Set A Physical Activity Reminder

This tip came from one of my class participants. She makes time for exercise during the day by adding alerts/reminders to her smart phone. She uses these alerts/reminders to take a 15-minute break. During this time she walks up and down the halls or uses the Step platform that she keeps by her desk. For variety, she performs a few of the exercises that she has clipped from magazines. She keeps them posted on the back of her office door. Creating alerts/reminders forces her to accomplish a minimum of 15-minutes of physical activity. This system works as a reminder to stop and move. It also helps relieve stress throughout the day. Physical activity can be accumulated throughout the day. Strive for a minimum of 150 minutes of cardiovascular training a week.
