Not only do you live longer, but you also feel better. Exercise tones up a person's mind as well as their muscles.

Noted. I've got a lot of weight I need to lose myself and have been actively doing just that. This is definitely good news lol.

They've been saying this for years. It's just that not enough people are listening.

I exercise but not as frequently as I should regarding certain types such as pushups and stomach crunches. I do walk 5K every day to work and I'm on my feet for most of the day; up and down like a jack-in-the-box. Most people mistake me for being a lot younger than 61+
