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.
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.
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.
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!
