Interesting Ways to Burn More Calories at Work

By Genevieve Cunningham

When we're at work, we're not usually thinking about burning calories. We're thinking about getting the job done and getting ahead. Or maybe we're thinking about going home! But burning calories isn't usually high on the priority list. But what if it were easy to burn calories on the clock? Killing two birds with one stone -- burning calories and getting work done -- doesn't necessarily sound like a bad idea, right? If you like the idea of getting rid of calories with very little thought, take a look at these interesting ways to burn a few calories and get fit and healthy starting now. 

Turn Down the Temperature

Colder temperatures require your body to work more and burn more energy. The body has to use more energy to heat up its internal temperature. And when you use more energy, you burn more calories. Though you don't want to spend your days shivering at your desk, turning down the air just a little might help you burn a few more calories by the day's end.

Tell Some Jokes

You finally have an excuse to crack some jokes on the clock! As it turns out, spending a little bit of time laughing can really burn some calories. And at the same time, you'll also get some extra work for your ab muscles. Take a few breaks to laugh with your coworkers. You'll burn some calories and build some rapport for better health and a better working experience all around.

Chew Some Gum

You won't burn hundreds and hundreds of calories by chewing gum, but you will burn a few extra by keeping a piece in your mouth. And as an added bonus, chewing gum can help keep hunger at bay. You may be able to burn a few calories and prevent yourself from overeating as well. It's a win-win for your diet while on the clock. 

Burning a few extra calories at work won't take the place of your workout, but it can certainly help push you in the right direction. When combined with healthy eating and regular exercise these may be just what you need to meet your goals. Use these little tips to turn up the burn, and boost your health as well as your daily work experience like never before.
