Researchers tell us that it is important to keep moving throughout the day and to find ways to sneak in more steps.

- Carry in grocery bags one at a time. Your neighbors might think you're crazy, but it will add tons of steps in.

Adding more steps
- I take mini breaks from my desk to pray. I walk or pace and pray for loved ones, the nation or whatever God leads me to pray for. By the end of the day, both Spirit, soul and body are at peace!
Additional steps can be added by
- Parking your car further away from the door at work and the grocery store.

What a great idea
- Ok I can't add much but WOW! The simple idea of walking while talking on the phone - brilliant! I mean I'm a woman so I can multi task lol. Waiting for the microwave isn't bad either, but love the phone idea.

Add more steps..
- by walking while you are talking on the phone. I do a circuit from my family room, kitchen, dining room, then living room. Keeps circling until you complete your call. The steps really rack up especially if it's a long phone call! I also march in place while watching tv. You can get a really good workout watching a sitcom!

Walk the building
- Use your break time at work to walk the building. I go downstairs, walk the bottom floor, go back upstairs and walk the top floor. Ten minutes later, I'm back at my desk working.
