The same is true spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially (of course) and financially. The moment you stop and become dormant, a lot of things start to go wrong.
I stand up from my PC desk now and then to exercise, but I realize how that isn't enough. I have to run or brisk walk outdoors as well or just go out to roam leisurely for a change of environment. It's good for your mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.
You keep yourself in your office or house the whole day every day and you might start getting some inner disturbances and personality problems. Or anxiety problems that cause a lot of other health problems eventually.
Go out and see life.
Spiritually, you also cannot remain the same, idle, or just "stay there." You cannot confine yourself in a "safe" box just because you fear going wrong. You have to explore your faith in and with God. I always explore the bible with the Spirit of God and go places in the spirit realms with Him. The safest and most rewarding place is to go places with God (especially in dangerous places like the wilderness where you learn a lot of powerful truths).
I brought you up out of Egypt and led you forty years in the wilderness to give you the land of the Amorites. [Amos 2.10]
Financially, you also have to take risks and invest your money in various ways.
Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. [Ecclesiastes 11.3]So, don't just stay "there." There's so much more to life than what you see in front of you.
