Finding time to exercise can be a challenge. Why not work out while you work? To make office exercise a part of your routine, walk or bike to work, get off the bus a few blocks early, or park farther from the door. Stand while talking on the phone or skip instant messaging and walk to a colleague's desk for a chat. Trade your desk chair for a firmly inflated fitness ball. Organize a lunchtime walking group. Or schedule walking meetings.
