32. Take the Stairs Instead
You should always take the stairs instead of the elevator. You might think: how many calories will I burn from climbing the stairs? Well, within 30 minutes of stair-climbing, you will burn a whopping 500 calories. Now, you won’t reach this time limit all at once. If you are staying at a hotel for the weekend, you can certainly take some steps in this way. You can burn calories from ascending stairs, and descending them, although the first one is more beneficial.
If you end up at the top of the flight of stairs panting a bit, that’s okay. Your heart, thighs, booty, and hamstrings will pulsate with gratitude. Did you know that when you climb the stairs, you can burn twice the fat in half the time? The stairs aren’t going anywhere, but you are! So get going.
