Get in more daily fitness
“No matter where I go, I use the stairs,” Morelli says. “I also always park in the last spot (furthest away) and walk to my destination,” he adds. These seem simple, but they add up over the course of the week. And, you can burn around 20 percent more calories by altering your walking pace (rather than keeping a consistent speed), a study from Ohio State University found.
“If you live within 5 or so miles, buy a bike and ride to work,” Morelli says. “Some of my close friends have found time to exercise on their commutes; and they all say the same thing—they feel ready to take on the world when they get to the office,” he adds. Making this a part of your everyday routine will cement it as a habit. Just be intelligent about it. Buy a helmet. Bring a backpack with a change of clothes and deodorant so you’re not that guy everyone’s dodging in the office.
You can also make sure you’re active over the weekend (even if your weekend is on a Tuesday!) Play baseball or kickball, go for a bike ride, and plan active vacations, like hiking and camping or skiing.
