Health Tip: Exercise While You Work

How to stay fit at the office

(HealthDayNews) -- Most people work at a desk at work, but that's no excuse not to exercise. The American Heart Association offers these tips for burning a few calories at the office:

  • Brainstorm project ideas with a co-worker while taking a walk.
  • Stand while talking on the telephone.
  • Walk down the hall to speak with someone, rather than using the telephone.
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Schedule exercise time on your business calendar and treat it as any other important appointment.
  • Get off the bus a few blocks early and walk the rest of the way to work or home.
  • Walk around your building during a workday break or lunch.
