Use the stairs
Instead of taking the elevator, try climbing three flights of stairs to your office. This simple routine not only helps you burn calories, it improves your cardiovascular health and provides a weight-bearing exercise for healthier bones.
A 150-pound person can burn 10 calories a minute climbing stairs, according to the Calorie Control Council (CCC). This may not sound like much, but every flight you climb adds up throughout the day. An hour of stair climbing would burn 600 calories.
