30 minutes a day keeps the doctor away! 9 things you can do to improve your health NOW.

The Howell Foundation will be hosting Dr. Sears on May 20th with the presentation "Simple Lifestyle Changes for Improving Women's Health"; where she will be talking about the latest research on the effects sedentary behavior has on chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes.

We believe that exercising IS a simple lifestyle change that can help your overall health.  Even though tons of research strongly suggests that exercise benefits practically every single part of your body, the statistics continue to be staggering: only 3 of 10 Americans do enough exercise to keep healthy; 4 of 10 confess they do not exercise at all!

Here are some of the most important benefits of exercise. So let's get moving already!
