Easy Exercise

Often called “lifestyle activities”, these actions include cleaning the house or pushing a baby stroller. Studies have found that when performed daily, lifestyle activities are a great way to burn calories and work muscles.
And if you haven't exercised in a while, performing one lifestyle activity each day can help ready you for a more traditional exercise program.
What defines a lifestyle activity? According to a report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the activity should burn about 150 calories a day. Since some activities require more energy than others, the amount of time they require fluctuates between actions and individuals.
The following lifestyle activities each burn about 150 calories, with timelines based on the performance of healthy adults. Talk to your doctor about how long you should perform these activities when making them a part of your routine.

  • Washing windows/floors for 45 to 60 min.

  • Washing/waxing a car for 45 to 60 min.

  • Gardening for 30 to 45 min.

  • Walking 1-3/4 miles in 35 min. 

  • Raking leaves for 30 min.

  • Dancing fast for 30 min.

  • Pushing a stroller for 1-1/2 miles in 30 min.

  • Climbing stairs for 15 min.
