One way to cut out the boredom of commercial break is to do some sit-ups. Each time a commercial comes on you can get down on the floor next the bed or the couch and do 20 sit-ups. Ten to start if you’re out of shape. Put your hands behind your head, just touching it though. Be careful not to cradle the back of your head. And with your knees bent, do 2 sets of 20 each time there is a commercial.
