When you go to the grocery store walk the longest way you can around the whole store. Than shop for your groceries starting at the back of the store. Even if you do not want any items back there. Than go around the entire store one more time before you check out. When you park your car park it the farthest away from the store so you get a long walk walking into the store. And than a long walk back to your car after leaving the store.

I do not use the elevator even if it's 7 or 8 floors I only use the escalator when I'm with family and friend but I take the alternative stairs when I'm alone in the mall. Yes your suggestions are very helpful for those who want to improve their health provided they have no pre existing health conditions.

With pre existing health conditions you have to always do what is best for you.

Most of the time I get my cart (on wheels) and walk the 3 miles to the grocery store, I love to walk.

@shaggin You are right. However, perhaps I told you already, my physical condition, at this time, are not good. Even the doctor told me, I at the moment, was unable to do any physical activity. Do you remember if maybe I told you about my strange weight loss, still without explanation?

That's great advice. Walking is still difficult though I'm doing better. Right now, I need to park as close as possible because after all the walking I do in the store, I need to be close when I leave.

I do not like this plan at all. Maybe for the exercise part it's good, but my goal is to be as efficient as possible and get OUT of there as soon as possible

We walk around the grocery store when it is cold outside.

My husband does most of the shopping. I walk a good 5 miles a day at the town trails. More scenic and less tempting. lol I park far from stores so no one can hit my cars.

I park away from other cars for the same reason. I though I was the only one who did that. My car is my baby. I paid cash for it and bought it new. I love my Subaru.

@jstory07 Good going! Once my husband squeezed into a tight spot with our brand new and first ever Mercedes right next to an old Cadillac. Of course our door got scrunched up and the Caddy was long gone.

That always sounds like a good idea until you realize that parking that far off could leave you open to muggings.

I have a big truck, so I always park in the back of the parking lot, so I've always gotten a good walk in wherever I go! Plus, I don't like getting stuck behind that one person that blocks traffic because they are sitting there waiting for that one car to pull out so they can get the front row spot.

That is another good reason to park in the back.

The extra walking is good for getting more exercise but bad for people who are trying to save money as they will be more likely to buy more things the more they look at through the store.

what a perfect observation! yes, though I like it because it's a form of exercise already. but then when you go home after grocery shopping you feel so tired already.
