Exercise and physical activity

Fitting exercise into your schedule can be challenging, but making room in your life for exercise can help improve your health, wellness, and relationships. The benefits of engaging in healthy exercise and physical activity include:

  • Experiencing improved mood
  • Experiencing renewed energy and motivation
  • Reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke
  • Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight
  • Reducing cravings for tobacco and other substances

Whether you take up jogging, start going to a yoga class, begin weight training, or something else altogether, finding opportunities to incorporate exercise and physical activity into your daily life is worth the time.
