Weight Loss Tip #9: Wash Something

There is nothing better than killing two birds with one stone, or simply multitasking and being successful. Many times we think that burning calories means we are strictly in our workout clothes in a gym. This is not the case however, as you can burn calories simply by cleaning your home! Doing simple tasks daily can help to burn calories without even knowing it.

The Tasks

Tasks such as window washing, sweeping, washing dishes, vacuuming, mopping, carrying groceries in, and moving furniture around are all calorie torching activities. Don’t forget cleaning the car, scrubbing the bathroom, changing lightbulbs, doing laundry, reorganizing books, and shredding junk mail all fall into this category too! Some may say, these are everyday chores but they are so much more than that! By simply getting active around your home you can burn calories and lose weight. Whether you know it or not, blowing drying your hair for 35 minutes can torch up to 100 calories, since keeping your arms up is quite the chore! Last but not least scrubbing (anything!) will help you torch calories, and sculpt your arms in the process.

Not only will you feel rejuvenated, and maybe a little tired but you will have burned calories as well as tidied up your living space or car. These small tasks de-stress your life because you are more organized and put together which clears your mind up to focus on more important things in life. Now get out there and start cleaning, your body and your mind will thank you for it!
