Amid the global Covid-19 crisis, the list of what New Zealanders are being told not to do has become exhaustive.
But one thing which has been encouraged is low-risk physical activity.
For many Kiwis, physical activity has been the only way to leave the confines of home during the level 4 lockdown.
Those taking up that opportunity for a daily walk, run or bike ride, will have noticed many others doing exactly the same.
Many are literally jumping at the invitation, with an online survey showing exercise as a leading way for people to manage their mental health during the level 4 lockdown.
For Anthea Ede Smith and Greg Smith - juggling fulltime jobs with four children has made daily exercise an absolute must.
"The kids would [normally] have different activities they do separately but because of this, we're all stuck together so we're all going out," Anthea said.
"All six of us wouldn't go out to a park, every time we go to a park," Greg added. "It would be maybe three of us or four of us or something like that, now it's all six."
Bringing families closer together is far from the only upside.
Associate professor and the head of research of the School of Sport and Recreation at AUT, Scott Duncan, said all this extra exercise was great for our brains as well.
"It's a highly vascularised organ, so there's lots of blood flow and lots of things going on in there. The more we're active, the better your brain functions.
"It's one of the things we don't actually talk that much about. Often we talk more about the physical benefits of being active and being fit but actually your brain is really tied to exercise.
"So we really need to make sure that if we're going to be functioning as best we can at such a challenging time, that we look after our body as best we can."
Scheduling a daily bike ride, walk or scooter outing has been the way of doing that for Lucy Hudson, her husband Marcus Woodhouse and their three children.
And Lucy said they certainly hadn't been alone.
"Every time we go out for a bike ride or walk, we see at least one of the kids' friends.
"Everybody seems to be out and about in the neighbourhood and very much relishing being able to get out and about.
"But also when we go out on our bike rides, there are a lot of people are on their bikes on the bike paths that we wouldn't necessarily see."
Although many Kiwi already live active lives, the numbers indicated for many exercise was a new addition to their daily routine.
The chairperson of the New Zealand Amateur Sports Association, Gordon Noble-Campbell, believed that could be good news for the groups his organisation oversees.
"I've no doubt that many people who might not have ordinarily been physically as active as they are at the present point in time, might be encouraged to make contact with a local club in their community, which offers a sporting experience which aligns to their own personal interests."
So, as New Zealand begins to emerge from this crisis, will this increased level of physical activity remain?
Anthea Ede Smith and Greg Smith definitely felt it would for them.
"We'll carry on going out rain or shine," Anthea said.
"It's becoming a habit, more than a task," Greg noted.
"When I think about, it's like when people talk about going to the gym, that the more you go the more you're inclined to go because if you don't, you sort of think I should have gone."
AUT's Scott Duncan said the country carrying on in the same vein mostly depended if the lockdown had been long enough for people to fully appreciate the benefits of regular exercise.
"It is one of those really unique, in fact unprecedented, opportunities to reset our values and reset our priorities. It's forcing us to change the way we do things.
"If that raises awareness that we constantly take into account and say 'look, we don't want to go back to this rat race'.
"If we can make the conscious decision as a group to do that, I can't see why it wouldn't continue."
In other words, time spent nurturing your physical and mental health isn't wasted time.
