It's day 9 of the Renew Challenge.
Every little bit helps because life-extending benefits of physical activity add up. One study found that short bursts of vigorous exercise are just as good as longer bouts of exercise.

Here are some other ideas:
- Try using a standing desk
- Move every 90 minutes to help shift energy levels
- Take 5 minutes to go outside during lunch
- Do some squats, lunges, or wall push-ups during a conference call
