You take the elevator when you need to go up a few floors, you get on the little motorized walk ramp at the airport, and you park as close to the front door as possible.
At first glance, choosing these little convenient modes of transportation doesn't appear to make much of a difference in your daily life. The fact is, they do. A flight of stairs burns, on average, 15 calories.
If you're taking stairs at work, the mall or in your home on an average day, that could add up to 225 or more extra calories burned. Walk a bit further to get to the front door when you're shopping and you could burn an extra 30. Forgoing the automatic walkway in the airport -- an extra 100! When given the opportunity, use your body, not the elevator or the car. That's what it's made for.
