    I bet sex and dancing are the two most beneficial. If you consider positive social activity, especially intimate conversation an activity, this is probably up there with the most beneficial as well.

    Helping others is also supposed to be beneficial. It makes us feel better and keeps us more mobile when older. There is research showing that people who help others are happier and live longer.
    Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
