- Take the stairs – using the stairs instead of an elevator is a really great way to get the heart pumping. Even if you are going down instead of up, you’re getting moving without any stress.
- Park away – by parking your car at the end of the parking lot, rather than next to your destination, you can get thousands more steps in each week. This is a particularly nice way to increase activity if the gym seems a bit intimidating.
- Housework – from vacuuming to gardening, so many chores can get your heart rate up while getting the house in check.
