Can You Really Burn Calories By Cleaning Your Home?Slide2
For many of us, the battle against our expanding waistlines is a daily one and often, no matter what changes we make to our diet or how we try to take regular exercise, we continue to gain weight. But what if we upped the ante when doing our cleaning chores around the home and burned calories that way?
Cleaning your home in a lacklustre fashion will not help your waistline to decrease, but putting some energy into it and working up a sweat while vacuuming or mopping the floors, will help you to burn up to as many as 100 calories per chore.Slide3
Shed some weight by blitzing your bathroom:
Cleaning your bathroom thoroughly can really help you to work up a sweat, particularly if you close the windows! For a sauna experience while cleaning, turn on the shower and leave it running to build up a roomful of steam…not recommended for asthmatics though, or anyone with breathing difficulties!
35 minutes of brisk top to bottom cleaning in your bathroom will be just as, if not more effective, than the same amount of time spent on the treadmill, and with cleaning, you’ll have achieved something too.Slide4
Forget about the dishwasher and scrub the dishes yourself:
While it’s all too easy to stash your dirty pots, pans and crockery in the dishwasher, cleaning them at the sink instead will help you burn a few calories, but you have to put some elbow grease into it!
Get the lawnmower out and work up a sweat:
While not technically classed as cleaning, keeping your garden tidy if you have one, can be just as important, especially if you have frequent visitors or your garden can be overlooked by others. Mowing the lawn is a great way of burning calories and helping you to get some good old fashioned fresh air, too.Slide5
However, this is most effective with a mower that you need to push rather than an electric one…
Clean your windows until they gleam and you’re ready to collapse!
Only the very fittest of folks could possibly clean windows without working up a sweat, and if you really put some elbow grease into it and eliminate all the streaks and grime, you’ll find that you can burn a minimum of 100 calories in just 30 minutes. Keep going and clean every window in your home for a beach body in next to no time!Slide6
Vacuum like you’ve never vacuumed before!
While your pets and other members of the household may not enjoy the constant thrumming of the vacuum cleaner; run it around your entire home for as long as the task takes, and you’ll raise your heartrate and burn some calories, for sure.
While it may not seem as fulfilling as a trip to the gym or a swim in the local pool, cleaning your home can be just as effective if you’re trying to lose weight and burn calories, provided you do it with gusto, and on a regular basis.Slide7
