Exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.  Those who exercise regularly are much more likely to live longer and enjoy a better quality of life.  It also helps to impreove mental and emotional health, by helping deal with stress and promoting happiness.

Examples of ways you can increase the amount of exercise you do include:

  • Walking / cycling to school
  • If you catch a bus, get off one stop early and walk the rest of the way
  • Using stairs instead of lifts / escalators in buildings where these are available.

The key is to do activities that you enjoy.  Half an hour of moderate exercise a day is all it takes to improve your overall fitness and health.
