Health and weight loss seem to be on everyone's mind these days. Luckily, there are small adjustments you can make to your every day life to burn extra calories and potentially lose weight without too much hassle. Make these five changes to burn an extra 100 calories a day.
Take a Walk
Instead of surfing the internet during your lunch break, take a brisk 15 minute walk. Just a few minutes of quick walking can get your heart rate up and burn calories.
When you drink ice cold water, quickly, it boosts your metabolism in order to heat up the water in your body. You can burn approximately 25 calories with each glass of water you drink.
Don't sit still! Jiggle your foot, tap your fingers, shake your leg. If you're on a long phone call, get up and pace. The extra little movement throughout the day adds up.
Not only will cooking at home save you money it will also burn calories. Just spending a half hour to an hour cooking a nice meal will get you moving. Plus, the food you make at home is often healthier than restaurant food or take out.
Even though you're not hitting the gym, doing simple tasks around the house like vacuuming, mopping the floor, and even washing the dishes can burn extra calories. Pick one task to accomplish every night. You'll get the house clean, and get a work out without thinking about it.
