To make sure I add plenty of movement to my day, I set an alarm on my cell phone to go off every hour. At that time (it doesn't have to be "on the hour," just once every 60 minutes), I get up from my desk and move around for 5-10 minutes. I work at home, so I use this time to perform housework (vigorously), strip and re-make the beds, take the dog outside and throw the ball while jogging in place, or otherwise physically move my body. The cell phone reminder really helps!
If you work in an office, you could use your hourly break to climb the stairs or step outside and walk around the building. It's surprising how far you can walk in just 5-10 minutes!

Making it EASIER to "Juice" the cell phone RIGHT away!
I get frustrated with trying to put the cell phone cord into the side of the phone to "juice" it up!So, I got a piece of leftover label tape [good adherer!] and taped the gold tape to the CORRECT SIDE of my cell phone cord and a MATCHING PIECE of gold tape to the cell phone itself [where you put it in-because with my eyesight now I can't always see it !]. Now it's EASY to juice up my phone instead of fumbling with it and trying to see which is the correct side to fit it in the phone to
juice it up! Also another tip~as soon as you remove the ignition key from the car, plug your phone in so it will be juicing at night and ready the next day. A simple thing to do ,but I don't always juice it as I drive[ with my preschooler in the car] so this helps me to remember!
