Don’t Ride. Walk!

When it comes to weight loss, Americans generally are cursed by their jobs.

Sure, you have construction workers who move around all day, and probaly burn tons of calories that way. But most folks get more exercise walking to the shower in the morning than they do at work.

They climb out of bed, sit in their cars on the way to work, sit at their desks all day, sit in their cars on the way home, sit down to eat, sit on the couch to relax, and climb into bed again.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a sedentary lifestyle, and most Americans live it every single day.

One of the easiest thing for offer workers to do to break that cycle has been around for as long as there have been people. WALK!

When you have the choice, take the stairs. If you work on the sixtieth floor, get off at 55 and walk the rest of the way up.

Walk to lunch instead of taking a cab, or riding with friends. If that means you have to eat at a place closer to work, so be it. This is your health we’re talking about.

Rather than parking yourself in front of the television set at night, go for a walk with your family. Just 15-30 minutes is a great way to start, and it has wonderful health effects.

You won’t lose weight just sitting there. Choose to move when you can. Your body will thank you for it.
