Make time for exercise

Make time for exercise

  • Pick a regular (sedentary) part of your routine and switch it out for an active choice: Instead of the elevator, take the stairs;
  • Commit to movement after the most frustrating, stressful part of your week:  after a weekly meeting or work task;
  • Work out while you watch TV: you get to indulge the part of your brain that's telling you to lie down on the couch while actually circumnavigating laziness.
