Here are some easy ways to sneak extra steps into your day:
  • Do laps at home-while you're waiting for the water to boil or coffer cup to fill, take a few laps around the house. Even if your home doesn't have an easy walking path, walk around your table or couch, or take a few trips up and down the stairs.
  • Walk while you brush-multitask by walking around and getting your things ready while you brush your teeth.
  • Unload the groceries carefully-you can unload your grocery bags one at a time, for a bonus exercise, do reps with each bag so your biceps can get a workout.
  • Walk for those notifications-set your phone across the room, when you hear your notification sound go off, walk over to get it.
  • Do some laps during commercials-you're not going to want to watch them anyway, so when commercials come on during your favorite shows, walk around the house.
  • Pace for phone calls-make an effort to pace around your office while you're on phone calls if you can.
  • Walk to somebody instead of emailing them-try to get up and walk to the people you need to talk to whenever possible-just be sure you aren't interrupting an important task.
  • Take your cart back-walk that cart all the way back to the store when you're done getting groceries. 
  • Start some after-dinner strolls-family time is always a great use of your evening, so have everyone take a walk after dinner to add more steps and make some memories.
  • Invite coworkers for a brainstorm walk-have a mobile meeting by taking your coworkers out for a walk to brainstorm or collaborate on an upcoming project.
  • Set an alarm for yourself-set frequent alarms for yourself so you get reminded to at least walk down the hall more often.
  • Skip eating at your desk-walk and munch instead of working and eating at the same time.
  • Take the long route for a bathroom break-instead of taking the shortcut, take the longer way to the bathroom.
  • Drink less, walk more-instead of filling up your large 32-ounce water bottle, fill up a 16-ounce bottle. It will force you to get up more frequently and walk to refill.
Happy stepping!
