7 fun ways to include exercise into your daily routine
You don’t have to be a professional dancer to benefit from the dancing.
It could start by turning on your favorite music from the past and just start swaying to it.
You might even be able to get your spouse, grand-kids and neighbors in on it.

They will love it as much as you do.
