You don't need to join a gym to be active. In fact, you don't need to leave home. Here's how to include more physical activity in your daily routine: 1. Do your chores. Vacuum vigorously. Or head outside and do some gardening. 2. Play ball. Shoot baskets in the driveway; play kickball or tag in the yard. 3. Take a walk. Or take your bike for a spin around the neighborhood.
