One of my coworkers, due to advice from her doctor, began to work her recommended dose of exercise into her daily routine successfully by making small shifts to her daily life. It makes sense – especially to some of us that are pressed for time already. Here is how it all began for her.

Instead of parking byrepparttar 150052 front door torepparttar 150053 office, she would park atrepparttar 150054 other end ofrepparttar 150055 parking lot.

When she left for lunch, she would go three or four times as far as what she would have normally walked in a day – and work was justrepparttar 150059 start. When she went torepparttar 150060 mall,repparttar 150061 grocery store or any errand, she made it a point to park further away and get a little walking in.
