Movement Can Be NEAT

We all know movement is good for both our mental and physical health, but the word "exercise" can bring up feelings of dread. There are many barriers to regular exercise, including (but not limited to) time, accessibility, motivation, and a simple dislike of planned exercise. What if you could get some of the same benefits without doing planned exercise? The below article discusses how increasing NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) can give you some of the same weight management and health benefits of exercise. NEAT is essentially calories burned through activity that is NOT exercise. Doing dishes, parking far away, or taking the stairs all count! How can you add more NEAT to your life?

Could you skip your workout if you build more activity into your day?
