1. Instead of Mindlessly Flipping on the TV…
Try: Throwing a dance party in your living room
Here’s Why: Reclining on your comfiest easy chair or on the couch can lead to mindless munching and overeating. In fact, studies have reported that people eat a whopping 40 percent more food when watching TV than during other activities. So instead of plopping down to unwind after a long week, blast your favorite tunes (whether Springsteen or Lady Gaga) and get moving to your heart’s content-the point is to just have crazy, silly FUN!
Even Better? Make your tube time more active doing these simple strength moves during commercials (instead of fast-forwarding through them).
