When I drive to work or a store I find one of the furthest parking spots from the door and then I feel it adds steps and walking to my day. Also using stairs instead of escalators or elevators adds extra steps.
When everyone else takes the escalator I run the stairs and beat them to our destination:)

I work in an busy ICUand sometimes it is not easy to go for a lunch break, yet alone a walk. On those days, every time I can I make a couple laps around the unit and run down and back up the stairs. I also park far away from doors when the weather is agreeable.
Doing a little bit every day helps keep me motivated. Little things like parking far from the door or taking the stairs, contribute. Also, I have to cart my kid all over the place. Instead of hanging around doing nothing, I bring my ipod and go for a long walk.211
