Work day physical activity levels increased 8 % or almost 500 extra steps per day on casual Jeans Day vs. when participants wore normal business attire, according to a new research study. When this data was extrapolated over a full year, it was determined that this was enough of a difference to prevent the normal 1-2 pound weight gain Americans experience each year â€" or if we extrapolate even more 10-20 pounds each decade.

Dr. Diet weighs in:

This study really makes you think about how making small changes in what you wear to work or the shoes you have on can really have an impact on the lifestyle you lead and your overall health.

I have many female patients in my practice who wear gym shoes to and from work and leave a pair of heels in their offices. This maximizes their steps taken day to day before and after work.

When traveling whether for work or pleasure, the comfort of your shoes is an important consideration since you’ll most likely be more active as this study found when wearing comfortable shoes.

We talk a lot about getting the best gym shoes for exercising but if you can also find great comfortable shoes (non gym shoes) that you can travel in, wear to work and walk in â€" that’s the best situation of all â€" because then you’ll feel better about getting in more steps during the course of your day’s routine.

When you’re comfortable in what you’re wearing and your feet are happy, you just may be a bit more motivated to take those stairs instead of the elevator. And day after day, week after week and month after month, those extra steps taken do add up.
