Lahore (Web Desk): It can be hard for people to properly exercise or workout in the gym or a run around the park in hectic and tough routine.

Engaging yourself in incidental activity can help to boost your energy and keep your metabolism going. Taking the stairs is one of the common incidental activities for busy people. Opt for the stairs wherever possible, rather than the lift or escalators.

Health experts suggest that walking up 400 steps has the same effect as going for a 15-minute jog. It boosts circulation and stamina and strengthens muscles in the buttocks, thighs and calves.

Interval training is also an option; take one flight of stairs slowly, then the next flight as fast as possible. Or take two steps at a time!
