How can you make a sedentary job more active? You can carry a pad and pencil so you can brainstorm ideas while taking a walk, or walk to your co-worker's desk instead of calling. Try a "walking meeting" with a colleague. Consider a wireless headset so you can pace while you are on the phone. Use the stairs as much as possible instead of taking the elevator. If you take the bus, consider getting off a stop early and walking the rest of the way.
