What is the best single thing we can do for our health

There are so many factors that contribute to our health: diet, social support, preventative medical screening, etc.   Yet, what is one single most important procedure that gives largest return of investment for your health? Listen to  Dr. Mike Evans describe the  procedure that if is used as treatment- one hour a day three times a week- reduces pain by 47% for patients with arthritic knees;  if the treatment is done most days, patients with diabetes reduce the progression of their disease by 58%; post menopausal women who have the treatment four times a week reduce hip fractures  by 41%; the treatment also reduces anxiety by 48% and patients with depression who receive a low dose of this treatment experience  relief of depression by 30%  while those on a high dose experience a  47% relief; in addition, it is the number one treatment of fatigue.

The treatment is 30 minutes of exercise–mostly walking–as described in the superb YouTube video, 23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?
