We all know the benefits of eating a balanced diet and exercising, but sometimes… Cake! Cake! Mmm … And lie down, yes. There are several clever ways to burn calories at the usual household chores and not only.
Excuses that you don't go to the gym, because "you need to find time, and then go there all uphill, but against the wind and barefoot in the snow" are not applicable here.
To work, to the store, to visit - do not be lazy and walk two or three bus stops on foot. Walking is a great, affordable way for everyone to keep fit. You will be surprised, but often we spend as much on waiting for transport and a trip as on a walking tour.
2. HOME CLEANING
This is not everyone's favorite activity, so try to enjoy the knowledge that you are doing light fitness along the way. Wiping dust, bending over and unbending, wringing out rags with your hands, you train muscles for free, but at home, and not under the guidance of a trainer.
3. MORE WORDS
Did you know standing up burns 50% more calories than sitting down? The next time you're on the phone with friends or family, get up and walk around the room instead of sitting in a chair.
4. IN FRONT OF TV
Although with every cell you actively empathize with what is happening on the screen, the muscles at this moment are practically inactive. No, we are not talking about jaw muscles now, eating while watching is harmful.
Why not roll off the couch to the floor and watch TV while stretching and changing positions? Stretching your muscles relieves stress, and as ironic as it may sound, lying on a hard floor costs more calories than sitting on a soft couch.
5. GET ON YOUR BIKE
Don't feel like leaving the house because the surroundings are already boring? Take a bike and go for a walk where you have not walked before. During a regular walk, you will burn more calories and get a lot of new experiences.
