Regular physical activity is essential for optimal health, especially for children who crave activity. Exercise is physical activity for a purpose, while general physical activity includes all of the daily tasks related to living such as walking to the store, taking the stairs or doing yard work. Even though modern technology has sought to remove the need to be physically active, there are still opportunities to build daily habits around physical activity.

Katy Bowman is a biomechanist, the author of Move Your DNA and a public speaker; in her latest book, Grow Wild, she presents a number of different solutions to help the whole family move towards better health by adding more activity to daily habits. Katy joins this episode of All About Fitness to talk about how the lack of movement affects us both physically and mentally and provides solutions for how we can stack more activity into our life. Learn how adding more activity can enhance your life and what you can do to achieve that on this episode of the All About Fitness podcast.
