(HealthDay News) -- Struggling to fit in 30 minutes of daily exercise?

The American Heart Association recommends you:

  • Go for a walk. Take the dog or child, or head to the mall and do laps while you window shop.
  • Get together a group of friends for a team sport or exercise.
  • Walk while you're talking on the phone.
  • Park further from the door at work or while running an errand.
  • Skip the elevator in favor of the stairs.
  • Throw an impromptu living room dance party.
  • Follow up a healthy dinner with a short walk instead of dessert.
