A new study by the University of Georgia reveals that walking up stairs boosts one's energy level more than caffeine. Researchers had people drink coffee and soda while others walked up and down stairs for 10 minutes. The researchers found the walkers had more energy than the caffeine drinkers. Professor Patrick J O'Conner tells the Daily Mail "We found, in both the caffeine and the placebo conditions, that there was not much change in how they felt, but with exercise they did feel more energetic and vigourous. It was a temporary feeling, felt immediately after the exercise, but with the 50 milligram of caffeine, we didn't get as big an effect. You may not have time to go for a swim, but you might have 10 minutes to walk up and down the stairs."
