How to Make Sure You're Really Hip-Width Apart

Many people have the problem of standing a bit too wide when asked to stand with their feet hip-width apart. A FitSugar blog post explains how to find this stance naturally:

Just Move

It doesn't matter whether you're walking, working out at the gym or cleaning the house. Just get on your feet and move! I find that music usually helps get my feet moving. So turn some on and turn those dreary chores into a fun dancing workout.

Jumping Jacks in the Restroom

Each time I get up from my desk to use the restroom, if the room is empty I go to the largest stall and do 30 jumping jacks. Because I'm drinking so much water, I go fairly often, and it gives me lots of opportunities to sneak in exercise and rev up my metabolism.
