Housework: the calorie shrinker!


The very thought of cleaning the house is one of apathy and negativity, right? The thought of exercise can also be lethargy and pessimism, correct? Well fear no more as when you combine the two you’ll find happiness within. There is now a one stop solution to solve all your problems. Housework! Housework is a great method to burn calories and keep the house in tip-top-shape. The average homeowner now spends over 60 hours a month doing household chores with a recent study suggesting that we actually feel empowered by cleaning our own homes as a result of being in control.

This is the perfect fix for those of you who simply do not have the time to take a trip to the gym several times a week. It’s cost efficient too! It is incredible to think that you can burn 130 calories by simply perfecting the beds for 30 minutes. Still a little unsure?  Take a look at the best ways to get lean while you clean in this infographic.
