Regular exercise can increase your fertility, improve your sleep, increase your strength and energy, help prevent injury, reduce stress and anxiety, and decrease your risk of stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. 

The best form of exercise is different for each individual. This is because the right activity is one you enjoy and keep doing. That said, make sure to focus on aerobic exercise that increases your breathing and heart rate. To help prevent injury, pay attention to strengthening your muscles and improving your flexibility.

Exercise has many benefits, but they go away if you are sedentary for extended periods of time. Current health recommendations are to exercise for 30 minutes at least 5 days a week. These 150 minutes a week should be moderate-intensity exercise. Examples include brisk walking, using an elliptical machine, cycling on level ground, swimming, dancing, gardening, water aerobics, and casual sports.
