Nickle and Dime Exercise Strategy

20 Aug
  1. Park farther away from the office, or get off public transportation at an earlier stop, and walk the rest of the way.
  2. Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  3. Go for a walk during lunch
  4. Do a few squats while waiting for your lunch to warm up or the coffee to be brewed instead of reading the papers.
  5. Instead of meeting in the office or over lunch, meet in the gym or while taking a walk.
  6. Take frequent breaks to get up and walk around.
  7. Find a gym near your workplace and exercise for 20 minutes during your lunch break or just before or after work.
  8. Use your headset or cell phone and walk around while talking on the phone.
  9. Stretch occasionally while sitting at your desk.
  10. Have a set of hand weights by your desk. Take it with you around the office or do ten hand curls to give your fingers a break from the keyboard.

Remember every move you make uses energy. At the end of the day when you tally your balance sheet be sure you have spent more energy that you consume.
