BURN MORE NINE-TO-FIVE

Because most jobs require less physical activity than they did 50 years ago, we’re missing out on roughly 100 calories of daily burn, which may be expanding our waistlines, new research from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge found.  Male up for that fat-melting deficit with some sneaky strategies:
  • Copy Documents burn 16 calories
  • Stand while filing burn 21 calories
  • Tidy your cubicle and water the office plants burn 26 calories
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator burn 37 calories
  • TOTAL 100 CALORIES BURNED
    • based on a 140 pound woman performing the activity for 10 minutes
