Take.The.Stairs

PSA from my FitBit

People.

Take.The.Stairs.

If you have little ones, take them with you.

SHOW them how to live a healthier life.

Take them for a walk to the park rather than driving. Get some steps in

Your heart needs you to go first, make the effort, be the one that chooses to do something a little weird.

Make everyone standing around waiting for the elevator squint their eyes as you head for the stairs.

Take an extra minute or so to get your heart rate up because some day you may not be able to…you may not always be able to bound up the stairs like you can today.

Today you can, so please do.

Fitness is a series of small decisions. Life is about choices.

Take. The. Stairs.

Listen folks. I care about you, and I want you to live a better life. I want you to be free from the myriad diseases that accompany metabolic syndrome. I want you to have the energy and capacity to play with your kids, to run if a coyote sets his rabid eye on you one night. You have the power to change your life and it starts by making the tiniest, seemingly inconsequential changes in life. Today you can park a little further from the store, let the other guy have that spot he’s been circling for and you get a couple extra steps in. Your heart will thank you. Your kids will thank you. Future you will thank you.
