Take the stairs to elevate your energy
Mental energy can be hard to acquire in the darker months, unless it comes served in a paper cup with a double shot and a dusting of chocolate.

A recent study of sleep-deprived workers, published in the journalPhysiology and Behaviour, found that 10 minutes of walking up and down the stairs at an easy pace had a more beneficial effect on energy levels than a 50mg shot of caffeine – that’s more than you’d find in a cup of tea and almost as much as an espresso.
