Did you know that engaging in just some physical activity (this includes walking, gardening, doing physical household activities like the laundry or lawn mowing, etc.) can have immediate health benefits and decrease your risk for most causes of morbidity & mortality, including cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, dementia, depression and more? Getting up and moving about is a great way to take control of your health and help prevent the development of many health conditions.
