The World Health Organization recommends ‘active’ video games to stay healthy during the Coronavirus emergency
L’World Health Organization (WHO) continues to provide support and advice during the emergency Coronavirus, and has now recommended “active” video games as a way to stay healthy during the “quarantine” period.
On social media, WHO has published a list of physical activities that can be done at home and that can help keep us fit and active without having to go out.
The list includes online gymnastics classes, dance, the aforementioned active video games, and various physical workouts.
Some ideal stocks to stay active are Ring Fit Adventure, Fitness Boxing is Just Dance, all available on Nintendo Switch. Another good idea is to play a game with Wii Sports Resort, and use the boxing mini-game for a mini-workout. Even VR titles, like Beat Saber is Half-Life Alyx, they tend to make players move.
