Walking instead of driving someplace I need to go

I enjoy adding the extra steps if I can walk with a purpose, like walking to the store or library instead of driving.

Exercising while I watch television or listen to my favorite music

I like to do 100 squats a day and I like to work in some burpees too. It's also a good time to jump rope.

Stationary Bike Meditation

As I'm peddling moderately, I breathe in to a count of 4, hold my breath for a count of 2, then breathe out for a count of 4. Paying close attention to my breathing really makes time fly. emoticon

Hang laundry on clothesline

I love hanging laundry on clothesline for a couple of reasons...the money savings for not using a dryer (of course), but the smell of fresh clothes from the line is awesome and invigorating. My line is around the corner and across the driveway, plus I leave my basket at the one end and walk back and forth as I hang them. I have twelve 20-foot lines and usually do 5 to 6 loads a week. Then when dry I fold them and put them in the basket the same way, walking to the other end.

Moving around during my work day

I like to pace around while on the phone, it's good for me, and I believe the person I'm talking to can hear that my voice is more alert as when I'm slumping in my chair. I also have a reminder set on my laptop which makes me get up once every hour and go get a glass of water.

Park as far away as possible!

I am a regular weight lifter/gym goer, but I still do the classic "park as far away from the business as possible". And I try to walk places that aren't unreasonable far apart. Really adds up on my step tracker!

Have fun

I like exercising best when I am having fun- playing basketball, playing in the surf, running around after or with the kids.
