Other Tips

Get up from your chair (permanently lose the TV remote) or out of your car more often (avoid drive-through windows).

When unloading groceries from your car, carry one or two bags at a time into the house.

Start a hobby like gardening that makes you move.

View chores like lawn mowing, dusting, and vacuuming as opportunities to exercise.

Turn off the TV and play with the children, which will tax you as much as you allow.

Try dancing. There are styles to suit any preference.

Learn a new sport. Take golf, tennis, or racquetball lessons.

Do double duty. When you shop for groceries, move quickly down the aisles. You may miss some items and have to backtrack, but that only adds to your workout.

Join groups that are active, like mall walkers, hikers, or bicyclists.
