This is the second year that we celebrate May as National Physical Activity Month. This day was created in order to encourage Americans to make physical activity a part of every day life.

It can be challenging to find a way to include exercise in our daily schedules but there are simple ways to increase physical activity that you may not have thought of before. This month, try a new activity and aim to make exercise a part of your daily life.
