To help ease traffic and help the environment, society has trumpeted the benefits of public transportation. But I have another idea. Think about how close your office is to you. If you live within a mile or two from work, have you considered walking or biking to work? I've tried it, and I'm loving it. I'm shedding inches, toning up, getting out into the great outdoors....and saving money on gas, another great benefit, especially now! Plus, by driving less, you're helping the environment. It's a simple, beneficial way, to improve your everyday life.
