Secrets Of The French #5: They Always Take The Stairs

This Sparked Me!

In France, taking the stairs is an everyday part of life. (Many public places, even the Paris Metro, do not have escalators or elevators in some parts!) In the US where we have stringent ADA regulations, elevators and escalators are everywhere and so is the temptation to take them. Ignore it! Stairs are great, free exercise. If it's too many flights for you to handle, aim to do at least half and take the elevator the rest of the way.

MORE INFORMATION:
My fiance is French, and I spend several months of the year in France. I am intrigued by how French women are incredibly slim without dieting, so I wanted to share some of their secrets with you.
