    I've been doing more exercise for about 5 years, and my skin is softer, my body is leaner, and my disposition is happier. I was surprised by the skin - my sensitive, dry, itchy skin is a thing of the past. - by VAINVT

  • I love to take a quick 20 minute run during my lunch. It helps, because it reduces stress, and almost always puts me in a better mood for the rest of the afternoon. - by SHERNANDEZ68
