  • Decide that, as long as it isn't raining, you're willing to park in the farthest parking space from the door of your building.

  • Keep a pair of walking shoes in your workspace, and walk during your breaks on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

  • Take an extended walk during your lunch hour on Wednesdays.
