Day-To-Day Part 2
Little things mean a lot – by changing the way you work and by doing small but frequent movements, you can burn a lot of calories and improve your fitness.
- Fidgeting can burn an extra 350 calories a day. Rapidly tapping your feet, talking with your hands, and chewing gum, all count
- Stand whenever you can. You'll burn more calories than sitting, as many as 50 more an hour for a 155-pound person
- Laugh often. It tightens your stomach muscles, exercises your diaphragm, works your heart, relieves stress and gives you a better outlook on life
- Deep breathing helps you relax and lowers heart rate. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth
