One of the easiest ways to burn more calories and be healthier, is by choosing to use your own two feet and walk. Elevators, cars, and escalators, although quite convenient, steal the calorie burning potential that walking so easily provides. Ahhh, the nerve of technology.
If you can walk somewhere instead of driving, do it. If there is a beach, park, lake or trail nearby, go for a quick walk. If you can take the stairs, do it. If an escalator is broken and temporarily stairs, count it a blessing. I am that gal in the airport always taking the stairs with my carry on, that gal who suggests walking to lunch, and that gal who goes for a walk on the beach any chance she gets, rain or shine. And I have no shame in admitting it.
So the question is…where are you walking today?
