I lead an active life.
I look for ways to burn more energy throughout the day. I reduce the amount of time that I spend sitting.
I stick to my workout program. I condition my heart and build my muscles. I develop a variety of activities that I enjoy. I run outdoors and on the treadmill. I lift weights and go to CrossFit classes. I do yoga and play sports.
I stand up while I am doing my usual tasks. I get on my feet while I brew coffee and talk on the phone.
I take more steps. I walk to work or ride my bike. I park further away from my destinations and travel the last distance on foot. I take the stairs instead of using the elevator or escalator.
I share my active lifestyle with others. I invite family and friends to work out with me. I sign up for group fitness classes. I chat with others online about my fitness goals.
I reorganize my home and workspace. I use my environment to create triggers that remind me to move around. I type at a standing desk and sit on an exercise ball. I keep a jump rope in my living room and do exercises during TV commercials.
I have fun. I treat my workouts like a game. I play music and dance around.
Today, I squeeze more exercise into my schedule. I engage my body and mind. I sit less and move more.
