Think about what you can do to make exercise a way of life. How can you work it into your daily routine? How can you make it more enjoyable? The suggestions below may lead to some ideas of your own.

Make exercise part of your day…

 Start your day with some simple stretches before you get out of bed.

 Go to your favorite store and walk up and down the long aisles.

 While watching TV, stretch your arms and legs.

 Park your car a little farther from a store and walk the rest of the way.

 Take the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator.

 Add up the minutes of moderate activity you do all day.

 Take your dog for a walk in the park.

 Walk through a museum, mall, or zoo with your family.

 Bowl, fish, or golf with friends.

 Put a photo of your kids or grandkids near your exercise spot for motivation.

 Read a book or magazine while you ride an exercise bike.

 Listen to a comedy tape while you exercise.
