while you're walking, wear a SportCount so you can see how many minutes a day you devote to the activity.
*Never sit while talking on the phone. Instead, walk around your home if you have a portable phone, and if not, pace back and forth.
*Plan events around walking. For example, rather than meeting friends for coffee or lunch, suggest meeting at the public gardens for a stroll.
*When watching television, always get up and move about during commercials.
*Take the stairs.
*Divide your lunch hour in two: 30 minutes of eating, 30 minutes of walking.
*Locate the outdoor mailbox closest to your home, and get in the habit of walking to it to send off your bills or letters.
