Here at Healthy Living, we believe everyone deserves to live an active, vibrant life -- even "magical" ones. Last Christmas, for instance, we took a cold, hard look at Santa's sedentary lifestyle and poor sleeping habits.

But now spring has sprung, and it's time to turn our attention to this season's holiday mascot: The Easter Bunny. While Easter is known as the sugar-rush holiday (what did you think gave the bunny his hop anyway?), we actually found some surprisingly helpful health lessons from Peter Cottontail. Read on, then tell us what we forgot.

Hopping from egg hunt to egg hunt, the Easter Bunny gets a gold star for fitness. Adults should aim for about two hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) each week of moderate to intense aerobic activity -- and we're sure our furry friend is clocking in at least that much.

But while Plyometric exercises are all the rage lately, repetitive hopping can be hard on the joints. We recommend taking a break every now and then.
