A little housework may be good for older women. 

Investigators (Cleveland Clinic) looked at more than 6,000 women ranging in ages from their 60s through their 90s in the U.S. Everyone did 30 minutes of light physical activity a day, even if it was only things like doing the dishes or folding laundry. They all had a lower risk of death than inactive women.

The more intense the activity, the lower the risk of death went during the study period. Study authors say their findings show "doing something is better than nothing" even when you're only doing lower than the recommended amount of activity.
