  • Rearrange the furniture
  • Yoga
  • Bowling
  • Lifting weights
  • Visit a roller skating rink
  • Turn on some music and dance
  • Exercise at a local school, church or gym
  • Walk around the mall
  • Visit a museum
  • Do jumping jacks or run in place while you watch TV 


  • Build an obstacle course with couch cushions, pillows, etc.
  • Make chores fun by seeing how fast you can clean the house, or sing and dance while folding laundry

  • Tape yarn in between hallways and try to ninja your way through them

Remember, always warm up before you start in order to avoid injury.
