- Replace the car or public transport by your legs. Walking or biking will help you maintain a healthy weight.
- Decrease sitting time during the day. For example, stand up every time you talk on the phone in the office. Other daily activities can also be done on foot: meetings, coffee…
- Use technology to be more physically active. Generally we assimilate the technological development with the increase of the physical inactivity.
