The Top Ten

1 Choose the stairs instead of the elevator.

Burn extra calories and get a good cardiovascular workout at the same time by making stair climbing a regular routine.

That's right, stairs can lose weight and burn calories while the elevator is just a lazy thing to do.

2 Try shadow boxing for 2 minutes if you have a little privacy in your office or have access to an empty conference room.
3 Instead of taking a coffee break, take a walking break.

Yeah, take a walking break to the furthest coffee shop.

Walk outside or do laps around the office or lunch room.

4 Do one-legged squats, holding onto your desk or a table for support

Repeat 5 times on each leg.

5 Walk to work or ride your bike for a workout that saves gas money too
6 Sit on a fitness ball rather than using a desk chair to improve your balance and strengthen your core muscles.
7 Stretch to reduce stress and improve posture

Sit up tall and reach both hands toward the ceiling as far as possible. Hold for 5 seconds, then alternate reaching with each arm.

8 Try to touch your shoulder blades together.

Hold for 5 seconds, then relax.

9 Walk on your lunch hour or, better yet, join a gym and spend your mid-day break getting fit.

That's what I do.

10 Stand whenever you can.
