Ideas to Help You Move More

Be creative. Find different ways to move more!

Pick up the pace while shopping.

March in place while filling up the gas tank.

Do some muscle- strengthening exercises during commercial
breaks as you watch TV.

Park farther away from your destination and walk.

Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator. Take two steps at a time when you climb stairs.

Dance in your car. While you’re stuck in traffic, work your abs. Concentrate on your rib cage — pretend you’re a salsa dancer and swirl around. Not only will you see your waist whittle and your abs harden, you’ll release lower back tension.

Keep a jump rope at your desk and use it during your breaks.

Walk around your office building, inside or out, at least once an hour.

Work your butt. When you’re in the car or standing in line, contract your buttocks for fifteen second intervals. Tighten your muscles as you breathe in and then breathe out and release. It not only firms your butt, but relieves stress.

Get free weights or use heavier items in your home/office to do exercises.

Rent or buy exercise videos. It’s like having a health club in the privacy of your own room.

Bottom Line: Find something you enjoy and move more!
