New Commitment

8 Aug

As a commuter in and out of San Francisco on a day to day basis, I made a decision in my groggy state this morning…  No more escalators or elevators!  Now this probably doesn’t seem like it would be too hard to do but on my commute I have to take at least 12 flights of stairs to accomplish this new task.

Why am I doing this?

I have a desk job which happens to be in an awesome industry but at the end of the day, I’m not any healthier because I sat at a desk for the day (with the exception of lunch time strolls : ) ).  I want to live a healthy life style and I find by committing to little things along the way (like taking stairs only) will help contribute to a happier life.  This might not work for everyone because they might not have big buildings or huge escalators to avoid but there are always little ways to improve your lifestyle for a healthier way of living!
