Take the stairs– Whether you are at work, at home or even at the store, try to use stairs instead of escalators and elevators as often as possible.
Park further away– Regardless of where you are going, parking further away when you arrive is another good way to add exercise to your daily routine. Even if you don’t drive regularly, you can apply this trick to your daily routine by simply taking a little extra time each day for walking.
Deliver a message in person– At work, try to communicate with your colleagues face-to-face as much as possible. Instead of using the phone or e-mail to send a message, simply walk to your co-workers desk or office.
Skip the drive-up– When you are eating on the go, resist the urge to use the drive-up window. Instead, park your car and walk into the restaurant. Without too much trouble, you could add 100 steps to your daily tally.
Stretch your free time– When you have a little more space to stretch your muscles, devote some time to simple movements that can improve your flexibility. Whether you choose to stretch your arms, legs or entire body, simple stretching movements are the perfect addition to relaxing moments of downtime.
Move with the phone– When you are on the phone at home or work, try to pace or do a short series of squats.
The tips listed here are just a small representation of ways to integrate exercise into your daily life. Take a look at your daily routine, you may find that the opportunities to “sneak” exercise into your life are limitless.
