In brief: Think "active"
There are many ways to improve exercise and activity in during work.
Some include: taking stairs, parking farther away, walking to your favorite lunch spot, walking to a co-worker instead of using the intercom, hand weights at your desk, stretching exercises when at your desk, or walking for exercise around your work during breaks or lunch. Just keep active!

It sounds corny, but as they say, if it is physical, then it is therapy.

In brief: Daily activities
Make your daily activities more difficult - take the stairs, park further away, bike/ walk to work/ store, sit on a swiss ball/ at your desk and stand up every time you answer the phone, or lunge/ hop/ jump from place to place in your house.
Things like these may seem small and silly, but the increased calorie burn can add up over time. Don't forget a healthy diet!
