Health Tip: Make TV Time Exercise Time
(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.
