Pump At The Pump

You’re on a long road trip and you stop for gas. How long does it take
to fill the tank? 20 seconds? 45 seconds? 2 minutes? Any one of these
time lengths is ample for giving your body its own quick pump of
oxygen and blood that will elevate your metabolism for a significant
amount of time after you leave the filling station. Once you’ve pulled
the trigger on the gas pump, do any of the following until the pump
stops: jumping jacks, arm swings, running in place, torso twists or
push-ups. You can even jog or speed-walk a lap around the service
station. Staying active during your road trip breaks up a stale drive
and gives you far more energy and less drag by the time you actually
reach your final destination.

    I will have to try the walking suggestion as I am a bit too self conscious to do the jumping jacks or push-ups lol!
