Here are some tips on how to easily add more exercise into your life! Some were previously mentioned during the Weekly Challenge of Stair Up (and Down!) but all are great tips worth emphasizing:

TIP #19 – JUST PARK IT ALREADY!: We waste so much time looking for a parking space closest to our destination, whether it be in a parking lot or in the street.  Just grab a spot a bit farther away from your destination than you normally do.  You’ll save time, and just as importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to walk a little further and get into better shape.  Notice  how I said you’ll have the opportunity to walk farther, not that you will have to walk farther.  As you get into better shape, you will relish the opportunity to squeeze in a little extra walking, rather than dreading it.  You’ll see!

TIP #20 – THE MILE OR LESS RULE: Getting into the habit of walking and biking will help save on expenses, such as carfare and gas, and will help the environment as well. Add physical activity into your daily routine. Whether you are doing errands or visiting a friend, make it a priority to walk and bike, especially if the destination is less than a mile away.

TIP #21 – WALK AND TALK: Never sit while on the phone.  If possible, walk back and forth while talking on the phone at home.  Pace like a madman!  You wouldn’t believe how many extra calories you can burn while talking on the phone!
