These may seem silly, but the point is that sweating it out at the gym isn’t the only way to improve your health.

  1. Pit yourself against colleagues and have stair races.
  2. Invite a colleague to join you for a walk after lunch
  3. Install a new printer further away from your workspace.
  4. Instead of emailing or phoning, walk over to your colleagues and speak to them face-to-face.
  5. Invite a colleague for a cup of tea or coffee and walk around while drinking and chatting.
  6. Keep moving ā€“ take a break, walk around for a couple of minutes, stretch, take a few deep breaths.
  7. Tidy your desk and empty the trash can outside.
  8. Get a wireless headset for your phone and move around while making calls.
  9. Park your car at the far end of the car park.
  10. Get off the bus, metro or tram a few stops earlier than usual and walk the remaining distance.

Doing some small things consistently has been shown to reap substantially cardiovascular benefits.
