http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/exerciseandphysicalfitness.html

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can help

  • Control your weight
  • Lower your risk of heart disease
  • Lower your risk for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Lower your risk of some cancers
  • Strengthen your bones and muscles
  • Improve your mental health and mood
  • Improve your ability to do daily activities and prevent falls, if you're an older adult
  • Increase your chances of living longer

Fitting regular exercise into your daily schedule may seem difficult at first. But even ten minutes at a time is fine. The key is to find the right exercise for you. It should be fun and should match your abilities.
