Incorporate Physical Activity Into Your Everyday Life
If you live a busy life and struggle to find time to be active, try to incorporate it into your daily life.
- Choose a parking spot far away from the building when out and about.
- Walk, or bike, places if possible when running errands, getting together with friends, etc.
- Carry your child or give them a piggy back ride to the car, the lunch table, or bedtime.
- Race up and down the stairs in between other less active pursuits.
