Hint: You can plug the charger into the USB port on your phone’s car charger, and easily charge up while commuting or running out for an emergency supply of guacamole for your falafel chips.
Tip: This may go without saying, but you are going to be much more successful using your FitBit in conjunction with your iPhone or Android phone, as opposed to merely your tablet, Mac or PC. Be sure to choose the "All-Day Sync" option in the settings, so you get constant feedback.
Okay, you have to sit down from time to time, but try not to if you don’t have to. It’s not as hard as you might think to add more stepping just by avoiding the urge to take a seat. On a conference call? Take it from your mobile phone and walk around throughout the call. If you are the presenter on a web conference, you can still do this as long as you stay close to your screen. Bingewatching your favorite TV series, or spending time watching corporate training? Do it from the treadmill with your tablet and a Bluetooth headset. You would be surprised how many steps you can rack up while gardening and mowing your lawn with a push mower. Even shopping adds steps.
Hint: Taking the stairs at a run burns more calories, but don’t be the jerk that runs up a flight of stairs while someone else is coming down them.
Good luck and be sure to "friend me" on the FitBit app! Have any other tips to share? Please add them to the comments.
