I keep a golf ball in my desk at work. When I have tight feet from running all those miles, I place my bare feet (at the arches) on the ball and roll it around for about a minute on each foot. I do this while sitting on conference calls, so no one can see my bare toes under my desk.
Most of us watch television. If you walk during a one-hour program and run/jog during commercials you will have walked approximately 40 minutes and jogged for 20. Not bad while you're watching your favorite show.
If you are sore or have an injury you do not need to drop the routine entirely. Just modify the workout to give your body time to heal while still maintaining a healthy routine.
I'm an on the go soccer mom constantly at practices. Rather than sitting there & chatting with all the other parents watching the kids sweat it out - I have my water & HRM, & I jog or walk while they're practicing. It allows me time to squeeze in some extra exercise.

Little bits of activity really do add up. I have started taking the stairs in the parking garage instead of the elevator, stairs to go get water, and it is getting easier. I may not have time each day to work out, but these "little bits" add up to the 30 minutes I need.
It makes exercising a part of your lifestyle. It saves money on gas, and my 16 mile commute helps me burn 600 calories.
I try to make the earlier train so that I can get off a stop farther from my office and get in a little additional exercise.
Keep your track suit or clothes you exercise in next to your bed, so when you wake up in the morning you put them on instantly and go for a walk, before even brushing your teeth, and at any weather! Make it a routine, such as brushing your teeth, you wouldnīt skip that one morning, would you?
