I enjoy our fireplace at home far more now that I am the primary wood-chopper! While being deliberately inefficient doesn't make sense to me, rethinking tasks so as to make them safer or more effective can accomplish much the same goal. A smaller load is easier on the back, and safer to carry. Walking down the hall to speak with an office colleague is more effective for communication (often) than instant messaging or email. Parking further from the office building allows one to organize thoughts for the day during the walk in, and defuse the tension of the day on the walk back. Isometrics are great when waiting in line or blowing dry one's hair. There are many ways to be thoughtful about adding exercise!
