Sure, you're busy at work. But it may be possible to be more physically active on the job. Consider these ideas: 1. Walk or bike to work. If you ride the bus, get off a few stops early. If you drive, park your vehicle a few blocks from your workplace. 2. Take the stairs whenever you can. 3. Trade your coffee break for a walking break. 4. Start a lunchtime walking group with your co-workers. 5. Look for opportunities to get moving during the day, such as taking a walk around your office.
