Move More Stairwell Guide Book
is a useful planning tool that provides step-by-s tep guidelines for anyone interested in implementing a stairwell initiative.  Stairwell initiatives promote using the stairs as a way to incorporate physical activity into daily life.
Taking the stairs is encouraged through a  variety  of physical improvements including paint, lighting and artwork, as well as point-of-decision prompts such as promotional signs.

This holiday season, the only thing that should be "stuffed" is the turkey. Many Americans gain between 1 and 5 pounds each holiday season. While it might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds.
The Holiday Challenge runs from November 14 through December 31.
