Incorporate Physical Activity

Movement burns calories. So the idea is to spend your day on the hunt for opportunities to move more, but still within the natural flow of your daily tasks. One popular suggestion is to park your car farther away from the entrance of the stores and shops you frequent, forcing you to walk longer distances. It might not seem like much, but those steps add up before you know it. Also avoid escalators and elevators like the plague. Instead, find the stairwell and use it religiously. You’ll probably notice that you’re often out of breath, but stick with it. Soon your stamina will increase and you’ll be bouncing up those same stairs, and probably sporting a smaller belt size along with it.

And there’s no need to stop there. Do you have a stationary bike or treadmill you can hop on while doing mundane tasks like reading mail, flipping through magazines, surfing your tablet, or watching television? If so, make the effort to do it and commit. Just like walking the extra steps to and from the car, you’ll adjust and eventually find a comfort zone. And you’ll be wondering why you didn’t start doing this sooner as your slacks get looser by the week.

To take this new movement initiative even further, why not aim for morning and/or evening walks? Weather permitting, you can grab your MP3 player, or even your favorite four-legged companion and just go. If human company is more your thing, dial up a walking buddy to accompany you. By walking and talking with a friend, you’ll probably be so engrossed in your conversation that you’ll scarcely notice how much actual work you’re putting in.
