Walk whenever you can
The secret to burning calories while you walk is all in how you pace yourself. It will take longer to burn 100 calories walking at a slow pace than by walking briskly or climbing stairs. People who climb stairs regularly have greater leg strength than those who use elevators. And as a bonus, taking the stairs can actually be faster than waiting for the elevator.
To burn 100 calories:
1. Walk at a slow pace for 36 minutes. Do this on your lunch break, or have a “walking meeting” and accomplish two things at once.
2. Walk while pushing a stroller on fairly flat ground for 30 minutes.
3. Do some Nordic walking for 27 minutes—using poles while walking makes it a total body workout.
4. Use the stairs for 14 minutes.
