Move Well       Benefits of Physical Activity


We get it. Sometimes you want to sit down on the couch and unwind in front of your TV. That doesn't mean you have to give up physical activity.

Here are a few simple ways to keep you moving during your favorite TV show and on commercial breaks. #TryThisAtHome

1. Couch Dance Party: Commercials are set to some funky music. Feel the groove and let the music move you. Release some stress and unleash a wave of giggles. Continue for the entire commercial break. 

2. Couch Squat: Keep your eyes on the screen while you fit in a few quick squats. Stand with feet together. Bend your knees so your thighs are almost parallel to the ground. Hold for 15 seconds and release. Repeat for 4-6 reps.

3. Tricep Dip: Sit on the floor and place hands on the edge of the couch. Straighten your arms and then bend to reach a 90-degree angle, hold and re-straighten. Complete 8-10 reps.
