Summary of Benefits of activity

As a generation we can advocate ourselves to make a change. Maybe instead of playing a quick game of madden we could go outside and play football with are friends. I am not saying that we need to not play video games, what I am saying is let's live life a Healthier life by being a bit more active. We can live life with less disease and stress just by going for a short walk/jog each day.
