Home Maintenance: The Best Cost Free Workout

In our busy lives, setting aside time to exercise often gets pushed aside in favor of more important tasks. But what if you could tackle all of your responsibilities around the house while also getting a workout? It’s true! Chores as simple as doing laundry, walking up and down the stairs, and cleaning out the rain gutters can have a huge impact on your body. In a positive way! Did you know that you can burn up to 400 calories JUST by mowing the lawn? And nearly 600 calories by shoveling snow from your driveway! Two birds with one stone, if you ask us! So, next time you find yourself feeling guilty for not hitting the gym that week, sit back and think about all of the household chores you’ve done and give yourself a pat on the back. For a better idea of tasks that double as workouts, check out this awesome infographic by GreenPal!
