Sometimes it's challenging to fit a workout into your day. Consider doing 10-minute chunks of exercise three times a day. Studies show it helps your heart as much as a straight 30-minute session.

Try This: Place one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest. Breathe deeply, exhaling from your diaphragm. When breathing from the diaphragm, your stomach muscles contract rather than the muscles in your chest. Focus on exhaling fully before inhaling again.
