Boosting your physical activity can actually decrease your biological age by at least 8-10 years. In fact, exercise and fitness can cut your risk of dying. It doesn’t get better than that. Exercise can negate many of the adverse effects from other risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. The more you exercise, the greater the benefit to your body – physically and emotionally. Physical fitness is among the most important things an aging person can do to remain healthy. Being in good physical shape can help people live longer and enjoy a healthy lifespan.
