Many of us are leading increasingly sedentary lifestyles, but simply switching from taking the lift to the stairs and making sure you get up and move regularly can reduce inactivity-related health risks. It can also help build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints, as well as maintain a healthy bodyweight. It can even lead to a weight loss of up to 2.7kg over a one year period.
