Walk briskly for 10 minutes. This burst of activity will put you halfway toward your 100-calorie goal, says Susan Finn, PhD, RD, LD, chairperson of the American Council for Fitness and Nutrition. No time? Instead of a coffee break, take a stroll around your office or around the block.
Step it up. Get a pedometer and track how many steps you take each day. Then find fun ways to up your count by 1,000 for that 50-calorie burn. Walk letters to a mailbox farthest from your house or walk the perimeter of the store before shopping.
