How do I make exercise part of my daily routine?

Some simple steps include the following:

 

  • Use the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Walk instead of driving if you're doing errands
  • Take a 15-minute "walk break" from work to help your heart and relieve stress
  • Find a friend to exercise with you. This provides an incentive on the days you don't want to exercise.
  • Vary your exercise routine
  • Set goals and reward yourself for reaching them.
