  1. Park a little further away to get in extra steps.
  2. Transit/Bus riders get off one stop earlier and hoof the extra couple of blocks.
  3. Stand while doing usually seditary activity, like talking on the phone or reading reports.
  4. Stairs vs. escalators or elevators. If you do use an escalator walk the steps don’t just ride.
  5. Breathing exercises.  Regular deep breathing can even lead to wait loss.
