  1. Stop driving to lunch… get outside and walk. Winter is here and believe it or not that’s created more opportunity for you to burn some extra calories. Your body has to work hard to stay warm, requiring more energy (calories) to be expended to do so.
  2. Bring homemade food to work. Eating out is expensive and it often seems impossible to find anything truly healthy out there. You’ll save some money, possibly learn to cook, and feel better.
  3. Take the stairs. This seems so obvious but how many of us actually do it? Take a short break every hour and climb top to bottom and even circle the building a few times.
  4. Drink more water. Water helps facilitate digestion, flush out colds, keep you awake, relieve a hangover, and keeps you hydrated so you don’t feel the need to reach for the sugary drinks!
  5. There are lots of exercises you can do right at your desk. Here’s 10 of them: http://time.com/4019563/exercise-work-desk/
