Physical Activity Provides Many Health Benefits:
For most adults, getting 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per day will improve health. The activity can even be broken up into three 10-minute chunks, like taking short, brisk walks. Choosing to get around by walking, biking, or taking transit instead of driving is a great way to incorporate exercise into your day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), regular physical activity can:
- Help control your weight
- Prevent heart problems, diabetes, and some cancers
- Strengthen your muscles and bones
- Improve your mental health
- Prevent falls, if you are an older adult
