Regular physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your health. While it can be hard to find the time, it's important to fit in at least 30 minutes of activity every day. More is even better, but any amount is better than none. Physical activity lowers your chances of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, depression, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Physical fitness in children is also linked to better academic achievement.
