Are you one of the many who made a New Year’s resolution to get or remain healthy? If so, and you’re looking for something you can do that takes no special equipment or preparation, then National Take the Stairs Day is for you! The day is meant to encourage everyone to improve their health by walking up the stairs. Walking up and down stairs is a non-impact activity that most of us can do. It helps us tone our muscles, maintain or even lose weight, and contribute to cardio-vascular health. Did you know that a 160–pound person who climbs for three minutes, expends approximately 30 calories? Discover and enjoy the health benefits of taking the stairs today. Then, make it a daily habit! National Take the Stairs Day is usually celebrated on the second Wednesday of January each year.
