Physical Activity

The more physical activity you do, the greater the health benefits. With regular physical activity, you can produce long term health benefits. Some examples of these health benefits are increasing your chances of living longer, getting a better night’s sleep, and stronger muscles and bones which will help you move around easier and decrease your chances of becoming depressed. People of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities can benefit from being physically active.
