So we all know that exercise is good for us as it helps to keep our hearts healthy and our bodies healthy, however research has been done that proves that certain types of exercise can actually prolong your life.

Let's face it this is good news.

This article talks about the findings which were published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

So the conclusion is that racket sports, swimming, aerobics and cycling seem to prolong life. Also people participating in these sports have a lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.

So if you do any of these sports carry on as you're doing yourself a lot of good. If you don't, why not look into starting a new activity as a New Years resolution.
