Make physical activity part of your regular day.  Being active can help you stay healthy, control your weight, lower your risk for many chronic conditions, including heart disease, some cancers and diabetes. No matter what your age or condition, you can engage in daily physical activity. Being more active, even a little bit, can improve your health. A brisk half-hour walk every day can help you improve your health. You will enjoy the benefits of greater energy, better mood and improved sleep.
