In brief: Exercise

Exercise is good at reducing stress, improving cardiovascular health, and conditioning the musculoskeletal system to the demands of physical activities that could otherwise cause an injury.
Also, a recent study reports that "xercise doesn’t only strengthen your heart and muscles – it also beefs up your brain." (drmarkgalland.Com, 2/27/13).
