Exercise: Fit It In

How can you fit more exercise into your day? Begin with small steps. Here are some ideas:
  • ·        Park your car at the end of a parking lot so you have further to walk.
  • ·        Use the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • ·        Spend part of your lunch break walking.
  • ·        On bad weather days, walk indoors at the mall.
  • ·        Wake up earlier and exercise before you do anything else.
  • ·        Use a wearable fitness tracker to count your steps. Increase your daily steps by 500  each week with a goal of 10,000 steps per day.
