What activities of daily life are good for our health? Physical activity is so important for personal health and well-being that no one should be sedentary. An active life with activities such as walking, shopping, household chores, climbing stairs or walking the dog can lead to an energetic expense as beneficial as regular exercise in the gym. We must devote part of the day to performing aerobic exercises, walking being the preferred activity according to some research. We can complement these exercises with muscle-strengthening exercises such as pilates, and with flexibility exercises like yoga and Tai chi. These activities should be part of our daily routine similarly to sleeping or having a meal.
