How to Stay Healthy and Still Use the Elevator
If you have to ride in an elevator then you probably want the assurance that it’s safe and you aren’t going to go plummeting down to the bottom. Well, that’s really just in the movies now. Modern commercial elevators don’t rely solely on the pulleys anymore, thankfully. The elevator safety company will usually guarantee their work and any elevator repair as well, if you look at the plaques posted outside and then inside the elevator whether it’s a residential elevator service or commercial one. Now that we know that the elevator safety company isn’t going to send up plummeting to our deaths, let’s look at an interesting take on elevators. You always hear people telling you to use the stairs and the benefits of not taking the elevator. But, what about the advantages of the elevators? They have to serve some kind of purpose of elevator safety company and installation company would be out of business and no one would use them. Even residential lifts are regularly used despite all the advantages of using the stairs. So, let’s find out why.
Remaining Fresh Faced
If you are about to head out for a fancy evening or a date and you happen to live on the 54th floor of an apartment complex, you could use the stairs if you want. But, chances are, by the time you get to the bottom something will have happened since you left your apartment; you will have depreciated in value. There’s no way to stay looking how you did when you left after making your way down 54 flights of stairs. Instead of using your date as a chance to shed some pounds, make sure you work out earlier in the day so that you can feel completely justified in taking the elevator downstairs.
Being on Time
There are so many people in the world that are always late, all the time. For some reason, there’s that group of people that just can not get out of the door on time. It may even frustrate them but for some reason, they can’t seem to change. How much worse would their time keeping be if they had to take the stairs everywhere they went. Let’s say it’s the same person that lives on the 54th floor and then they work on the 12th floor of a sky scraper. They rush out the door, only five minutes late, only to rush past the elevator and down the stairs. They jump in their car, now somewhere in the vicinity of 15 minutes late and speed to work. After parking and running inside, they again pass up the elevator and climb the stairs to the 12th floor. They are now probably 20 or 25 minutes late and not only that but now they look crazy to. If they had just taken the elevator they could have preserved their professional look and only been five or 10 minutes late.
The elevator is a great way to meet people. The movies tell you so. People even meet their soul mate in an elevator from time to time. They generally don’t have a cell phone signal so it’s a great way to force people to engage in small talk. If they don’t, it’s a very awkward ride where people pretend that they have a signal and are surfing the Internet or texting. Keep an open mind when you step in to an elevator with other people, it could be the moment that changes your life. Even if you meet someone on the stairs, there’s no way you will be talking through the heavy breathing, heart pounding and sweating that will no doubt ensue as the two of you share the climb. To make matters worse, you probably don’t want to let on how out of shape you are so you’ll try not to breath to hard and possibly pass out.
Taking the stairs has it’s benefits. But so does the park where you can jog or the gym. You don’t need the stairs to be healthy if you will take part in other daily activity. An elevator safety company didn’t put in all that work for people to just take the stairs.
