5) Everyday Opportunities
Activities that you may take for granted can quickly turn into a part of your exercise routine.
- Move: Take a walk every day whether it is around the neighborhood or to run your errands. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park further away from all your destinations
- Household Chores: Mow the lawn, weed the garden, rake leaves, shovel snow or if you are indoors vaccum the entire house or scrub the floors just get your heart rate up.
- Play: If you have children, don’t watch them play join in! Tag, kickball, biking, dancing, baseball….
- Watching TV: Take each commercial break as an exercise break. Do crunches, squats, push-ups etc. for the entire commercial break
