If you're getting on an elevator to transfer 1 or 2 floors... look down. Do you see 2 legs? Two feet? At least 1 hand to hold a handrail? Do they all work? Then TAKE THE STAIRS!
Really, an elevator should only be used if you're unable to use the stairs. As in... physically handicapped or too hammered.
Also, if you look down and DON'T see any feet... but you know they're there, you should be using the stairs as often as possible.
Walking up stairs burns more calories than walking down a flat hallway because you must hoist your body weight from one stair to the next. Climbing stairs works your glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and calves.
Potential: A 150 lb. person who walks up three flights of stairs six times a day can burn 32,850 calories in a year. That’s enough to lose more than 9 pounds in one year, just by skipping the elevator.
In the new world, elevators will be treated the same as handicap parking. Reserved for people who fall into one of the following categories:
Handicapped, Transfers greater than 10 floors or impaired.
|Stairs! HA HA HA HA.... Stairs.|
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
