House Cleaning As Exercise


I know it sounds crazy but house cleaning can be fun if you put yourself in the right mindset. Over the last several months there has been a movement to think of cleaning not as cleaning but as fitness for better health. Think of how much walking and lifting you do by the time you get laundry, wash it, fold it and put it away.

I have recently heard of people wearing a Fitbit while cleaning. A Fitbit is a wristband that you can buy for under $50 dollars and it keeps track of your steps. Many people are now using household chores as there daily exercise. Think of how many steps you must do vacuuming, mopping and sweeping.

So the next time you complain about cleaning the house think of all the exercise you are getting because you are a clean person.
