Most people surveyed (91 percent) say they agree that exercising regularly is crucial to safeguarding one's health.

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.
