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.
