Physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle. In combination with healthy eating, it can lower your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. Physical activity helps control weight, builds lean muscle, reduces fat, promotes strong bone, muscle and joint development, and decreases the risk of obesity.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children and adolescents should be active 60 minutes or more each day, and adults should be active 30 minutes each day at least 5 days a week.

Don't worry; being physically active may be easier than you think! Check out the Good Moves below and learn more about walking, bicycling, playing, and being active throughout the work or school day.
