When you get to work, are you always trying to get that spot right by the front? Right in front? Are you really in that big of a rush to get to work? Let's do this. Park awayfrom the front. Walk a little bit further. Park by the last spot. Burn a few more breakfast calories before you get into the office. Burn a few more calories when you walk back to your car later.
How about that favorite restaurant in the city? Are you always spending money on valet parking because you can't find a close spot? How much does that cost? Plus, how long does it take for the valet to get your car after dinner? How about tipping them? Instead of burning your pockets with spending money, let's burn calories by walking a little bit. Park away further from the restaurant. It might be a 5-minute walk. It might be 5-city blocks, but you'll be saving yourself $10-$15 on valet. Plus you'll burn some after dinner calories walking back to your car.
When you go shopping, are you constantly looking for the closest parking spot to the mall entrance? How long does it take to look for a spot? 5-minutes? 10-minutes? Sometimes more? Or you finally see people sitting in their car looking like they're leaving.......but they're still sitting....still sitting....still sitting not leaving the spot. Seems like a waste of precious shopping time. Why not park away from the mall entrance. Find the first spot and park the car. Think of it this way. Not only will you have more time to shop, you will also be saving gas money driving around looking and looking. Not to mention, you'll burn extra calories walking further to the entrance and back.
Live active. Let's go.
