Importance of Physical Activity

Being physically active is one of the most important steps to being healthy, but fitting in the time to be active when you have a family can be a challenge. Involving your family in your physical activity can make it easier to find time – and have the added benefit of getting your family members more active, too. Because youth learn a lot from their families, families that enjoy regular physical activity together can help their children enjoy it as well – building healthy habits for the future.
