No time to exercise?

Health Tip of the Day
"Getting Fit. . . One Step at a Time"

Exercise is a key to a healthy lifestyle. If you find it difficult to schedule dedicated time each day to exercise, find creative ways daily to incorporate it into your lifestyle.

Some ideas are:
actively play with your children,
break up an exercise routine into 10-minute segments throughout your day and
get up and move every hour while at work.

Other ideas are:
Never sit still while you talk on the phone. Get a cordless or a cell phone and walk, walk, walk while you talk, talk, talk.

Arrange your work station so you stand instead of sit at it. this not only uses more calories, it is better for your back. Be sure to set the keyboard so that your arms are not reaching up or down but are straight out from your elbows. This lessons carpal tunnel damage.
