Drink Water First Thing in the Morning! Here’s 10 Amazing Benefits You Get

Take a Stand
Jobs that involve sitting for large chunks of the day may have a negative impact on your weight. If this is the case for you, make sure to stand for 5 to 10 minutes every hour and get up and move around for 10 to 15 minutes every two to three hours.

Here are a few more ways to incorporate NEAT (nonexercise activity thermogenisis–everyday activities) moves into your day. Talk to your [Real Appeal] coach to come up with more. And remember, skip the dress shoes or stash a pair of walking shoes in your desk. You’ll be more likely to get moving if you’re wearing comfortable clothes and shoes.

Don’t be a parking spot snob
Forget about snagging the closest spot. The more you move, the more you burn.

Make an early exit
If you commute by mass transit, get off a stop early and walk the rest of the way. You can also skip the seat and stand for at least part of your commute.

Ditch your desk chair
Speak with your human resources department about the possibility of ordering a standing desk.

Embrace your inner kid
Instead of sitting and watching your kids play, push them on the swing or try the monkey bars.

Do your chores
Vigorous household tasks like cleaning, yard work, and organizing the garage burn a lot of calories.

Count on it
Use a pedometer to see how many steps you’re taking daily. Set weekly or monthly goals for yourself or challenge a fellow Real Appeal group member to a contest.
