Did You Know You Can Burn Calories While Decluttering?

Did you know you could burn calories by doing housework and de-cluttering? In an hours cleaning you could burn 500 calories. Polishing, dusting, mopping and sweeping are all great workouts for your arms. Planning your housework so it involves running up and down the stairs can also give you a good aerobic workout.

Instead of using spray polish try using a wax. This is because you will need to rub it much harder and requires more effort to create a shine. Bending and stretching when you make the bed, wash windows or do the laundry are all good for your flexibility. You can create an even better workout by doing more challenging chores around the home such as decorating and moving furniture.

Doing your housework in one burst could produce the same results as going to a gym without the added cost.
