What Are Some Everyday Things I Can Do To Get Physically Active If I Can't Devote Specific Time To Exercise?

Question: What are some everyday things I can do to get physically active if I can't devote specific time to exercise?

Answer: One of the easiest ways to get physically active is to use a pedometer to measure your steps. You can clip a pedometer to your pants and monitor every step you take throughout the day from the time you get out of bed until you get back in bed at night. If you find that you're only taking two to three thousand steps a day you want to try to focus on bringing that number up closer to 10,000.

And 10,000 steps is about four miles, but it does include every step you take from the time you get up until the time you go back to bed. Another way to increase your steps throughout the day is if you have a dog and you walk the dog you could do that more often and both you and the dog will get healthier.
