I was listening to ABC Radio this morning, when the announcer Adam Spencer started talking about using the stairs at work instead the elevator as way to increase physical activity. He encouraged his listeners to take the fire stairs on Friday and to report back to him on how many steps they climbed.
I thought that this was a fabulous idea and decided to broadcast it here on my blog.
Here’s the deal. On Friday, shun the elevator and get those legs pumping up and down the firestairs. If you work above level 10, then take the elevator up part way and walk up the rest. If you don’t work in a multi-story office building, then take the stairs at your local shopping centre or train station or wherever you go during your day where you normally take the lift.
On Friday evening, comment on this post and let me know how you all went.
