Every Extra Step Helps

Christian Hospital Lifestyle Guide -- Hide the remote!Need to add some movement to your day? Try this: Get up at every commercial break and do something until commercials are over: 

  • Dance
  • Do some abdominal crunches 
  • Walk upstairs and back down a few times
Any activity is better than no activity -- just do something. Get the whole family involved.  Let each family member choose a different activity at each break. It will be fun and won’t seem like exercise.

Next, hide the remote control or keep it next to the TV. You heard me -- get up, walk over and switch the channel or change the volume using the buttons on the TV just like in the olden days.  Every extra step helps.
