Dressing down at the office seems to help people stay in shape by making it easier to fit more physical activity in during the work day.
The American Council on Exercise found that when people dress casually they take more steps a day.
That could add up to a couple of pounds of year. That's about how much the typical American gains each year without
doing anything= so you could offset that by dressing down on Fridays.


The theory is the more comforable your shoes and clothing are, the more likely you are to walk and move around- and maybe even visit the gym.
