There are several times where you take a shortcut to save on time. But many times, those shortcuts prevent us from getting in a little bit more of exercise.
So next time you have the option of stairs or elevator–choose the stairs. And when you are out shopping, choose that farther parking spot and walk the extra distance. I’ve actually noticed that the farther spots usually save time! You don’t spend all that time driving around or waiting for someone to back-up.
Another option to consider is if you are within a reasonable distance, instead of picking your kids up from school, walk over and meet up with them. Not only will you get in a little exercise but you also get that extra little chat time together. You might even find that it becomes your favorite time of the day.
Whenever you can, go the extra mile and you’ll soon see those calories burning off!
