    What to do: For the next 7 days, take the stairs instead of the escalator every opportunity you get

    If you want to lose weight and firm up your body, there's no question that hitting the gym is a smart move. But in your mission to get in more gym sessions, don't forget the everyday. Think about all the many ways that you can get active throughout the day that will encourage a higher calorie burn and move you one step closer to success.

    Far too many people overlook just how much little bouts of exercise can add up. If you're serious about making progress, you need to get serious about being more active overall.

    The first and most commonly recommended way to get more exercise is to take the stairs more often. Walking up a flight of stairs can burn up to 10 calories, so if you do this ten times throughout the day, that's an additional 100 calories burned.

    Do this for one month and you've almost lost an entire pound of body fat.
