Physical activity is good for you—really, really good. It can help you maintain your weight, feel happier, sleep better, and much more. But even knowing all that, it can still be hard to get moving.
Is willpower all you need? No, you also need a plan. Check out the Division of Diabetes Translation’s latest feature for tips on how to get started (and keep going!). Spoiler alert: Work out like you’re at summer camp instead of boot camp (unless you like boot camp).
A bonus: what’s good for your health is good for your family’s, too. Get everyone in on the action!
