Positioned comfortably by the TV this wintry evening? Americans, on average, watch nearly four hours of television daily—potentially a lot of sitting time. Yet we all know, fitting more movement into leisure time offers more long-term health benefits. Get more from your TV time today.
- Take a commercial action break! You’ve got 10 to 12 minutes during a 30-minute network show to get up and do a quick household chore.
- Watch a show that “moves” you. Work out with a cable TV exercise program or dance to a televised concert.
- Dust off the exercise bike, put it by the TV. Watching the news while you cycle puts a more positive spin on the day’s events.
