Parking a 10 min walk away from the house forces me to get at least 2 short walks a day in. emoticon

Rainy Day Walking

I set a kitchen timer for 10 minutes and walk around the house, nonstop, for that time. I set it several times throughout the day and use that walking as "breaks" from daily activities.

10 minutes

I tell myself that I will do 10 minutes of exercise each day and almost always end up doing at least 30 once I get going. It's mind trickery that works for me. 30 or more minutes seems ominous, but 10 is manageable to fit into my busy day. emoticon

Break It Up to Make It

I break up my one hour a day goal of walking into smaller chunks of twenty minutes at a time. That way I'm more apt to make it to 60 minutes then if I try to make 60 minutes fit into my day.

Ride your bike

Ride your bike instead of driving whenever possible--commuting to work or school, running errands, etc. It often doesn't take much more time than driving, and it's a good way to squeeze in more exercise. Bonus: saves money, good for the earth!

Push Ups

I have a post note above my desk at work that says "Do 10 pushups." I do them every day. Eventually, I'll add more.
