Why Movement Matters

If you’ve been inactive, particularly during the COVID pandemic, you don’t need a hardcore workout regimen to get some health benefits.

Establish Short-Term Goals

Track your steps

Use your smartphone or wear a pedometer and aim to get more steps in your day. While eventually, it’s ideal to get 10,000 steps in a day start small. From walking your dog to climbing the stairs to taking a mid-day hike, you can start racking up the steps.

Get a standing desk

If you work from home, consider getting an adjustable standing desk that allows you to alternate between sitting and standing throughout your day. You can dance, march in place, do leg lifts, or other types of exercise while you work—a win-win!

Set Yourself up for Long-Term Success

Choose a form of exercise you’ll stick with

Whether you like to do yoga, run, CrossFit, cycle, or power walk, selecting a type of exercise you enjoy is critical. That’s because you’ll be more likely to stick with it over the long run.

Find a workout buddy

Enlisting your spouse, SO, or friend as a workout partner can go a long way toward keeping you on track. That’s because when you’re accountable to someone else, you will likely meet your exercise commitments.
