6. Stand or pace while chatting on the phone
No need to sit in one place while you’re on the phone or participating in a teleconference. Try standing or pacing in your office while you chat.
7. Dance while preparing dinner
Turn on some tunes and cut a rug while you wait for the ding of the dinner bell. Want to move more? Keep the party going while clearing the dinner table and washing the dishes by hand.
8. Get off the bus or subway a stop or two sooner
Hop off the bus or subway early to sneak in those extra steps. Every little bit counts!
9. Park further away
No need to take advantage of all modern conveniences. Next time you visit the mall, dentist, or movie theatre, try parking in the furthest spot for an extended stroll.
10. Try a HIIT workout
Short for “high intensity interval training,” HIIT is a strategy that involves alternating short periods of intense exercise with shorter and less intense recovery periods. This might take the form of 30 to 40 seconds of burpees followed by 15 to 20 seconds of walking in place. Squeezing in a quick 7- to 12-minute HITT workout will greatly benefit your mind and body, and you’ll be done before you know it.
