Now some of you just might be saying that walking to work is impossible!  But there are ways to get in a bit more exercise in the workday just the same.

Too far to walk?  If you use public transportation, get off the bus, train, or subway a few stops earlier and walk the rest of the way.  Driving?  Park your car a few blocks away and walk it!

    Thanks so much for the feature. I live in Missouri, USA and walk to work everyday but I don’t have very far to go 🙂
