January 11th National Take The Stairs Day

Nearly every day we have to make our way up, or down, stairs, or both, sometimes choosing to use an elevator instead to save the wear and tear on our legs. However, that said, walking up and down those stairs is so much better of an option for us. It burns calories, 3 minutes equal 30 calories burned, going up that is) and it does build up muscle and tones us where as the elevator offers little more than a quiet conversation of some “elevator” music! Today always falls on the second Weds. of January so find some stairs and start climbing!

How to celebrate – Ah, find some stairs and start climbing! Make a regular routine out of climbing stairs. You can call this your “Step” program!
