And if you’re kicking back at home, give these a shot:

  • Use the stairs in your home as a mini workout
  • Play with your pets – a game of tug-of-war can be a great workout
  • Clean your house – hey, it counts as exercise!
  • Do some squats, lunges, or push-ups during TV commercial breaks
And when you’re out and about, try these:
  • Walk or bike to your destination instead of driving
  • Park your car farther away from the entrance to a store
  • Stand up on public transportation and walk an extra distance
  • Take the stairs instead of escalators and elevators at the mall or department stores
