Aerobic exercise

Aerobic exercise (also known as cardio) is physical exercise of low to high intensity that depends primarily on the aerobic energy-generating process. Aerobic literally means "relating to, involving, or requiring free oxygen", and refers to the use of oxygen to adequately meet energy demands during exercise via aerobic metabolism. Generally, light-to-moderate intensity activities that are sufficiently supported by aerobic metabolism can be performed for extended periods of time.

In the long-run aerobic exercise benefits your immune system and your mood. People who exercise at least three times a week get sick less often than people who don't. Exercise benefits your mood because it causes your body to release endorphins, which produce feelings of happiness.
