How to add steps when traveling

Add extra steps when traveling to lose weight.

Here are some easy ways to add extra steps when traveling. Every step you take will move you closer to the recommended number of steps for weight loss.

  • Skip the moving walkways at the airport.
  • Rent a locker for your luggage and walk around while waiting for your flight. (If you’re traveling with others, have them watch your luggage.)
  • Request a second or third floor hotel room and take the stairs.
  • Walk to get your meals instead of ordering room service.
  • Stop at rest areas off the interstate and get out for a brief walk.
  • If you’re using public transportation, request to get off one stop early and walk.

Brainstorm as many ways as possible to add steps to your day whether you’re at home, at work, running errands, or traveling.

You can burn an extra 272-716 calories per week by adding one minute of movement to things you already do. (See: 1-Minute Weight Loss e-book)
