I used to "efficiently" take one trip upstairs when taking any items up, but now I make it a point to take one trip for each set of items (so I go up and down the steps more per day).
I park farther away in parking lots to walk more and hopefully less chances of door dings on my car!
I walk the groceries in, one bag at a time, instead of trying to stack them all on my arms to make one trip like I used to do (although that does give you a good workout - ha!)
I'll walk around while things are heating up in the microwave or simmering on the stove.
Just not sure where I could add in more than I already have. . .

Can you take a walk during your breaks? I usually take 20 minute walk on my lunch brek.

I haven't been able to hit 10,000 during my routine during the day. The only way I can do it is to set aside exercise each day, wether it be an hour walk or 40 minute trip to the gym on cardio equipment. I've been told using stairs instead of escalators or elevators, parking your car far away form where you're going, when doing laundry put one thing away at a time (in other words many trips to and from the dryer to the dresser).
