Exercise now can help you pass your vacation fitness test.

There are loads of good reasons to sit less, move more, and get regular exercise. But beyond the health and fitness benefits, regular physical activity can help you enjoy your next vacation even more. This is the topic of my Health & Fitness column in the Aiken Standard this week.

Since most vacations involve activity during sightseeing, visiting a theme park, or other pursuits, it can be a challenge to people who spend much of their time being sedentary. A long day (or two or three) at Disney World is actually a pretty good fitness test. And being active in your non-vacation life can help you fare better.

In the column I cited a study that shows that people feel better following an active vacation. You can read that study here.
