Health Tip: Make TV Time Exercise Time

Health Tip: Make TV Time Exercise Time

05/04/12

(HealthDay News) -- You don't have to give up television watching just to lead a more active lifestyle.

The American Council on Exercise suggests these ways to exercise while you're watching TV:

  • Don't use your remote. Instead, get up off the couch to change the channel.
  • During commercial breaks, walk up and down the stairs, or walk around the room.
  • Work out using a resistance band.
  • Invest in a treadmill, so you can work out while you watch.
  • Iron your clothes while watching.
  • Instead of lounging on the couch, sit on a stability ball.
