Want to feel better, have more energy and even add years to your life? Just exercise. Many people sit at desks during the day, where we’re inactive for a long period of time. People should be active at least twice a week for a better bodily function and health benefits. Furthermore, physical activities can help you improve your sleep quality, energy level, and focus. Studies show that physical activity can reduce your risk of dying early from the leading causes of death, like heart disease and some type of cancers. The good news is that it’s never too late to start. You can start slowly, and find ways to fit more physical activities into your life.
