Walk and Talk
When you can, take your phone calls on the go. You can even walk during business calls simply by pacing around your office (unless you are video too, of course). Do this during two 15-minute phone calls a day and 100 calories will be gone. Wear a fitness tracker to see how far you can go.
You burn about 10 extra calories for every 10 minutes you stand rather than sit at the office. And the good news is that you don’t need a standing desk to take advantage of the benefit. Ask co-workers if you can hold meetings at a standing location instead of in the conference room. Better yet, take the meeting on the road and solve workplace problems while you walk. You can also stand more at home, like when watching TV or reading. It all adds up!
If you’re really serious about weight loss and want to burn calories fast, jump rope. You only need to jump for seven minutes to blast away 100 calories. You’ll also improve coordination3 and build strength in your lower legs4 at the same time.
