A healthy diet, regular massage therapy, relaxation and exercise—such habits reflect a healthy lifestyle.

The percentage of Americans who exercise for at least 30 minutes three or more days per week dropped from 53.9 in April 2012 to 52.4 in April 2013, according to a new Gallup poll.

“After a strong showing in 2012, frequent exercise is back down again in 2013 so far,” noted an article posted to http://www.gallup.com.

“But, even though fewer Americans are exercising frequently so far this year, at least in April Americans are exercising more than they did in the midst of and during the immediate aftermath of the Great Recession in 2009. They are now about on par with 2011.”
