Get Some Indirect Exercise, Too

There are many ways in which you can get exercise, indirectly, in your daily life. Don’t stand around if you can walk around. Walk around while you’re on the telephone. A long conversation will give you a good workout! Don’t sit if you can stand. If you can stand comfortably, you will burn more calories doing so than if you were to sit. If you have a job where you sit the whole time, stand up and stretch or walk around every half hour or so. Don’t lie down if you can sit. Cleaning, cooking, gardening and other such domestic work can also help trim inches off your waistline!
