Exercising is tough. Errands are also tough. Circling a parking lot to find the closest spot possible is commonplace. Wait, what?! Why do we all do this? I have actually spent a lengthy amount of time waiting to find a parking spot that is 2 spaces closer. And I preach exercising to my child. This week’s Friday Fitness Tip is to “Park Farther Away On Purpose.”
When pulling into work, park at the far end of the lot to maximize your steps into and out of the office. Maybe even get a little trot going when leaving work since it’s a Friday. Just imagine this… parking 10 spots further away can help you burn an extra 10 calories every time you walk from your car to your destination. Do that a couple of times a day and enjoy that extra glass of wine on the weekend.
