Being More Active Part 4

Don’t let bad weather slow you down.
  • There are many ways to be active at home:
    • if you have stairs—make a few extra trips.
    • if you don’t have much room, you can run or march in place.
  • Grab an umbrella and a friend and go for a walk in the rain or walk at the mall.
  • After a brisk walk in cold weather, treat yourself to a nice, hot cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
  • If the weather is cold, dress warmly—wear layers and a hat and gloves.
  • If it’s hot, swim, take a brisk walk in an air-conditioned building, or walk first thing in the morning or in the evening in a well-lit area.
  • If you are active outside in the heat, drink plenty of water.

Being More Active Part 3

Find tricks to help you stick with it.
  • Pick activities you really enjoy!
  • Get your friends and family to join you.
  • Set simple goals and work up slowly. Reward yourself when you stick to your goals.
  • Try something new.
  • Find a walking buddy—you will not want to let your buddy down if you know they are counting on you.
  • Instead of trying to add extra activities to a busy schedule, make work time (at home or on the job) work for you:
    • look for chances to move a little more or a little faster.
    • at break or lunchtime, go for a quick walk.
