Burning the calories you consumed in the party last night, or on the girl’s/ boys’ night out yesterday or any other event is the thought that dominates the mind of almost every individual. For those who want to shed the extra kilos the task of burning calories is the most important yet one of the most difficult one. Many may hit the gym, go to the park, yoga classes etc on a regular basis; but there also those who may not seem to make it work.
So for the individual who finds it hard to make extra or special time for exercising, here are 10 fun and easy ways to burn those calories:
Taking the stairs
While at work or at home, one should ditch the elevator and move for the stairs instead. Taking the stairs help one burn the calories. Besides walking the stairs, skipping the stairs is also a good option and works better.
Taking a cold shower
Sounds weird right! How could taking a cold shower help one burn calories? Well, our body constantly works on keeping a temperature of 97 which is lowered by a cold shower. The body thus has to work more to maintain the temperature and burn more calories than usual.
Get sugar free gums and go on chewing your way. Chewing gum burns about 10 calories an hour. And it leaves you with a fresh breath.
Drink green tea
Many all around the world would swear by this method. Green tea is believed to contain particles which speed up the metabolism rate of one’s body thus speeding up the calories burning process.
Wash your car
Washing your car helps you burn calories and also helps you save some money in the process as well.
Shopping at supermarket
Whether it is grocery shopping or shopping house items, go to the super market. Walk fast through the lanes collecting the items you need, avoid wandering leisurely.
Do the easy housework such as dusting, arranging and organising etc. These are easy tasks which help burn calories.
Good news for those on the feet most of the time in the day. Standing straight up burns more calories than sitting and lounging around in ones free time.
Walk to office
Walking to the office or as far as one can to the office is one easy way to burn calories. It also helps you remain fit and active the rest of the day.
Shake your booty
Shaking to the groovy music is fun and can also help you burn a few calories. So the next time your song plays have fun.
