April 2015 Daily Tips – Walking and Physical Activity

 

  1. Today is National Walking Day! How are you getting your 30 minutes in?
  1. Park a little farther from your destination and walk the difference to get in some more steps.
  2. Limit screen time for the whole family, including TV and video games, to less than 2 hours a day.
  3. Walking is a great way to warm up before you work out.
  4. Dancing can be a great workout… in a ballroom, at a club or even in your living room.
  5. Stretch after every workout to help prevent injury or strain.
  6. Ride bikes or shoot some hoops with the kids before they start on their homework.
  7. Get more active at work by standing during calls and having walking meetings.
  8. Don’t get stuck in a workout rut. Try different activities and sports to stay motivated.
  9. Take the stairs. The elevator may go up — but it doesn’t make your heart rate climb.
  10. Get busy when you travel for business. See the sights by walking, jogging or bicycling.
  11. Join a fitness center near your job to make it easier to fit your workout into your day.
  12. Walk while you reconnect with family and friends by phone.
  13. Stuck at the airport? Walk while you wait. Look for designated walking paths.
  14. Drink up. The harder and longer you work out, the more water you need.
  15. For an easy, healthy workout snack try pre-cut fruits and veggies.
  16. Tune into fitness during TV time. Walk or jog in place or use a treadmill while you watch.
  17. Skip the cake, say goodbye to pie and take a walk after dinner.
  18. Wear a pedometer or fitness device to track how many steps you take each day.
  19. Plan ahead. Get your fitness clothes and gear ready before you go to bed.
  20. Keep a pair of walking shoes at work for a lunchtime stroll.
  21. Slow down and stress less. Try to pace instead of race.
  22. Walk while you work by using a treadmill desk, phone headset or dictation app.
  1. Get enough sleep. More physical activity may help you sleep better.
  2. Give up bad habits. Too much alcohol, nicotine or caffeine can increase stress.
  3. The buddy system can help you reach your fitness goals by adding accountability.
  4. Fuel up. Boost your energy for a good workout with a healthy snack.
  5. Take the dog for a walk. You’ll both benefit, and so will your yard!
  6. Listening to music can help make exercise more fun so you’ll do it longer.
  1. To make physical activity a lifelong habit, choose activities you really like.
