Lifestyle Activities

Your activities do not have to be planned. You can make small day-to-day changes to improve your health. For example,

  • Take 2- to 3-minute walking breaks at work a few times a day.
  • Put away the TV remote control-get up to change the channel.
  • March in place during TV commercials.
  • Sit in a rocking chair and push off the floor with your feet.
  • Walk the dog.
  • Walk while you talk on a cordless phone.
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Doing chores like lawn mowing, leaf raking, gardening, and housework can also improve your health.
