Regular physical activity (30 min/day, 4 to 5 times a week) lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels; protects against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis; strengthens the immune system; helps maintain appropriate body weight; decreases anxiety and depression; improves mental capacity, blood circulation, and digestion; reduces stress levels; boosts self-confidence; improves the quality of sleep; delays fatigue; and decreases death rates from all causes.
