3. Take the stairs wherever you go

Often we skip the stairs and enjoy the luxury and painless elevators to the upper floors of our home and offices. Stop doing that! Just take the step and you are easily adding several steps to your daily count. Taking the stairs gives you an easy exercise which otherwise can be tough to perform. There are stairs everywhere and you will not even know that you have burned some extra calories.
