Wellness Tip
Exercise often, but make it enjoyable. People who live longer lead active lives and don't dread exercise. It's part of their daily lives. They walk and tend to be active by practicing types of exercise they enjoy, such as yoga, Tai Chi or playing sports and games. For more information, visit
