Improve your cardiovascular health by skipping the elevator ride and taking the stairs. With zero added time to your daily schedule, you can get a mini workout in every day by this simple tip. 

Ever get that mid-morning or afternoon sluggish feeling? Try replacing your next basket of french fries with a cup of fruit. Expand your lunch options with many different sides such as fresh fruits, salads, or salsas. This could help your sweet tooth, too!
