When it comes to exercise and weight loss, every bit of daily movement can help you towards your goals. And one of the easiest ways to get more exercise into your daily routine is through “baseline movement”, which is a small amount of additional motion performed throughout the day while doing things like standing to talk on the phone, or while working.
Your Weight Matters tells us:
Many health professionals will tell you that in order to have a healthy lifestyle, you must schedule exercise into your daily tasks. For instance, you might be told to take the stairs, park farther away from the building you’re headed to, etc. These might be things we think about doing occasionally, but often we don’t find the time to do them. But when you incorporate movement into an already established routine and don’t have to add in extra time for it, exercise can easily become part of your lifestyle!
