We all took Physical Education (PE) in grade school. The reason for that is because some physical exercise is important for all living beings, from childhood to adults. We all want to feel healthy, fit, and energetic. Physical health leads to increased feelings of well-being and a longer, healthier life. Exercise releases endorphins, the feel-good chemical produced by the body.
Some form of weight bearing, resistance, stretching, and sweating are all different forms of exercise. Yoga, walking, weightlifting, tai-chi, and anything that involves moving the body is included as physical exercise.
