Get more active with all your daily routine

Little by little you will change your mindset to be more focused on being active then being "lazy".

Our book can help you get more insight to make these small changes. Once you've got more movement and in your daily routine your next step is to fit physical activity that you enjoy into your daily routine.

Make physical activity a regular part of the day

Choose activities that you enjoy and can do regularly. Fitting activity into a daily routine can be easy — such as taking a brisk 10 minute walk to and from the parking lot, bus stop, or subway station. You can start by increasing your walks a little more each day. Steps like pennies add up quickly for greater value. Or, join an exercise class. Keep it interesting by trying something different on alternate days. Every little bit adds up and doing something is better than doing nothing.

Make sure to do at least 10 minutes of activity at a time, shorter bursts of activity will not have the same health benefits. For example, walking the dog for 10 minutes before and after work or adding a 10 minute walk at lunchtime can add to your weekly goal. Mix it up. Swim, take a yoga class, garden or lift weights. To be ready anytime, keep some comfortable clothes and a pair of walking or running shoes in the car and at the office.
