How Can You Burn More Calories?
Before there were gyms, spin classes and other easy ways to get your workout done, people stayed in shape without having to worry constantly about getting enough physical activity. They walked to most places because cars didn’t exist. They did the laundry and the dishes by hand because there weren’t machine options for these chores. They took the stairs because elevators and escalators weren’t invented.
While modern day inventions help to make our lives easier, they do not help us when it comes to weight loss. Here are some ways to burn more calories.
The next time you have the choice of taking the stairs or the elevator, you should opt for the stairs. If your destination is on a top floor, just take the stairs for a portion of the trip. When it comes to using an escalator, you should walk up the escalator instead of waiting for the ride. You’ll get to the top faster and you’ll also burn more calories. If you take mass transit, consider getting offer a stop earlier and walking the rest of the way. If you drive to the store, select a parking spot that is further away from the store. If you need to visit a friend’s house nearby, consider walking instead of driving if your destination is closeby.
The truth of the matter is that you can burn a lot more calories if you just opt to do something the old way. Over time these calories add up. Even if it is just a few calories per day that you burn, in one year’s time that can add up to a few pounds lost.
