It is time for us to get up off the couch an to pump up our blood. Too many of us remain sedentary for too long by watching television, working at our desks, and playing our video games. If we plan on staying healthy we need to be proactive and add a little movement into our daily lives.

We can do this by simply walking, dancing, swimming, and even going for a bike ride. I know that many of us don’t feel like we have the time to do any of these things – but if we make even just a few minutes worth our while we will feel better with ourselves.

– Instead of driving to lunch try walking. Pick a restaurant nearby and walk to and from it in order to get your food and eat. If you brought lunch with you then spend 15 minutes eating and go for a short walk afterwards.

– Get up every hour or so and walk around your office. You can clear your head, stretch your legs, and get your blood moving.

– Take your children out walking after you get home or even go outside and toss the ball with them.

– Next time you are cleaning the house make a day of it. Put on some fun music and dance while you clean.

The more activities you do the more you will feel less tired and you will keep your metabolism running. This is the key to losing any amount of weight.
