Living an active life is important to staying healthy-as exercise is associated with improved mental health and cognitive function. You don’t have to be a distance runner to improve your health. The most important thing is that you’re staying active.
One trick to staying active is to find something you may enjoy doing. For some, that means having a friend to exercise with. It doesn’t matter whether you’re training or dancing at home, walking, going for a nature hike, or going out for a run or a bike ride to the beach — just as long as you get moving!
