2. Try skipping
In as little as two minutes, skipping will get your heart racing. A jump rope is also small and light enough to toss into any bag, so you can take it wherever you go.
3. Stand more

4. Take the stairs
Need to get from reception to the fifth floor? Consider taking the stairs on the way up, and back down again. Make this a personal rule.
5. Plan a walking meeting
Got a one-on-one meeting scheduled with a colleague? Why not take the opportunity to walk and talk? As a bonus, walking side-by-side may actually be more conducive to constructive dialogue, rather than sitting across from one another like adversaries.
