12 healthy habits - 12 полезных привычек

September - Сентябрь


Сентябрь Тропинка в еловом лесуNew habit: Wear casual clothes whenever possible.

The skinny: No, this is not a joke. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse conducted a study for the American Council on Exercise that showed wearing jeans and other casual clothing to work resulted in an 8 percent increase in physical activity and nearly 500 more steps compared to more formal attire days. Those casual Fridays and Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays translated to an extra 25 calories burned per day, too.

If that seems frivolous, consider the extrapolation from the exercise scientist: Wearing casual clothing every day for 50 weeks of work translates into burning an additional 125 calories per week and 6,250 calories per year. Considering you must burn 3,500 calories to lose one pound, the added activity from casual clothing workdays could potentially offset the average weight gain of 0.4 to 1.8 pounds annually.

Action steps: Make sure whatever clothes you wear most days are comfortable and conducive to movement. You might also look for ways to add steps to your day, such as getting up to ask questions of co-workers rather than e-mailing or scheduling active get-togethers with friends rather than sharing a meal. The truly step-serious would do well to invest in a pedometer (you can get a good one for as little as $20). If you can work up to 10,000 steps daily, you will be doing yourself a healthy turn. The typical American logs about 6,000 steps per day and sedentary individuals record about 3,000 steps.
