Regular exercise is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Here are 14 rules to actively live by.

Regular exercise equals longevity. It's not rocket science but it has been scientifically proven.

According to Donald M. Vickery, MD, author of Live Young, Think Young, Be Young … At Any Age, "We need to become more aware of how sedentary we have become and how that is affecting us." Adaptation to disuse is relentless, he adds. "It undermines our stamina and strength, and it makes us feel stiff and sluggish. Our body is designed to be active every day; we feel better when we are active."

And the simple rewards of it all. Vickery goes on to explain, "When we use our muscles or exercise our heart and lungs or stretch, it feels so good afterward. It is simply the best thing we can do for ourselves." So think active, says the good doctor.
