If you answered “yes” to all of these questions (and who wouldn’t?), exercise is the answer.”

Who doesn’t want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Exercise and staying active is the key. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. Regardless of your age, sex or physical ability exercise will make a positive change in your life.

Some benefits from staying active and exercising regularly are that it will help control your weight, help fight health conditions and disease, boosts your energy, decrease stress, improve your mood, focus and patience, you will sleep better and longer and it can be fun.

You can always find time to exercise. Do a 10-minute workout routine at home, walk on your lunch break, go for a bike ride, go swimming, run around/play with your children or grandchildren outdoors. It is easy to find an excuse not to be active even though you have several opportunities each day.
