(HealthDay News) — There are plenty of ways to squeeze in exercise and some social time at work without sacrificing productivity.

The American Council on Exercise mentions these suggestions:

  • Skip the coffee/smoke break and ask a co-worker to join you for a 15-minute walk.
  • If you have a regular one-to-one meeting with a co-worker, make it a walking meeting.
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator, and see how many co-workers will join you.
  • Start up a workplace walking group to walk on breaks, during lunch and after work.
  • Visit a bookstore, gallery or museum for a stroll.
