year, people have experienced changes to their lifestyles – and in turn, their bodies – because of the stresses brought on by COVID-19.

    By spending more time sedentary and solitary under strict lockdowns, experts say they’re not surprised that people have reported bodily changes like weight gain, as well as neck and back pain.

    In fact, a U.S. study found that when stay-at-home orders were first introduced in 2020, Americans gained 1.8 lbs (0.8 kg) on average in March and April 2020.

    Global’s Alexia Kapralos looks into how the pandemic has taken a toll on our bodies, and what people can do to improve their physical health as normalcy is on the horizon.
