In today’s modern life, life is too busy. People do not have time for their family, their friends and even for their health. We have 100’s of ways to be inactive during the day. We have to spend most of our time in the office while working on the computers. And when we are at home, we do not prefer to do anything for our health, but prefer to utilize our time with TV, video games or computers again.
I made it very clear to you that we cannot lose weight or maintain current weight if we remain inactive like this for the whole day. We have to give at least one or two hours to our health and related problems. With 100's of ways to remain inactive during the day, there are surely another 100’s of ways to remain active as well. We need to find handy methods for burning extra calories. Here I am introducing you some of my favorite small but effective ways of burn 100 calories or so.
- Most of us have a bicycle, which is rarely used. If you are interested in bicycling, doing it for 10 minutes will burn 100 calories for you.
- Find a fitness video that you enjoy most. So following this video workout for 15 minutes will help you in burning another 100 calories.
- Walking is the simplest of activities we can do for burning calories. If we do a brisk walk for 15 minutes that will exactly burn 100 calories for us. Walking is the exercise we can easily apply. We can do it in many ways like going for a morning walk with your friends or your doggy, walk to the office if it is not too far or going to a nearby market while walking.
- Using stairs is also a great way of burn some extra calories. So please do not use elevator and use stairs instead. If we climb stairs for 15 minutes or so, that will help us in burning 100 calories.
- Dancing might look strange to you. But it is also a good way for burning calories. You can do it anywhere where you prefer that perhaps depends upon how good you are in dancing. I himself not a good dancer, do it mostly in my bathroom or in my room with curtains on.
- If you have a car, then wash it at home. Washing it at home will help you health wise and finance wise also. We have to give a lot of physical effort while washing it properly.
- Do you have a small garden? Do the gardening there for making your garden beautiful. When we take care of our garden, we have to spend at least some time there. It will give us a lot of fun, enjoyment, mental satisfaction and helps in burning some useful calories.
- Playing any kind of outdoor game will help you in burning some useful calories. You can try games like badminton, volleyball, Tennis, football or any other outdoor game you prefer.
- We can have some other activities like swimming, bike riding and painting etc for great fun and for burning extra calories.
- If you do the vacuuming work at home for 20 minutes for so, that will help you in burning another 100 calories.
