Step Lively!

Ideally, you should take a minimum of 10,000 steps each day. That might sound like a lot, but break it up into smaller, more manageable steps, suggests, a health education company. Instead of sending a quick email or instant message, walk over to your co-worker's desk. Bonus points if you take stairs to get there! Use your lunch or other breaks as a chance to take a walk. An electronic fitness tracker, such as a pedometer or a wristband, can help to track your daily steps and easily hold yourself accountable.

Your Check-up Checklist

Before going to see your doctor for your next check-up, here are four things you should do, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. First, review your family's health history and let your doc know if certain illnesses run in your family. Second, check to see if it's time for you to do any general screenings or vaccinations, such as a mammogram, Pap test, prostate or colon cancer exam. Third, write down a list of issues and questions you have about your physical, mental, or emotional health to discuss with your doctor. Finally, talk with your doc about anything you are planning to do in the future that might affect your health, such as cosmetic surgery or a weight loss program.

Too Busy to Exercise?

150 minutes (that's 2 hours and 30 minutes) of exercise each week. To get this amount of physical activity in, spread your workouts throughout the week. Just exercise moderately or vigorously in 10-minute bursts, suggests the CDC.

Take a Stand

Some companies will give employees desks that convert from sitting to standing. It doesn't hurt to ask, suggests, a health education company. If you don't have that luxury, get creative! Have a conference call? Take a break from your chair. It's just as easy to stand and talk as it is to sit and talk. Pacing is an even better idea! Throw in some squats, leg lifts or arm exercises and now you're burning calories in a quick, simple way.
