Up And Down Stairs Please
Today is day 1 of the Work (Out) From Home, powered by Humana!
Ditch the elevator and opt for the stairs! How many times do you think you went up and down stairs today? Take a guess, and try to top it tomorrow.
Revving up your heart rate, even just a little bit, is healthy. It teaches your body to move oxygen and blood to your muscles more efficiently. It also burns calories faster and lowers your blood pressure. So, if you feel winded after climbing the stairs — don’t be discouraged! Remember that you’re doing your body good. Do your legs (and heart) a favor and get your blood pumping!
Don’t have stairs nearby? Use the restroom located farthest from you, or try walking at a faster pace. It’s another easy way to fire up your muscles and get your heart pumping.
Tell us how many times you took the stairs or use an app on your smartphone to track how many extra steps you get in here. Better yet show us! Post a video in our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram and tag us with #healthynurse.
