Physical activity is the general term for any activity that involves body movement and increases the body’s rate of energy usage. Some activities result in relatively minor or moderate increases in energy usage, while others result in relatively high increases. According to the results of a study published in January 2014 in the journal Alcohol, people who participate in moderate levels of physical activity have an increased tendency to consume alcohol. This tendency appears to be largely connected to a personality trait called impulsiveness or impulsivity.
