This elementary concept is all too frequently overlooked: when you are taking a trip up or downstairs, bring more than one item with you! It saves time and energy.
If so, put the items in a basket, empty grocery bag or on a serving tray and take them all with you at the same time.
How about the mail? Where do you do your paperwork or store records? Tote the mail there, along with other items that need to be dropped off along the way. This habit will help you to get so much more done with many fewer steps.
