Physical activity need not be vigorous to improve health, according to the latest Surgeon General's Report. Physical activity at a moderate level improves your mood and sense of well-being. It gives you more energy and helps control weight. It improves balance and bone and muscle strength, preventing falls and fractures. It helps you live longer independently.
