On the quest for greater balance and bliss, my overall fitness and health has been a huge focus. Because this journey can seem so overwhelming, I believe in making small manageable changes to get you closer to your goals. With this, I present to you the first of my Healthy Habits posts. These posts are short, to the point and in most cases very easy changes you can make in your everyday life to improve your overall health.
Healthy Habit #1: Take the Stairs
Taking the stairs sounds simple because it is simple. If you are like me and work in an office building with multi-levels, taking the stairs everyday feels like a mini-win for the morning! To start this habit, every time you are presented with an elevator, look for the stairwell sign and head that way. Bonus points for knowing the safe way out of the building should an emergency arise and you never have to worry about being stuck in a broken elevator or plummeting to your death should the elevator malfunction (kidding of course, but really…it could happen).
Taking the stairs does get easier over time, and if you use a fitness tracker you can log bonus flights and steps. It’s a win-win in my book, and an easy way to build more movement into your day!
