Most people surveyed (91 percent) say they agree that exercising regularly is crucial to safeguarding one's health. When asked how the economy might affect their activities over the next 12 months, about two-thirds said they would be more likely to take better care of their health, eat healthier, and exercise.

People see a link between health and economic well-being, with most agreeing that healthy behaviors such as exercising can lead to a better and a more prosperous life. Ninety-three percent said healthy behaviors would help them enjoy life more and improve their energy, while 91 percent said these behaviors would help them live longer. Seventy-eight percent said exercise and healthy eating would help them save money in the long run, while 77 percent said that exercising and eating right would make them more productive at work.

So get some exercise to stay healthy, save money and be more productive. Exercise doesn't necessarily mean lifting heavy weights or running a marathon. Did you know that sleep can be exercise? CIGNA health coach Nicolette Shriver offers some surprising exercise tips that can help make you stronger and more physically fit.
