An active lifestyle is central to good health. Engaging in regular physical activity and reducing sedentary habits such as television viewing, can play a key role in achieving a healthy body weight, building and maintaining healthy muscles, bones and joints, and improve mental health related to stress and depression. Incorporating movement into the daily routine, even in several 10 minute bouts of moderate intensity activity, can help to lower the risks associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some cancers.
