Being active throughout the day may be easier than you think, and it will help you burn calories. Being active for at least 10 minutes at a time helps to decrease stress and gives you more energy. Being active can be as simple as taking the stairs, parking further away, or doing chores like vacuuming. Stretching is a great way to be active and increase your flexibility. Try planning fun activities with friends, like dancing or biking. You can even do stretches or exercises while sitting – at work, watching TV, or using a computer. Keeping sneakers and comfortable clothes in your car or at work will help you be ready to be active anytime. Add activity to your day for a fit and healthy lifestyle!
