I work in food service so I'm on my feet pretty much all day. When I'm not moving or waiting for food to come up, I try and do a few calf raises. Just stand in place and raise/lower yourself on your tip toes. Speed it up and within a minute or so you will be saying "oh my aching butt"!

I do leg extensions, wall push ups, calf raises, standing hip abductions, downward dog, etc while at work.
It's so easy to slip in these short exercises while on the phone. You don't need any special equipment or much room to do them. I find it's a great way to stay energized and focused through out the day.
When I am doing something like washing my hands or brushing my teeth I walk in place, do calf raises, or simply just bounce. It's little spurts of activity that can add up. Being sure to do a certain number of calf raises while brushing your teeth also ensures you are brushing long enough.
