Take the stairs.
I realize many of us may not work in an environment that requires being on multiple floors, but for those who do, hear me out. As important as long, strenuous bouts of exercise are, it is equally important to incorporate exercise throughout your day rather than all at once. This approach complements our physiology’s natural process by extending the positive effects of exercise throughout the day, because the threshold to receive those benefits is lower than you might think. Experts believe that climbing just eight flights of stairs a day lowers average early mortality risk by 33%, and just two minutes extra stair climbing a day is enough to stop average middle age weight gain.
How simple is that? It’s not rocket science to incorporate this tip. Make a conscious decision to get exercise in random moments. Another example of how you could do this is choosing to park in the back of a parking lot and walking a bit to your destination.
