Increasing everyday activity

I strive to avoid elevators, conveyor belts, etc.  But here in the airport yesterday, we can see that few folks choose to walk.  Granted, when in a hurry, the conveyor belt may be faster.  But I challenge myself to beat the folks on the belt.  It’s fun and I get a little burst of exercise.

Since I travel a fair amount, this exercise adds up.  As yesterday’s post suggests, reduced physical activity at work may be part of the reason we’ve become more obese as a society.

Let’s commit to taking the stairs for the next week!  Starting with 1 flight up, or 2 flights down, even if you then take the elevator the rest of the way.
