Many of us spend 3 to 4 hours in front of the TV every day. When we’re watching TV, we’re not only being inactive, we often snack on unhealthy foods at the same time. Trade TV, computer and phone time for physical activity. Walk, run, bike, dance, or play instead, and limit TV to two hours or less each day.

Try being active while watching TV! Do crunches or situps, use weights, or stretch and tone on a mat.
