36. Exercise with your family.

Make exercise a family affair. Family time at a premium? Work out with the kids for quality time that does double duty. While adults should rack up at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activities on most days, the kiddies should be shooting for 60 minutes. Everyone in the household would benefit with a game of backyard soccer, baseball, or tag. Shoot hoops, roller blade (don't forget the protective gear), bike around the neighborhood, skip rope, dive in a pool, or build a snowperson. Don't have kids? Bring out the kid in you by enjoying some of these fun, childhood memories. Come on -- when was the last time you made a snow angel?
