Walk on the Phone

Need to talk on the phone? Then walk! It's the Walk and Talk. In other words, if you get a phone call and you know it's going to be a conversation lasting more than 5 minutes, do one of two things: -Start marching in place -Put a leash on your pup and take to the streets for a stroll

If you're not quite ready to walk, ask the caller to ring you back in 5 minutes and make sure you're out the door and on a walk by the time the phone rings. Sure, it makes it so you're a little breathy whenever you're on the phone, but you're burning a few extra calories and slipping in a quick blip of exercise that you normally wouldn't have thought you could fit in.
