Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can help you prevent chronic diseases, manage existing conditions, and improve your overall quality of life.

A chronic disease is a long-term condition that can affect your physical and mental health. Some common chronic diseases include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and arthritis.
