Why do you exercise?
Chances are it’s for one or all of these reasons:
- It helps you stay thinner.
- You feel better after you do it.
- It helps prevent heart disease and diabetes.
- It helps you sleep better.
- You enjoy doing the activity.

The research was a collaboration between the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, and the Harvard T.H.
