Secrets of Success

Parking Far From The Door



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.

More Information:

When everyone else takes the escalator I run the stairs and beat them to our destination:)

  • Hi, I do exactly what U do, especially a bad weather day. I go to the mal & I park at the back entrance of Macy's, & walk to the other end of the mall. In the course of the time spent there, I walk over 10,000 steps. I take the stairs, never use the elevator. I speed walk, & wear my wrist weights, & make sure I wear something /w/ pockets, so I can hold my keys & money. I want my hands free, so I can benefit from my workout. There are water fountains all over the place, so I'm set. This is my favorite place to be on a nasty weather day.
    I do this mainly on rainy days.
