3 Ways to Burn More Calories at Home

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most people are interested in losing weight. Whether you need to lose 10 pounds or 50 pounds, the most important thing you can do is burn more calories than you take in. While a good diet and proper exercise routine will definitely get you moving in the right direction, finding small ways to burn more calories can make the process faster. Take a look at these three ways to burn a few more calories every day and get to your dream body faster than ever.

Clean More Often

No one really likes to clean, but we definitely like the end result. If you want to burn more calories at home do a little more cleaning everyday. Sweep the floor a few more times, mop everyday instead of every other, scrub the sink after every meal. While this may not sound like fun, it will definitely burn more calories and you'll wind up with a sparkling clean house to boot.

Do Your Own Yard Work

Some people love yard work and others hate it. If you're in the hate it camp, you probably pay someone else to mow your yard, weed your flower beds, and perform other typical yard work duties. But if you want to burn more calories, try taking on these tasks yourself. They won't be fun, but you will get in a good workout without ever leaving your house. Mowing, raking, and planting all burn calories. If you hate the thought of doing your own yard work, just ease into it. Pick up only one task at a time until you're finally doing all of it yourself.

Keep Your Vehicle Clean

Keeping vehicles clean tends to fall into one of two groups. You have those who always keep a spotless car and those who practically live out of their car. If you're in the second group, keeping your car clean can definitely burn some calories. Take out all of the junk, vacuum the floors, clean the seats, and even wash the outside. If you do this once a week, you may burn up to 500 calories just from keeping your vehicle clean, and along with the very welcome calorie burn, you also have a spotless car to enjoy.

Burning more calories may sound like a difficult task, but it may not be quite as hard as you think. Use these activities to increase your caloric burn without ever leaving your property. You'll find that these bring benefits to your health and benefits to your home all at the same time.
