I'm giving up the elevator & walking the 3 flights. I give myself bonus points (i.e., a pat on the back) whenever I use the restroom on a different floor & use the stairs.

Just two minutes of activity raises your heart rate and increases the body's production of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin -- the same substances increased by antidepressants.
