    Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hey!

    Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Thanks
    Have a great day!

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Good morning Nancy!

    It depends. I hate waiting for elevators. Because I’m so impatient I will oftentimes find the stairs and use them instead. If the elevator door opens quickly I’ll hop on that particularly if I’m at a hotel and have a lot of luggage to take up.

    Thanks for the fun forum topic!

    Hey Nancy,

    When I first get to work I take the elevator up 5 flights to get to my office. Throughout the day when I have to talk to other employees that are on different floors, I then use the elevator unless I'm carrying something large from floor to floor.

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    I take the stairs because it is always faster. If I lived in a big city where the buildings were all thirty stories high, it would be another matter. But in this neck of the woods, we're never talking more than 2-3 flights. To top it off, I'm mildly claustrophobic, I dislike elevator chit-chat and then there is the exercise factor. The stairs have a lot going for them. Interestingly, when I have the choice I'll take the escalator rather than the stairs. But in that case I'm not closed in, I don't have to talk (or not) and it's an adventure, especially at the end when you step off.

    Hey Nancy,

    I hate to admit that I actually do take the elevator over the stairs the majority of the time. My knees bother me at times unfortunately.

    I do, however tend to park far away in the parking lot and walk for exercise.

    Thanks for the forum and have a good one!

    Hi Nancy,

    I have been focusing lately on taking the stairs instead of the elevator. And I've been doing really well with it! My office is on the 4th floor and I take the stairs every day. This week when I was out on the road for work, my hotel room was on the 3rd floor. The only time I used the elevator was when I was bringing my suitcase in and out. Other than that, I chose the stairs.

    I don't work out (I've never been interested in working out, nor do I have the time!) so I guess this is my way of getting at least a little workout in! A couple weeks ago I was walking into work with a coworker who takes the elevator, and I could have easily gone with her to continue our conversation, but I chose not to. I let her know I'd meet her at the top, because I didn't want to break the habit I've created. I think that the first time I give in and take the elevator, that'll be the end of the stairs! I'll be sure to find an excuse to skip the stairs again the next time.

    Thanks for the post!

    I usually try to take the stairs to get my exercise in, but if it's a really long flight of stairs, then it's the elevator. The only time I will gladly take the stairs is if I don't trust the elevator! If that thing has a history of breaking down, has a squeaky door as it slides open, or shakes a little as it goes up or down, then I'm not taking it!

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hey Nancy,

    For me it depends on how many floors we are talking about and who I am with.It also depends on where because there are some places even though there aren't many floors, I take the elevators such as the hospital or court house. I honestly think both places prefer people to take them because they have them located right by the main entrances. The few times I went to the court house, I really only saw employees using the stairs. As for the hospital, I honesty never paid attention.

    I will choose stairs if there aren't many floors. Even when I was pregnant and walking around campus, I chose the stairs even for my 3rd floor class. But most students used the stairs on campus for classes at least since I'm sure for some dorms they used the elevator.

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hi Nancy,

    I take the elevators more because I have bad knees, especially going down the stairs. I would like to try and start going up the stairs and only taking the elevators down so I can get more exercise though.

    Have a great day!

    Hey,

    It depend, if the stairs are more than two then I'll take the elevator to save my breath lol. But I don't mind the stairs since it's healthier.

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hey!

    I like to take the stairs to at least get some exercise in througout the day lol

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hi Nancy! It really depends on my mood and what I am doing. Ohh and the elevator! One of the elevators at work I have been stuck in twice, so I don’t use that one!

    Have a great night!

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hi,

    I try to take stairs as often as I can. Although at times I feel the elevator is a safer choice when I am by myself.

    Thanks for the forum,
    Karen

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Aloha Nancy,

    I typically take the elevator if it's an option, excepting if my destination is only on the second or third floor. However, if I have heavy baggage accompanying me, I'm likely to wait for the lift even in those circumstances.

    Nice forum topic-- not something I think about too often.

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hey,

    I usually take the elevator compared to the stairs. Especially if I’m in a hurry the elevator is usually faster. If If i have to take the stairs than I will, but I prefer taking the elevator.

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    If I have a lot of things to carry I'll probably take the elevator, even if it's just up one floor. Typically though I will go up to 4 flights before I consider using an elevator. I like to pretend it counts as exercise for the day lol

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    hi! I've learned that as I've gotten older I use the stairs more but when I was younger I used elevators more!

    Re: Do you take the elevators or stairs more?

    Hi!

    I definitely take the stairs more than I use elevators. The only place I would use an elevator would be at the mall. I use stairs every single day multiple times a day at my house.
